Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer Dianne Buswell has shared an important message with her fans on social media after an emotional live show at the weekend.

Posting on her Instagram Stories, the Australian dancer uploaded a picture of a graphic which was encouraging people to be kind. The caption read: "Why you should be kind to people," with a small dot indicating how little you know about what someone is going through in their personal life. Dianne also accompanied the photo with a red love heart.

Although the dancer, who is paired with model and EastEnders actor Bobby Brazier for this year's series of the Latin and Ballroom competition, didn't explicitly reveal what the picture was in reference to, the post comes shortly after a particularly emotional weekend and live show.

Week four of the competition saw Dianne and Bobby take on the Tango to David Bowie's Fashion. But after the pair performed their routine, fans noticed that they were both visibly emotional while chatting with host Claudia Winkleman.

When asked by Claudia how the dancers felt about closing the show, Bobby revealed: "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 as she held back tears.
