The post came after the pair were photographer leaving the Strictly final after party together late on Saturday night. Joe had previously praised Dianne in clips shown before the winner was announced, saying: "Dianne on this show has been... everything. She's got a great sense of humour. My stomach actually hurts. For me, that's what has made the show so special." Dianne replied: "He's so genuine. He puts 1000% into everything. I couldn't have picked a better partner."
