The Strictly celebrities and contestants arrived in Leeds in the early hours of the morning ahead of their next tour show.

It comes soon after Bobby was reportedly seen knocking on Ellie’s hotel room door in just his pants, while staying at the Malmaison hotel in Birmingham.

To celebrate the tour kicking off, a party was thrown in the hotel bar when the soap star was spotted in his underwear on the sixth floor.

A hotel guest told The Sun: ‘Bobby was in our corridor knocking on Ellie’s door after their late-night bash at the hotel.

‘Bobby was clearly not shy about nearly being in the buff as we were making our way down to breakfast.’

Bobby and the former Coronation Street actress have continued to fuel romance rumors they are an item.

According to insiders the two have grown closer since embarking on the UK tour this month.

The pair have also been pictured enjoying time together away from their Strictly co-stars, cozying up on a low-key date at Nando’s earlier this month and arriving at the hotels together.

Ellie and her pro partner Vito Coppola were crowned Strictly champions last year, with the pair repeatedly dogged by romance rumors throughout the series.

The former Coronation Street actress became the show’s youngest ever winner as she pipped Bobby and Layton Williams to the post.

Following the news about her and Bobby’s rumored romance, her cheating ex-boyfriend Reagan Pettman says he wants to ‘rebuild the trust’ with the star while admitting he’s ‘not proud’ of kissing another girl behind her back.

Ellie dated dancer Reagan for five years before they went their separate ways in May last year.

She reportedly joined the cast of Strictly last year to heal her heartbreak following her break-up.

He told The Sun on Sunday: ‘I hurt her and broke her heart. I’m not proud of it.
