Over the last couple of weeks, rumours around Joe and Dianne being a couple were swirling.
The looks of love were hard to hide between the dancing duo, and the public LOVED the idea of them being together.
Although they didn't claim the top spot – they did take most of the attention after the Strictly final.
Stacey and Kevin got to go home with a plastic trophy while joe and Dianne got to go home with each other Who’s the real winner ?

Somewhat overshadowing the winners, Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton was confirmation that Joe and Dianne were, in fact, a couple.
To the nation's delight, our underdog hadn't walked away from the competition empty-handed.
He mightn't have claimed the trophy but Joe did find love.
But could he have waited at least a week to give everyone the much-needed nod that they had fallen for each other? – Yes.
It would have given Stacey her time to truly shine and full attention would have remained on her.
Don't get me wrong, I am delighted that Joe and Dianne are a couple.
They look so natural around each other that it was almost expected by 90 percent of the audience.
Just the timing of the announcement could have been made public down the line.
Joe took to Instagram and posted a sweet picture of the pair, confirming their romance.
He adorably wrote: "I may not have won the glitter ball, but I’ve won something a million times more special."
I must admit that he's an actual dote and they're a lovely couple.
Just in hindsight they might regret confirming their news so soon after Stacey's win.
