She’s a fierce, fabulous redhead - and she's back for another year! All the way from Australia, Dianne is bringing even more of her stunning smile and incredible energy to Strictly.

Her first celebrity partner Reverend Richard Coles didn't quite dazzle the Judges, bowing out of the 2017 competition in Week Three. But in 2018, coupling up with social media star Joe Sugg proved to be a great success, as they made it all the way to the Grand Final.

She didn't get quite so far in 2019 with radio DJ Dev Griffin, as the couple were voted out in Week Four. Here's hoping Dianne's luck is back on track for 2020!


Dianne's starred on So You Think You Can Dance Australia and Dancing with the Stars Australia, so she's no stranger to a bit of competition.

She’s also an Australian Open Champion and four-time Amateur Australian Open Finalist, as well as being part of the Burn The Floor production on Broadway since 2011.
