Strictly Come Dancing stars Ellie Leach and Bobby Brazier have made a joint public appearance amid speculation they are dating.

The two stars have been at the centre of romance rumours for a number of weeks now as they both competed on the Strictly Live tour – though Bobby has since denied that this is the case.

Nevertheless, 2023 series winner Ellie and runner-up Bobby both appeared together on the red carpet yesterday evening (February 21) for the press night of Hadestown at the Lyric Theatre in London's West End.

Speaking just last week, EastEnders star Bobby told The Sun that he and Ellie were just "good friends".

"We spent a lot of time together on the tour, which I love because we were just always pretty close to each other, but that's all," he added.

Bobby continued: "I hope to stay in touch with her. I met her parents too, they're brilliant. The tour was always fun backstage, it was like one big party and we got to become better friends with people."

The actor previously called Ellie a "lovely friend of mine", while the Coronation Street actress was also asked about the rumours.

“We’re all on tour together, it’s been really nice to actually spend time with each other," she said of the recent Strictly tour.

"During the show, you’re with your partner all the time really and you don’t really get to see any of the other pros or the celebrities. So on tour we have really bonded and it does feel like a big family. It’s been so much fun.”

Ellie herself was previously subject to speculation that she was romantically involved with Strictly partner Vito Coppola, though later clarified that they have "a really strong bond and a friendship that will last forever".

Strictly Come Dancing will return later this year on BBC One, while spin-off Strictly: It Takes Two airs on weeknights on BBC Two. Both shows are available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
