She's now a fully-fledged social media star, so it's no wonder Dianne Buswell suffers for her art. The Strictly Come Dancing pro revealed the painful lengths she goes to in order to make enjoyable content for her followers – and it doesn't look fun. Sharing a video on Instagram, the pro dancer suffered an embarrassing fall whilst trying to film a TikTok video to Christina Aguilera's hit Genie in a Bottle. Standing on the end of a bed, Dianne playfully pretended to climb into a lamp, when in reality she was standing on a stool hidden behind it. But as she writhed about, cheekily smiling to the camera, she suddenly lost her balance and crashed down on the ground – hard!

Sharing the moment on her Instagram Stories, she captioned the clip: "I'm alive, don't worry. Boy did it hurt though." In the next clip, she revealed her injuries, a bruise on her shin and a painful-looking graze on her ankle. Talking over the video, she said: "So there are the war wounds from my last TikTok. I have like an instant bruise here, a little bit of skin's come off and that's going to be a massive bruise right here… Wow, Dianne!"

That looks painful!

She later shared the video as a post on her page, captioning it: "It’s ok we can all laugh about it! I am alive and well! This is such a Dianne thing to do, maybe I should leave the genie part to @dev." Dev Griffin was Dianne's partner in Strictly 2019 and one of their most memorable performances was when the Radio 1 DJ dressed-up as the genie from Aladdin, complete with blue body paint!

Very surreal moment but so exciting. Get your tickets now!"
