BBC Strictly Come Dancing's Bobby Brazier has set the record straight about his relationship with Ellie Leach.
Bobby and Ellie have been seen getting close together during the Strictly Come Dancing Live tour, sparking talk of a romance.
The two stars met on the BBC dance show last year and have been touring the UK with their Strictly mates. Rumours started circulating that they were an item when Ellie, 22, and Bobby, 20, were reportedly going on "secret dates" and seen holding hands.
Now that the Strictly tour is over, they're back to attending glitzy events. Both the soap stars attended the TV Choice Awards where Bobby seemed to clear up any rumours about their supposed romance.
Talking to The Sun, he said Ellie was "beautiful" and "amazing" but also that she is a "friend".
He made it clear they're just friends by saying: "She's a lovely, lovely, lovely friend of mine." About a possible future romance, Bobby said: "I don't know...you'll have to see what she says."
Just a few days ago, Bobby was seen getting close to Ellie and her mum after the last Strictly tour show. He was having a good laugh with her mum and even held her hand as they went up to Ellie's room with her dad.
Last night, Ellie's dance partner Vito Coppola, who people think she likes, posted a sweet video before their last show. Vito cuddled Ellie and kissed her on her head. He said: "Baby, are we about to perform our last show together? I love you so much." Ellie replied: "Love you so much."
Vito said they were feeling emotional and talked about how great the tour and everything had been. He said: "This was different with everyone."
"We are going to dance one last time." Ellie agreed: "Our last time." They hinted they would do an American smooth for their final
