DIANNE Buswell is making a return for another season of Strictly Come Dancing, her third series since joining the hit BBC show.
We all know about her blossoming romance with her 2018 dancing partner Joe Sugg, but what else you need to know about the red-haired dancer?
Who is Dianne Buswell?
Dianne Buswell is a 30-year-old professional dancer from Australia.
The Banbury native started ballroom dancing at the young age of 4.
The redhead has had an extensive career but described joining Strictly Come Dancing in 2017 as a “challenge”.
Dianne said: “What an honour it is to be a part of Strictly Come Dancing. Words can’t describe how excited I am to take on this amazing challenge and give it my everything”.
In 2018 Dianne made it to the final with YouTuber Joe Suggs where they were runners’ up.
Who is Dianne Buswell partnered with on Strictly Come Dancing?
The professional dancers are yet to find out who they will be paired up with on the BBC dance show.
However, the pairings will be revealed during the Strictly Come Dancing: Launch Show, which is prerecorded on Friday, August 30, 2019.
Host Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman launch the new series, partnering up the celebrities with their professional dance partners.
Is Dianne Buswell still dating Joe Sugg?
Dianne and Joe Sugg are still very much an item and the proof is in the social media posts.
The pair are constantly sharing pictures of themselves on micro-blogging websites like Instagram.
Many of the snaps are of them enjoying romantic breaks aboard.
On December 16. 2018 Joe FINALLY confirmed his romance with Dianne the day after the Strictly final.
The 27-year-old shared a picture of himself with his pro dance partner.
He gushed: “I may not have won the glitter ball, but I’ve won something a million times more special.”
On January 17, The Sun Online’s Bizarre column exclusively revealed that their non-stop PDA had left their colleagues uncomfortable during the Strictly tour rehearsals.
One fed-up insider said: “Nobody objects to them having a romance. But this behaviour belongs in the bedroom.
“The kissing and cuddling is around the clock. They touch each other all the time — it’s like they’ve been glued together.
“Some people have even urged them to put each other down. Rehearsals have been a nightmare for the rest of us.
“They’re obviously in the honeymoon period of their relationship. But they seem to forget everyone else has to watch it.”
What is Dianne Buswell’s dance experience?
Dianne is an Australian Open Champion and four-time Amateur Australian Open Finalist.
Strictly isn’t the first time she’s showing off her dancing skills in a star-studded competition show as she has been on Dancing with the Stars in Australia.
Dianne has also taken part in various musicals throughout her career.
These include Legally Blonde, Rock of Ages and she has been a part of the Burn The Floor production on Broadway since 2011.
