Strictly Come Dancing pro Dianne Buswell is known for her trademark bright red hair, which she had dyed ever since joining the BBC dance show in 2017, but before that she looked very different.

The 31-year-old has shared some throwback video of her rocking mousy brown hair and we can’t believe how different she looks.

Dianne shared a clip of her with some friends in New York, including fellow Strictly star Gorka Marquez, with her brunette locks on full display.

The Aussie dancer, who is also a trained hairdresser, added the caption, “OMG my crew this came up on my timeline, the good old days!!! Miss you all so much.

“My hair and natural tan!!!"

This isn’t the only time Dianne has showed off an altered look as another throwback posted earlier this year shows her looking completely different once again.

Back in July she shared a snap of herself with blonde, tasselled hair and a sweeping side fringe. Is there any look she can’t pull off?

Dianne was recently eliminated from the current series of Strictly alongside her celebrity dance partner Max George from The Wanted and faced death threats during her time in the competition when she was falsely accused of cheating on her boyfriend Joe Sugg.

Strictly bosses were reportedly forced to ramp up security when so-called fans of the YouTuber, who met Dianne on the 2018 series of the show, claimed to be at the apartment block where she and Max were staying.

Strictly curse? HRVY begs Maisie Smith to 'stop flirting' with him 👀

Although there was no truth to rumours that Max and Dianne were having an affair, it’s claimed that The Wanted star’s other half Stacey Giggs laid down the law so that their relationship didn’t fall victim to the Strictly curse.

A Strictly insider revealed, “Max is a terrible flirt and very cheeky. There is definite chemistry between him and Dianne, but she is a total professional.

“Stacey apparently read Max the riot act before he went on the show and has now given him another warning, so he knows he can’t cross the line. Max is just a very lovable guy and women are drawn to him. He’s got that charm.”

But despite Stacey’s concerns, it appears she has nothing to worry about, as the source added to new! magazine, “Doing this show is going to put pressure on any relationship and Stacey is aware of that. Max has assured her he’ll behave himself and that she’s got nothing to worry about and she believes him. He's besotted by her.”
