Dianne revealed that she wore the skirt to her Strictly Come Dancing interview, hilariously adding that she had only bought it the morning of her life-changing meeting, and even changed into it in the shopping centre bathrooms!

Dianne shared the story on Instagram 

The Australian dancer explained: "Fun little fact for you all: I got this skirt the morning of my Strictly Come Dancing interview. 

"I got changed in the shopping centre toilet into my new outfit and went over for my interview. So now I class this skirt as my lucky skirt. Obvs I didn’t wear it with this top."

If Dianne has got you craving gingham, Ganni's sweet gingham crêpe mini skirt is a perfect replica, and is ideal for balmy and chillier days alike.

Pair with a crisp white T-shirt and slides when the mercury rises, and once it drops come autumn pop a pair of black tights and white trainers beneath it and earn yourself some major cool points.

The 31-year-old often shares amazing throwback photos with her social media followers, and earlier in August, shocked fans when she uploaded a photo of herself with brown hair!

Simply captioned: "Major throwback," Dianne could be seen posing alongside two friends, and her hair is a dark shade of brown.

Dressed in a fitted black denim dress and smiling from ear to ear, Dianne looked so different!
