Dianne Buswell debuted what might be her shortest hair yet on Wednesday evening, and the Strictly star chopped off her red locks for a very important cause. Taking to Instagram, Dianne shared a photo of herself laying down on the wooden floors of her home, with her now much-shorter hair on show. 

As for the bits of hair that had been cut off, the professional dancer had placed them around her head so that they spelled out: "Dancers against racism." Fans were taken aback by Dianne's post, and took to the comment section of her photo to say so. "Such a powerful message and so creative," wrote one. "I love this! So powerful and creative," another noted, while many more simply left heart emojis.
