After the scandalous pictures that emerged of Strictly Come Dancing contestants Seann Walsh and Katya Jones kissing, we didn't think we'd see another couple fall victim to the Strictly curse in the same season. But we were wrong...

It's been revealed by The Sun that dancing couple Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell shared a secret kiss after a boozy night out three weeks ago, before she had broken up with her then-boyfriend and actor Anthony Quinlan.

The pro dancer split from the Emerdale actor last week and many are speculating that it's because of her growing feelings for her dance partner Joe. Uh oh.

A source told The Sun: “Joe and Dianne had chemistry from day one rehearsals.

“In September the cast and crew went out for a few drinks at London’s Reign club after a Julien Macdonald fashion show.

“Joe and Dianne were flirting and laughing all night, and were the talk of the club. They were seen having a quick kiss, and ended up leaving together.”

Showing his admiration for Dianne, Joe also filmed a video for his YouTube channel, documenting their trip to Thorpe Park. In the 11-minute video Joe told Dianne: “You never cease to amaze me.”

After news of Dianne and Anthony's split broke, Anthony told The Sun, "It’s just the long distance thing was quite taxing for us both. But we are still good friends and, like I said, these things happen day-to-day.

"It is taxing when you’ve got a distance between each other. When we were together we had a great time," and added of the rumours around Joe and Dianne, "People are always going to speculate, that’s certainly out of my hands - there’s nothing I can do about that." Awww.
