Vito gushed: “Of course, we try every single time to give our best, we have to put so much commitment and put as much as we can in the moment. But mistakes happen, we’re human.
“We started from nothing, zero. Ellie never danced before. It was not like a white page, it was like a transparent page.
He continued: “We went from zero and we are building every week. I am so so happy, she is doing great and making me proud, herself and her family, everyone.”
He later added: “We are having our journey, like a rollercoaster. It’s amazing, I cannot put it into words how beautiful this journey is together.”
Turning to Ellie to beam at her affectionately, he put one arm around her back as he continued: “To have met this beautiful [girl],”
He then planted a kiss on Ellie’s cheek as she smiled, causing Lauren to exclaim: “You two!”
Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday on BBC One from 6.05pm.
