Following rumours that YouTube vlogger Joe Sugg has been romancing his Strictly Come Dancing professional partner Dianne Buswell, Joe has now publicly spoken about the matter for the first time. Sugg said the following: “There’s nothing in it. If we were dating, everyone would see it,” adding: “It would be very visible.”
His statement come after tons of speculation about the two following Dianne’s split from her long-term boyfriend Anthony Quinlan. When you add the fact that guest judge Alfonso Ribeiro talked of their ‘great connection,’ as you can imagine, tongues started wagging.
Joe told the Sunday People that it was “interesting” to see and read that they were pictured kissing in Blackpool after the show’s famous special episode. That being said, he also explained that he doesn’t have “time to think about that stuff” because he’s “much more focused on dancing.”
Word on the street is that Joe is easily one of the favourites to win this series of Strictly, and Joe has said that his “whole experience has been of massive ups and downs of pressure.” Adding: “I handle the pressure well in certain circumstances, like on the actual night when the crowd is there. I actually perform better when there is a bigger crowd, which is a bit odd,’ he added. ‘But in terms of being a favourite, that is quite an intense pressure. You really do feel that everyone’s eyes are on you. You do sort of feel it.”
