A number of the contestants who took part in the BBC series in 2023 are currently on the road travelling across the UK for the live tour.
They include the likes of winners Ellie and Vito Coppola, as well as runners-up Bobby and Dianne Buswell, and Layton Williams and Nikita Kuzmin.
Speculation has recently been growing that Ellie, 22, and Bobby, 20, are actually an item, despite people previously thinking that the Coronation Street actress had started dating her professional partner Vito, 31.
Nikita, 26, has now made fans’ theories appear even more validated by sharing an adorable picture of them holding hands.

The pro shared a compilation of backstage photos on his Instagram, several of which were particularly cheeky.
In the first image, Bobby, Layton and Vito joined dancers Robbie Kmetoni and Jake Leigh as they posed for the snap, with Robbie wearing just a pair of underpants with his back facing the camera.
In the fourth photo along, Bobby was seen sitting on a chair with Ellie behind him, the pair gripping each other’s hands while beaming with their faces cheek to cheek.
Next to the EastEnders actor, Robbie was sitting on a chair while embracing pro dancer Kai Widdrington.

Strictly viewers couldn’t get over the pictures as they commented in their droves underneath the post, with one person called Abs writing: ‘These pictures I never thought I needed. Literally thank you for posting these. Just slay it.’
‘What happens on tour stays on tour haha,’ joked Darren, while Zoe added: ‘Backstage looks the best fun.’
Remarking on the picture that featured Ellie and Bobby, Keeks commented: ‘Number 4 is so cute.’
Last month, the Strictly stars were spotted in high spirits as they headed out for dinner together, sporting matching bun hairstyles and wrapping up cold as they went to eat at Nando’s.
A few days later, Bobby shared a cryptic post on Instagram, writing in his caption: ‘With you I have everything.’
Strictly Come Dancing is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
