The close friends appeared to be in good form as they laughed and joked together, while Bobby sweetly placed his hand on Dianne’s back at one point.

The former dance partners came in second place in the Strictly Come Dancing final last month, losing out on the glitterball to Ellie Leach and Vito Coppola.

Since the series ended, Dianne – who is dating YouTuber Joe Sugg – has revealed her surprising career plans as she said she has ‘other ambitions’.

Speaking to Heat magazine, the Australian star revealed that she is keen to give acting ago.

She said: ‘It’ll be my eighth year of Strictly next year and I’ve been so lucky with all my partners. They’ve all brought something different, and you learn a lot from each person.

‘But I have other ambitions, too. I’ve always wanted to dip into acting, so I’d like to try and explore that.’ 

Dianne is a woman of many talents, having transitioning to dancing from hairdressing while she also designs a casual clothing range, Buswellness.
