Strictly star Joe Sugg made his presenting debut on The One Show on Friday night, and even deftly dealt with a suggestion of his future engagement to Dianne Buswell during the episode. Guest Matthew Morrison explained the romantic story behind his own engagement, and after hearing the star-studded tale - which involved Elton John making the announcement and a serenading song from Chris Martin - Alex said: "You and Dianne now, you need to go. You need to aim for Coldplay," with Matthew adding: "No pressure." Joe simply joked: "Set the bar there!"

Joe, who seems to be making the move into television presenting, also posted on his Instagram Story to reveal how nervous he was to front the show. "What an experience! Anything live is always quite nerve wracking but that's all part of the fun and @alexjonesthompson is such a pro and made me feel so at ease," he said.
