Dianne and Joe have been together since 2018 when they were paired together on Strictly. Dianne shut down rumours of their split during an appearance on ITV’s Lorraine on Monday. When asked if the pair were still dancing together, Dianne responded with a smile.

“Yes, we are! He puts on his little ballroom frame almost every day and he’s getting better. He actually is very good and I’d love to do a proper competition with him and see how he goes,” she said.

The pair have reportedly found another house together, which is why they are selling their existing property.
