‘In the show dance there was lots of twists and turns and when I turned, I snotted all over my face.’

Fighting back laughter she continued: ‘I kept messing up the steps because I got so embarrassed that I had snot all over me, and Vito was like “Why do you keep messing up?”

‘It’s because I had snot all over me!’Ā 

Vito interrupted: ‘But I was confused because I thought, “If everything is going right, why do you keep going wrong?”

‘In the end there was just some fluid liquid everywhere!’

On Friday night, Vito also shared a video he and Ellie recorded at the end of their last rehearsal before the Strictly final.

The pair, who have sparked romance rumours for months, wrapped their arms around each other as they snuggled on the sofa with tears in their eyes.

They thanked their fans and each other for their support and spoke about how much their lives had changed.

Vito wrote in the caption: ‘A week ago, today, we got emotional after our last rehearsalā€¦and we are more than happy to share this special moment with you all, beautiful people.

‘There are no words to describe all the feelings and the emotionsā€¦itā€™s just this. Thank you.’

Fighting back laughter she continued: 'I kept messing up the steps because I got so embarrassed that I had snot all over me, and Vito was like "Why do you keep messing up?"
