Another Strictly break-up: Dianne Buswell splits from boyfriend

It's believed that Dianne has "grown close" with her celebrity Strictly Come Dancing partner, YouTuber Joe.

On Friday, various outlets reported that Dianne and Anthony - who played Gilly in "Hollyoaks" for six years, and now stars as Pete Barton in "Emmerdale" - had chosen to end their relationship after 10 months.

Seann Walsh is reportedly getting the cold treatment behind the scenes at Strictly Come Dancing. "Everyone on set's been discussing how close they'd become".

A representative for Buswell confirmed the break-up to Metro: "Due to their busy schedules and distance they have split but still remain really close friends". "It did not go unnoticed by Anthony", the insider revealed to The Sun.

"They are quite a fiery pair and have been clashing a bit more than often lately".

'It was always felt that Seann wasn't as liked from the start but after he was pictured kissing Katya those feelings against him have only intensified'.


"There's not bad blood between them but it looks like a reconciliation is off the cards this time".

"A couple of weeks ago they just decided enough was enough and ended things".

Dianne Buswell is now partnered with YouTuber Joe Sugg.

Anthony and Dianne were introduced by actress Gemma Atkinson, who is dating Strictly professional Gorka Marquez, in December after she worked with Anthony on Emmerdale.

It was reported that Strictly bosses were keen to sign Anthony for this years series and have the first life celeb-and-professional dance couple, but ITV would not let the actor amend his soap commitments.

The 32-year-old comedian was in a relationship when he was pictured locking lips with his dance partner - who is married to fellow "Strictly" star Neil Jones - and it has now been claimed that his actions have caused him to be ostracised from the WhatsApp group which has been joined by all the current show's competitors and their partners.
