Strictly's Dianne Buswell reveals she and Joe Sugg 'struggle' due to key lifestyle difference

Strictly's Dianne Buswell has revealed that there's one key difference between her and boyfriend Joe Sugg that they 'struggle' with.

Professional dancer Dianne, 34, and YouTuber Joe, 32, first met in 2018. They struck up a relationship months later and are still going strong five years on.

Naturally, with her profession being a dancer, Dianne has a strict exercise regime, however, there are no couple's workouts with Joe, as she revealed that they prefer to workout at different times of the day.

Speaking to the Mirror, she said: "We're very different. In fact, I love a morning workout. Joe loves an evening one. So we struggle in that sense. I could not think of anything worse at that time."

The pair have recently faced rumours that they were estranged

Dianne and Joe first crossed paths almost six years ago, on the set of Strictly where Joe - better known as vlogger Zoella's younger brother, showcased his dance moves with Dianne as his professional partner. Coming second to Stacey Dooley and partner Kevin Clifton, the pair's undeniable chemistry was evident throughout the competition.

As their romance flourished off-camera, they have strived to keep it low-key and away from intrusive lenses.

However, being in the public eye comes with its own baggage and Dianne and Joe have been the subject of many rumours over the years. While Dianne is frequently linked to her Strictly co-stars with speculations circulating around her close bond with Bobby Brazier from Eastenders in 2023, Joe had quashed engagement talks in February 2024.

Speaking to The Mirror in March 2023, Dianne casually shrugged off the wedding whispers herself, affirming there was no pressing time for them to exchange vows. She confessed at the time: "We haven't really spoken about it, so if it happens, great. If not, we're happy with how things are going."

Apart from the frequent engagement chatter, the pair were also rumoured to be navigating through a tumultuous phase in their relationship. The chatter started when Dianne was seen visiting her family in Australia without her boyfriend by her side.

But she shrugged off the rumours, saying to Closer magazine: "It makes me laugh that people think I wouldn't go and see my family without Joe. It blows my mind."

Even though marriage isn't topping their list currently, Dianne hasn't deterred the idea of having children down the line. "I think definitely at one point we'll have children," she divulged, before further adding "it's something we'd both love, but we don't know when just yet. We always say our kids are going to watch YouTube videos of us dancing one day, and that's so cool!"

During a cosy Q&A session with her Instagram followers, Dianne shared: "We love being aunt and uncle for our beautiful nieces and nephew for now, but yes one day we would love it."

Last year, the Strictly star and Joe waved goodbye to their chic four-bedroom detached house, which was on the market for a cool £1.35 million, and upgraded to a fabulous five-bedroom Brighton pad, snapping up the property for an eye-watering £3.5 million.

Dianne has been giving us major home envy as she flaunts her new digs on social media. The place is a sprawling 7,741 square feet of pure luxury, boasting five bathrooms, six reception areas, a grand double staircase, and an open plan kitchen and lounge that opens up to a pristine garden.
