The 30-year-old was inspired by her boyfriend Joe Sugg to make a foray into vlogging in March. As well as launching her personal channel, Dianne has also joined forces with Joe to launch their own cooking channel, In the Pan with Joe and Dianne, which has close to 250,000 subscribers. Dianne appears to have won viewers over with her videos, which include everything from pranks to makeup tutorials and the secrets behind her famous red hair.

It has been almost a year since Dianne confirmed her relationship with Joe, after the pair reached the final of Strictly alongside Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton, plus Faye Tozer and Giovanni Pernice. The couple's relationship appears to have gone from strength-to-strength in the past 12 months, with Joe asking Dianne to move in with him in August, and supporting his girlfriend after her shock exit from Strictly in October. The pair will be back on our screens on Christmas Day, after reuniting on the dancefloor for the Strictly Christmas special.
