The current series of Strictly Come Dancing is reaching one of the most exciting stages of the competition with Blackpool just around the corner, but we’re already dreading the end of the 2019 show.

Luckily, the series will return for a once off Christmas special and we’re feeling awfully excited about it since Strictly revealed the stellar line up.

Plenty of familiar faces are set to return to the ballroom this Christmas, including the wonderful Gemma Atkinson. The new mum ended up falling in love with Strictly professional dancer Gorka Marquez and gave birth to their first child earlier this year.

“The sequins really are going back on for Christmas. Back to being out of my comfort zone, out of my trackies and into high heels! Wish me luck!” the mum wrote.

As well as Gemma Atkinson, Joe Sugg will also return to Strictly. The Internet star will be joined by former TOWIE star Mark Wright, actress Chizzy Akudolu, journalist Richard Arnold and Debbie McGee.

Fans of the show were overjoyed with the lineup. They expressed their delight online.

“Woohoo, so happy to see all these faces back on the dance floor,” one said.

Another added, “Amazing line up – hope Gemma and Gorka dance together!”

One shared, “Best Christmas line-up ever.”

What do you think of this year’s Strictly Christmas line-up?


They have been posting about their blossoming relationship on social media since they went public with their romance in December.

And it's clear to anyone that Strictly's Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell are madly in love.

However, while their PDA's are cute, it seems that their co-stars on the Strictly live tour are not big fans of the public smooching.

It ahs been reported that their fellow dancers are tired of their kissing and cuddling during rehearsals, which has apparently led to a series of rows.

Things came to  ahead which Joe and Dianne deciding to go to a nearby five-star hotel Titanic, instead of staying at the heading to the Hilton Hotel in Liverpool where the other Strictly stars are staying. 

It was reported that, ''It’s caused some ill feeling between them and the others and it can’t be laughed off as a joke anymore…it seems like Joe and Dianne are giving everyone the fingers by doing their own thing.''


A post shared by Dianne Buswell (@diannebuswell) on

Joe has uploaded a sweet snap of him and Dianne to Instagram in their hotel room at the Titanic.

He captioned it, ''Making memories with this girl (But also making cool self-timer photos as a little side project).''

Dianne also posted a snap of her in the same hotel room, thanking Joe for organising a day off for them.

With the tour still going until February 10 we wonder how this will pan out until then…watch this space. 


This years Strictly Come Dancing had so much romance in the air – and now former contestant Vick Hope has spilled the beans on what went on behind the scenes.

The radio DJ, who as partnered with pro dancer Graziano di Prima, opened up to Hello! magazine about how she spotted certain relationships blossoming on the BBC show.

She also spoke about how her and her classmates had formed a strong bond since the finale in December.

The show saw two relationships flourish during the competition and they were celebrities Joe Sugg and Ashley Roberts and pro dancers Dianne Buswell and Giovanni Pernice. 

When it came to Joe and Dianne, their chemistry was apparent.

Vick said, ''To be honest, we sort of saw it coming! But of course nobody was going to say anything. But yes it's so sweet and so cute, I love how dancing brings them together and then some!"

Sooo adorbs. 

She continued, ''When we were doing the show, everyone was so professional and it was all about the dancing and the competition, and everyone was really focused. They would not let any relationship get in the way of that and they kept that separate. And it is only now that the show has finished that they are showing it a bit more."

Strictly might be finished for another year but the 29-year-old has another project to keep her busy. 

She has been narrating E4's new series of Shipwrecked and is loving it. 

She said, ''It was the kind of show I wanted to be on because they got to travel and meet people and spend time on this beautiful island. The producers would send me edits of each episode, and I would run myself a bath and have a glass of red, and properly enjoy it as if I was watching it so I could get a feel for them, and for the art of it and the narrative.''


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.

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.


A post shared by Stacey Dooley (@sjdooley) on

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.


A post shared by Joe (@joe_sugg) on

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. 


In preparation for tonight’s Strictly Come Dancing final, the finalists opened up about what their favourite experience has been so far.

Speaking to the press post-rehearsal, the stars revealed how much their lives have changed since joining the show this year.

Youtuber Joe Sugg has won hearts as he danced his way through the show, building lasting relationships along the way.

But the TV personality recently realised he’s had the most effect on the younger generation.

Joe has inspired young boys everywhere to pursue their passion of dance despite pressures from their peers.

“When I was younger at school, we didn’t do dance. If you were a boy you didn’t do dance, it wasn’t an option.

“Well, it was an option, but you did sport or…just not dance. But I’ve had so many messages from younger guys going: ‘I would never normally think about doing dance but doing Strictly I can see you having so much fun.’


A post shared by Joe (@joe_sugg) on

“This is something I never thought I’d say, but I’ve kind of made it…cool?”

The Youtuber has over eight million subscribers, so to say his actions influence young boys is an understatement.

“I’m not cool, but for them,” he continued. “I’ve made it kind of more acceptable and they’ve been like ‘I’ve been to dance classes with my girlfriend’.


A post shared by BBC Strictly (@bbcstrictly) on

“That for me is like one of the best thing about doing this show, the effect it’s having on a younger generation, and hopefully getting them into dance.”

It is great to see the charming dancer become a positive role model for boys everywhere by breaking traditional, gender stereotypes.

Make sure to tune in for the Strictly final tonight at 6:30pm on BBC One.


