Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell met on Strictly Come Dancing 2018 and the girlfriend and boyfriend are still stronger than ever - here's what you need to know about their relationship.
Weeks after the show came to an end, and following months of speculation about their rumoured romance, Joe and Dianne went public with their relationship and confirmed they were boyfriend and girlfriend on Instagram.
Here’s a complete timeline of Joe and Dianne’s relationship…
The showbiz couple revealed in 2019 they would be embarking on a joint UK dance tour which was due to kick off at the end of March, however, due to the coronavirus pandemic they have moved the dates to a later date.
After rehearsing the live shows for months, the YouTube bloggers were heartbroken to have postponed the dates but assured fans: "Rescheduling shows is the last thing we want to do, but these are strange times and we have to keep everyone safe."
In the meantime, during isolation, Joe and Dianne have been sharing video tutorials of dances and live-blogging their attempts at cooking to keep their followers entertained.
While they never shared the exact date they took their friendship to the next level, Dianne’s Instagram upload in November seemed to hint they’d soon be celebrating their one-year anniversary.
“I don’t think there’s been a single day since I met him where we haven’t laughed,” she wrote alongside a snap of them cuddled up in bed together.
The heartfelt post came just over a year after the pair first met.
Dianne opened up about the hopes she has for her future with Joe in September’s issue of Happiful, telling the publication he’d be a great dad.
She told them: “He’d be like that dad that dresses up for them – he’d play characters everyday, he’d be a lot of fun, he’d be just like a kid!”
It wasn’t the first time they’d been hit by engagement rumours, but in March this year the couple’s Strictly co-star Neil Jones fuelled the speculation after he tweeted: “I think @Joe_Sugg might be buying some knee pads as he keeps talking about getting on one knee.”
He followed it up with: “It’s hard to understand but something about having a big surprise for @dbuzz6589 but first he needs to speak to her dad and he said something about bells.”
Neil was clearly joking, but months earlier the couple had ignited reports they were set to wed after Dianne posted a selfie of them together with a gold band on her wedding finger.
When the BBC One show finally came to an end they revealed their relationship to the world, with Joe sharing an adorable picture of the two, with the caption: “I may not have won the glitter ball, but I’ve won something a million times more special.”
Fast forward one year and the couple now appear regularly in each other’s YouTube videos and are planning to head on tour in 2020.
In October 2018 it was reported Dianne had broken up with her Emmerdale star boyfriend Anthony Quinlan, with rumours claiming their fiery personalities came to a head but there was “no bad blood” between them.
During their split, Dianne had been paired with YouTuber Joe for Strictly and they were at the centre of the ‘Strictly curse’ rumours for weeks.
