Dianne Buswell has shared a baby announcement – after fans feared that she’d split from boyfriend Joe Sugg.
Her close bond with Bobby has led to speculation over her relationship with her former Strictly partner Joe, 32.
But amid the rumours, Dianne took to Instagram on Saturday to announce some happy family baby news.
She revealed that her brother Andrew is expecting his second child with partner Melissa Lejman. The pair are already parents to a daughter, Zofia.
An ecstatic Dianne took to Instagram to share the news, writing on her story: ‘I can’t deal, your going to be the best big sis ! and i’m gonna be an aunty to another beautiful neice or nephew congrats @buzzballz1 @melskilejman.’
Andrew shared a post of his own, announcing: ‘This is how excited Zofia is to become a big sister in May 2024 .. our little bee hive is growing and we are Buzzing with excitement.’
On Saturday night Strictly fans praised Dianne and Bobby for their intense performance, which ended in a passionate near-kiss.
The pair danced the Argentine Tango to Sail by AWLONATION and placed in the middle of the leaderboard with 30 points out of 40.
At the end of the dance, Dianne slid over on her knees into Bobby’s arms as they embraced, foreheads pressed against one another.
Dianne has reportedly been ‘hit hard’ over the scrutiny of her five-year relationship with Joe Sugg due to her close bond with current Strictly celeb Bobby Brazier.
Fans had feared Dianne and Joe had split after an absence of social media posts – but they have since shown themselves to be going stronger than ever.
The professional dancer, 34, is said to be upset over ‘cruel remarks’ after Bobby, 20, declared his love for her.
Insiders close to Dianne say she is ‘very much still together’ with Joe, 32, but is feeling down after being bombarded by taunts from overzealous supporters of the YouTuber.
‘The cruel remarks she has read about her relationship with Bobby – who has been really supportive – have hit her hard,’ a source told The Mirror .
‘Her and Joe are still very much together and he has also been very supportive, and made it clear publicly that he has her back.’
And on Sunday, the two shared a series of loved-up snaps together, including swimming together and posing for an outfit mirror selfie.
Dianne is currently balancing her busy Strictly schedule with spending time with YouTuber boyfriend Joe, with whom she was partnered on the 2018 series.
Bobby, meanwhile, was last linked to Waterloo star, Tillie Amartey, also 20, in 2022 and despite it being over a year since their break-up, he is reportedly still ‘besotted’ with her.
He has been ‘constantly messaging’ the model and ‘hasn’t given up’ on their relationship.
The duo were last spotted together on their Instagram Stories in August 2021, with a source saying they ended their relationship in March 2022.
A source previously told The Mirror: ‘Bobby was really keen on her, but she decided to call time on the relationship, feeling they weren’t compatible.’
Bobby has since been linked to Storm model Liberty Love, but their relationship fizzled out.
