Re-posting a screenshot of their comment, which was shared on that evening's episode of It Takes Two, the glamorous redhead was quick to respond to the viewer's opinion

Dianne responded with a red heart emoji as well as the caption: "It's the truth tho!!" 

The dance professional and her celebrity partner have sparked rumours about their relationship over the last few weeks, especially since their Argentine Tango on Saturday night, which saw some viewers convinced the pair almost kissed at the end of the routine.

But Dianne shut down speculation about any romance between her and Bobby during an appearance on Tuesday's Good Morning Britain. Host Susanna Reid addressed the rumours as she spoke about the duo's epic performance. 

"There's nothing untoward going on here, it's just the dancing," said the journalist, prompting Dianne, 34, to confirm that there's no romantic connection between herself and Bobby. "Exactly, it is," the dancer said. "I think the thing that I love so much about dancing is being able to tell a story. It's like acting, isn't it?" she asked.

The Australian added: "We obviously did the dance the correct way if that's what's being said because that is the Argentine Tango." Since Saturday's show, fans have been quick to defend the pair amidst the romance rumours. 

One person wrote on social media. "Isn't dancing about telling a story and acting? And that's exactly what they're doing and must be doing it extremely well if you're reading more into it."

A second added: "Can people stop repeatedly commenting on their partnership please? It makes me feel uncomfortable for them so I can't imagine how it's making Dianne and Bobby feel…" 

Dianne and Bobby have clearly formed a close bond over the past few weeks, and have been there for each other through the highs and lows of the competition.

Last month, the pair admitted that it had been an emotional week, and Dianne thanked the EastEnders star for his support. When asked by Claudia Winkleman how it felt to close the show with their electric Tango, Bobby said: "Just emotional. It's been so, so emotional all week."

Dianne added: "It was really difficult. I pushed you musically. That song is not easy to hear and you worked so hard to be able to hear the music. But he's just been a massive rock this week, so thank you," she added, looking visibly teary.
