A new throwback photo from Dianne Buswell of Bobby Brazier and Ellie Leach hints that the pair have been dating for longer than fans first speculated. The Strictly Come Dancing star shared a throwback mirror selfie on her Instagram Stories with Vito Coppola, Ellie and Bobby from their last week on the BBC show.

In the picture, Bobby is seen hugging Ellie from behind, both smiling at the camera – a very PDA-heavy pose. Ellie looks relaxed and happy as she takes the photo, while Dianne and Vito pose to the side in the training room. This comes as the Coronation Street actress, 22, and the EastEnders actor, 20, have seemed very close recently after the Strictly tour.

Looking very cheery, the young actors were spotted leaving a London bar after Ellie’s stage debut last week in Cluedo 2 at Richmond Theatre. Bobby treated the Strictly winner to drinks before they were seen leaving No 1 Duke Street bar in London, laughing together.

They were also seen on a late-night walk, with fans speculating they are more than just friends. They walked arm-in-arm in London and then Ellie let Bobby into a flat, with him carrying what looked like an overnight bag, reports the Mirror.

Rumours of a romance between the couple started when they embarked on the Strictly Come Dancing live tour. The pair appeared close to each other in photos shared on social media and were spotted cosied up in a hotel lobby after the tour.

Bobby was also seen holding hands with Ellie’s mum at one point.

However, the former model has remained tight-lipped about a budding romance. Speaking previously to The Sun, he called Ellie “beautiful” and “amazing” but added: “She is a lovely lovely friend of mine.”

When pressed on any romance between them, he insisted: “She’s a lovely, lovely, lovely friend of mine.”

OK! also quizzed Bobby about the romance rumours at the TV Choice Awards. At the time, he said he had no plans for Valentine’s Day despite all the speculation around his relationship status.

Discussing if he had any plans, he said: “No, no, not yet. Maybe I will. If someone asked me out..”

Bobby and Ellie’s reps have been contacted for comment.
