Strictly Dianne’s nights with Joe at his lux­ury flat

Daily Express - - For Brexit - By Ni­cola Methven

BLOGGER Joe Sugg and his Strictly Come Danc­ing pro­fes­sional partner Dianne Buswell fur­ther fu­elled ro­mance ru­mours by spend­ing two nights to­gether at his lux­ury apart­ment this week.

The pair were spot­ted leav­ing his Lon­don flat to­gether for train­ing on Wed­nes­day morn­ing hav­ing clearly spent the night there. They then re­turned that evening and emerged the next morn­ing again.

Show sources said the duo were train­ing for 12 hours a day in the run-up to tonight’s semi-fi­nal where they will per­form two dances rather than the usual one.

But it will do noth­ing to dis­pel the no­tion they are now dat­ing.


In Oc­to­ber Dianne, 29, split from her Emmerdale ac­tor boyfriend of 10 months An­thony Quin­lan.

Since then she and 27-year-old YouTube star Sugg, have been vir­tu­ally in­sep­a­ra­ble.

Ear­lier this week they ap­peared on This Morn­ing with Dianne gush­ing: “He is an ab­so­lute dream to teach. Ev­ery­thing I tell him he takes on board. Not only is he such a hard worker, he does it with so much fun. We haven’t had a day in the stu­dio where we haven’t laughed con­tin­u­ously…I’ve had the time of my life.”

When host Phillip Schofield quizzed them on whether they were dat­ing, Joe only smiled and said: “Do you know what? It’s so nice, I’ve met such a good friend in Dianne…” He said: “We’re so busy danc­ing! We haven’t got time!”

On tonight’s show the cou­ple will per­form an Ar­gen­tine Tango to Gren­fell fire­fighter Ricky Nut­tall Red Right Hand by Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, and a Vi­en­nese Waltz to David Gray’s This Year’s Love.

One in­sider said: “They spend so much time to­gether ev­ery­one thinks they must be an item. But they’re not let­ting on. Joe and Dianne in­sist they’re just good friends, but no one would be in the least sur­prised if they came out as a cou­ple once the show ends.”

TV documentary maker Stacey Doo­ley, 31, is odds-on favourite to win Strictly at 4-5 with lead­ing book­maker Coral. Joe Sugg is sec­ond at 5-2. The big­gest mover in the bet­ting over the past cou­ple of days is Par­a­lympic ath­lete Lau­ren Stead­man who is now 6-1.

She is also 4-5 to be the next to be elim­i­nated, with Ash­ley Roberts 3-1 and Faye Tozer at 5-1.

Coral’s John Hill said: “Stacey has been favourite to win from very early in the se­ries and sup­port in the bet­ting has just got big­ger with ev­ery per­for­mance.”

Favourite to lift the win­ner’s Glit­ter­ball tro­phy… Stacey Doo­ley with her per­sonal trainer boyfriend Sam Tuc­knott Guess­ing game… Joe and Dianne are keep­ing quiet about whether they are a cou­ple and, in­set, in ac­tion on the dance floor
