Dianne Buswell responds to Strictly Come Dancing ‘fix’ claims

Dianne Buswell has responded to claims of a ‘fix’ after Dev Griffin’s Strictly Come Dancing’s departure.


There was a shock exit for Dianne and her celebrity partner Dev last month.

In the bottom two was Dev and Viscountess Emma Weymouth with the pair having to dance again for the judges to stay in the competition.

The panel sent Dev home and Dianne has confessed she put the blame on herself for his early elimination.

“I was gutted for Dev!” Dianne told FUBAR Radio “He gets one chance and you feel very responsible.. You put all the blame on yourself straight away.”

Dianne went on to defend the show, denying there was any ‘fixing’ of results: “Absolutely not!

“Strictly is such a well-oiled machine and I think that everything is done is one hundred percent fair; it’s the aim of the show”


Meanwhile, Dianne also spoke about her relationship with Joe Sugg who she danced with on the show last year.

Asked how things were between them, Dianne spilled: “Really good, we’re having a great time together.”

When asked what their first date was, Dianne revealed: “A tree house with his sister [Zoella] and her boyfriend!”

And she added they still dance “all the time” with Dianne sharing: “He gets so into it when I’m teaching him a dance.”


The remaining ten couples will take to the dancefloor this weekend when Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday 2nd November at 7PM on BBC One.

The the next results show is on Sunday 3rd November at 7.15PM.
