As all Strictly aficionados will know, the Argentine Tango requires huge levels of passion, as the dancers gaze into each other’s eyes with very little distance between their bodies.

The pair began by explaining the animals that they’ve taken inspiration from for their dance, including a scorpion, panther, cobra – ‘the whole jungle’.

Discussing the immense level of ‘control’ that’s needed for the Argentine Tango, Vito shared: ‘It’s difficult because coming from the last week, it was very spread out, everything. This is completely in, so you have a ball of fire, just keep in. Look at me, and I said, “Eat me with your eyes.”’

‘Vito: “just eat me with your eyes”. Don’t worry hun I think the majority of the country does that every week,’ one person wrote mischievously.

‘“Eat me with your eyes” Vito I’m DEAD,’ another remarked.

Someone else joked: ‘Steady on Vito,’ while another added after watching their dance: ‘Nah, you will NOT convince me that Ellie and Vito aren’t dating after THAT.’

The actress’ mum revealed that the dancer fit right in with the family, while fans were elated after the pair .
