Strictly Come Dancing’s Dianne Buswell “fine” after fall in training with Dev Griffin

Dianne Buswell has insisted she’s “fine” after a fall in training for Strictly Come Dancing.


The pro dancer is performing with Radio 1 DJ Dev Griffin on this year’s series.

For this weekend’s Movie themed special, Dev and Dianne will dance the Couples’ Choice to Friend Like Me by Will Smith from Aladdin.

However it was reported that a tumble in training earlier this week saw Dianne taken to hospital.

A source had told The Sun newspaper: “Dev let her slip from his grasp and Dianne fell and landed on her head. It couldn’t have been worse.”

After a check up, Dianne was sent home by medics and took to social media today to insist she was “fine” and would be dancing tonight.

She wrote on Twitter: “morning everybody thank you for all the lovely msgs of concern . We had an accident key word being accident it was not devs fault at all these things happen .


“But great news is I’m fine and we both can not wait to dance tonight xxxx thanks again for your thoughts and well wishes”

She added of tonight’s performance: “Honestly this is going to be one hell of a movie week every body looks so incredible . I’m one excited monkey ? and a proud monkey @dev_101 another hard working week I’m excited for you to perform this dance”

Last weekend saw Dianne and Dev place a respectable fourth on the leaderboard of the fifteen celebrities after scoring 27 points for their jive.

Strictly Come Dancing 2019 continues Saturday night on BBC One from 7:10PM.

Sunday night will see the second elimination of the series as the viewer votes and judges’ votes combined will determine the next two celebrities who will have to dance off.


As well as the results, Sunday’s episode will feature a glittering group number from the Strictly professional dancers as they recreate iconic moments in cinematic history, as they dance us through the movies.

Plus, Grammy and Emmy Award winner Harry Connick Jr will perform live in the ballroom, singing the Broadway classic Anything Goes.
