BBC Strictly's Dianne Buswell sends message to Joe Sugg amid Christmas split rumours

Strictly Come Dancing professional Dianne Buswell has sent a message to her partner Joe Sugg amid rumours of a split. Fans of the BBC dance competition have been speculating that the couple have called it quits after Dianne returned to her native Australia for Christmas - without Joe.

But the couple, who reached the Strictly final paired together in 2018 and have been in a relationship ever since, appear to be going strong after a social media post by Dianne. The 33-year-old dancer has been sharing photos and videos during her trip Down Under with her 893,000 Instagram followers.

Most of the posts feature family members as they spend time together over the festive period. Now, Dianne seems to have quashed the rumours around her and Joe by sharing an amusing photo of her beau.

She posted a throwback snap of YouTuber and actor Joe wearing what appears to be a beekeepers outfit. Dianne wrote: "Going through my camera roll and and this made me lol @joesugg" followed by laughing face emojis, reported Birmingham Live.

Some fans had played down the speculation surrounding the couple, who confirmed they were living together back in 2019 before buying a house early last year. Denise wrote: "They might be a couple but they're still individuals with families to spend time with, not every couple need to be together 24/7, it's healthy to be apart sometimes."

Moni posted: "It's very hard to spend time with families when there is distance involved. If a relationship is solid then there is not an issue, it just makes the reunion even better. Skype/ FaceTime/ WhatsApp etc don’t make it seem so bad anyway."

Hannah added: "Take a shot every time someone asks unnecessary invasive questions as to the Xmas plans of strangers they’ve never met! Your Xmas looks so lovely and hope you have the best time in Oz!!" Megan agreed: "They are still happy together but they just ain’t spending Christmas together they are spending new years together though."

Dianne joined the Strictly cast in 2017 after being a professional on the Australian version Dancing with the Stars. She was paired with TV and radio presenter Tyler West on this year's series before they were the eighth couple to leave the show.
