Strictly smiles! Ellie Leach, Graziano and Vito fool around ahead of Saturday’s live show

Strictly Come Dancing stars Ellie Leach, Graziano De Prima and Vito Coppola were seen laughing and joking around as they left studios in London.

The Strictly stars had been filming for the spin-off show It Takes Two on Wednesday, 27 September when Italian professional dancers Graziano, 29, and Vito, 31, could be seen sharing a laugh. At one point Graziano got down on one knee and held out a bunch of flowers to Vito in a heartwarming moment.

Vito, who was celebrating his birthday, couldn't help but giggle at his pal as he reached out to take the flowers from him.

He was later seen carrying the flowers with a big grin on his face, looking cool and casual in a brown bomber jacket, white t-shirt and blue jeans.

The second live show of the 2024 series is just days away – with this year's celebrities taking to the dance floor once again on Saturday, 30 September.

Vito and Ellie are paired up, whilst Graziano is partnered with former Love Island and Made in Chelsea star, Zara McDermott.

The celebrities have been putting in the effort in training, and Zara, 26, recently showed off a gnarly looking injury, claiming half her toe had 'come off'.

The star took to Instagram to show her followers how rehearsing for the show was taking its toll on her feet.

She uploaded a video to her account – zooming in on a nasty wound she had suffered – along with the caption: “Half my toe has come off tbh.”

Laughing, she said: “I just have to let you all know that like half of my toe has come off. That’s half my toe!”

During last week’s opening Strictly show, Zara and her pro partner Graziano Di Prima scored 19 for their Cha Cha Cha.

Meanwhile, Ellie and Vito wowed the judges as they put on a challenging Jive, which earned them a very impressive 29 points.

Speaking ahead of the first live show, after it was announced that she would be joining Strictly, Ellie said: "Well, I've always wanted to do Strictly, always!

"Ever since I was younger, I've been obsessed with dancing and watching dancing. I used to do tap and ballet when I was younger, but I'm not trained.

"I think just coming out of Coronation Street, it's amazing to have a new experience and do something that I have never done before."

Ellie famously played Faye Windass in Coronation Street, before filming her final scenes which aired in July 2023.
