There's no denying that Dianne has a close bond with her brother. Both Andrew and Mel flew from Australia over the summer to spend some quality time with Dianne and her boyfriend Joe Sugg. The two couples drove to Brighton, where they visited the Upside Down House attraction and enjoyed a stroll on the iconic pier. "Soooo the Broski is here and it was the 1st day of many fun-filled adventures," wrote Dianne at the time.

Meanwhile, the announcement comes a week after Dianne and her celebrity dance partner Dev Griffin were voted off from this year's Strictly. Their exit came as a big shock to fans after the pair wowed the judges with their impressive routines week after week. The pro dancer has since been keeping busy following her departure from the competition, adding more content to her YouTube channel. On Sunday, she surprised fans by showing off a completely different look, which saw her rock a short red bob. The Australian beauty asked her followers whether she should get the chop or not.
