The group looked fabulous

Captioning the photo, the comedian wrote: "And this incredible beauty @helenskelton. I can't tell you what a gorgeous bunch of humans my classmates are, man. Honestly just [diamonds]," alongside a diamond emoji.

On Friday, Helen and Ellie performed in their first week of the competition and both oozed elegance in their respective routines, Helen performed a gorgeous American Smooth, whilst Ellie performed an upbeat Quickstep.

Chatting to HELLO! and other reporters ahead of the show’s launch on Friday, Helen joked: "I was really last minute, so I think the paper knew before I did!" Before going into details about her decision to take part in the show.

The pair look so close

She explained: "I don’t think about it. I'm just literally like so stupidly naive that I just wait until the next thing. So I haven't thought about it which is probably gonna hit me like a train when it happens. But equally, I interview for sports, there’s nothing more nerve-wracking than interviewing a player who has been sent off or a coach who has lost their job.

"I had to interview Tom Daley in Rio after he had the best preliminary round ever, best scores ever, and then he had a shocker at the actual final and I had to interview him live. I’ve known Tom since he was about eight and all I wanted to do is hug him, but can you imagine, how unprofessional! But that for me, that is what’s nerve-wracking about live TV because I was like, 'Oh the hopes of the nation were on you and you failed!'"
