Who is Ellie?

Ellie comes from Livingston, near Edinburgh, Scotland.

She began dancing aged three and made it through to the live shows in week four.

Ellie described herself as quite a shy and nervous person but said on the show: “When I’m dancing I come alive”.

In episode 5, she took on the fairytale challenge and once again blew the judges away.

Ellie perfectly executed her contemporary performance to Sia’s ‘Bird Set Free’.