It is the Strictly semi-finals and this week, the pressure is on the five remaining couples.

And Joe Sugg, after having strong weeks and high scores, came crashing down during the show when both of his dances failed to get the level of praise from the judges that the YouTube star has grown used to.

The 27-year-old took to the dance floor with his pro dance partner Dianne Buswell to do two dances – a Viennese Waltz and an Argentine Tango.

He received a score of 29 for his first dance, which put him at the bottom of the leader board.

Judge Craig Revel Horwood said, "Way too much rise and fall, it almost became a waltz.''

He continued, ''All the movement I thought was too harsh and it made it look rigid. I don't think its your best ballroom to be honest.''


A post shared by Joe (@joe_sugg) on

Fans were not happy with this critique and insisted that he was under marked while others were not as heavily penalised. 

Others suggested that the way the judges scored the dances was a fix.

One wrote, ''Joe did better than Lauren and Ashley but gets Scored Lower …. I think it might be rigged #strictly."

While another said, ''So far I feel everyone tonight has been way over marked, except Joe who’s defiantly been under marked. #Strictly.''

The Results Show is on BBC One tonight at 7:15pm.  


Our hearts are breaking. 

One Strictly couple, rumoured to be in the throes of a passionate love affair, have poured cold water all over the whispers.

Yes, Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell have addressed rumours that they are an item. 

While their amazing chemistry is what's been sparking rumours of a romance, it is something that Joe strongly denies. 


The 27-year-old said,  "There's nothing in it – if we were dating everyone would see it.''

He continued, "Rumours like this have gone on throughout the show's history. I understood before signing up that it's something people really get into."

It seems that people speculating about his love life is not something the YouTube vlogger is a big fan of. 

He said, ''Obviously it's a bit weird to be drawn into that stuff for me. It's not nice – it's something you can't control."


‘Street Joe got two 10’s!’  #Strictly

Dianne was pictured heading to Joe's flat training, which obvs added fuel to the fire.

In a YouTube video that came out later, Joe says, "We're getting the video in early this week, check us out. It's the end of the week and we're already smashing it out. Go team Joanne. As you can see, Dianne and myself. We're in my house."

He joked, "Dianne's around my house, I can't believe it. That can only mean one thing, Dianne's around my house for a YouTube video, it must mean we're going out with each other."

Dianne added, "It must mean that. Hello, boyfriend."

Well, we better not rush out to buy our hats any time soon.

Strictly continues this Saturday on BBC One at 7:05pm. 


Joe Sugg continues to perform well on Strictly Come Dancing, and it’s clear to see where he gets his moves from.

His grandmother Phyllis was a talented ballroom dancer in the 1940s, often frequenting the famous Blackpool Tower Ballroom.

And even though Joe had no prior dance training before his time on Strictly, the dancing gene has shown itself time and time again.

“I feel like I must have picked up something from my nan because she gave it a go back when she was younger and must have been good at it, having danced in Blackpool,” he told the Press Association.

Joe is close with both of his grandparents and has featured them in his hilarious and relatable Youtube videos.

In this video, his grandad is bustling around the kitchen being noisy af when Joe stops talking and zooms in on his flared nostrils.

"Am I being too noisy?" his grandad asks. And Joe replies, "No, it's fine" in that passive aggressive tone we know all too well.

But like grandparents do, they offered Joe cupcakes and all was forgiven. 

And now, the 27-year-old can't wait for his grandmother to come watch his next dance with partner Dianne Buswell,

Travelling over 200 miles from Wiltshire, the 96-year-old is overcoming her chronic hip pain to watch the Youtuber's Blackpool performance.

Joe said, “She doesn’t really move very well. She’s in her chair a lot of the time and she’s got really bad hips but she has agreed that she will come up and watch me.

“She’s been so proud, so supportive of me the whole way. She loves it, especially the ballroom stuff. If I could do a ballroom [dance] in Blackpool that would be really, really nice for her."


A post shared by Joe (@joe_sugg) on

Maybe the Youtuber will chance his arm and perform her beloved ballroom dance.

Either way, we are excited for Joe's next performance with Dianne. They are the perfect pair!


Strictly Come Dancing has revealed the next contestant in their celebrity lineup. In a first for the show, a YouTuber will hit the Stricly dance floor this season.

Vlogger and author Joe Sugg has been confirmed as the fourth contestant. 

“My knowledge of dance isn't the best, so I'm just going to go into it completely open minded,” he said.

Joe did admit that he’s feeling slightly nervous about all the tan and lycra he’ll have to wear:  “I do feel pretty nervous about it. I just hope they have child sizes as I'm tiny!”

Strictly confirmed Katie Piper as the first contestant yesterday morning.

The mum decided to take part in the show to boost her confidence: “'I think it gives a wider message, my past is irrelevant, to be able to go forward and do these things is a bigger wider message. That’s something I want to take forward, and it’s nice to be part of something so light-hearted!''

Star of stage and screen Danny John-Jules will also be hitting the dancefloor. The Red Dwarf star said he is thrilled to be taking part in the BBC show.

Joining Joe, Katie and Danny will be popstar Faye Tozer. The Steps member said being part of Strictly is a dream come true: “I’m going to relish every moment.”

Strictly will continue to reveal more contestants in the coming weeks. Rumour has it the launch show will air on Saturday, September 1.

We are so excited for the show to return to our screens!
