Joe Sugg reacts to girlfriend Dianne and Bobby's romantic Strictly dance after 'near-kiss'

Joe Sugg has reacted to girlfriend Dianne Buswell’s latest Strictly Come Dancing 2023 routine.

The former contestant took to Instagram to comment on the dancer’s romantic American Smooth with partner Bobby Brazier.

The 32-year-old gushed about his other half, 34, and the EastEnders actor, 20, as he gave a public show of support in view of his 6.8 million followers.

It comes just one week after the show partnership had viewers talking, with them claiming there was a “near-kiss” between them.

Joe, who took part in the BBC hit in 2018, branded the duo’s performance their “best ballroom” of the competition.

He also said he was “very proud” of Dianne, whom he met thanks to the programme and they started dating soon afterwards.

Sharing a video of their dance, he wrote: “Best ballroom yet from the Bobby Dazzler @bobbybrazier.

“And @diannebuswell your choreography – v proud of ya,”(sic) alongside an applause and heart emoji.

Dianne soon replied: “Thank you my angel,” in view of her own 968,000 fans.

Joe’s sister Zoe Sugg also posted, gushing: “One of my favourites you’ve both done so far! Absolutely GORGEOUS @diannebuswell @bobbybrazier.”

Dianne spoke out after the show, urging: “Please help us get to Blackpool and vote xxx I think Bobby’s best dance yet.”(sic)

“So proud of our dance tonight,” after the pair found themselves right in the middle of the leaderboard.

She added with a snap of her father: “When dad calls you to say watching Bobby and I dance made him instantly feel better.”

Former show professional Kevin Clifton was also one of many watching at home who gushed about their set, which saw them dance to Ghost of You by 5 Seconds of Summer.

“Great number guys,” he stated online, with a clapping graphic, for which she thanked him.

Last Saturday, Dianne and Bobby’s sizzling Argentine Tango set tongues wagging, with one viewer tweeting: “Whoa hold on a minute! Did we just see a full blown kiss at the end of Bobby and Diane’s dance I’m sure we did.”(sic)

However, he left her seemingly shocked during the latest instalment when he shared a very honest insight into his personal life.

Strictly Come Dancing returns tonight at 7.20pm on BBC One.
