Strictly star Dianne Buswell looked almost unrecognisable at the weekend as she took to the dance floor alongside her celebrity dance partner, Bobby Brazier.

Taking to her Instagram grid on Sunday, the Aussie dancer, 34, posted a string of glamorous snapshots giving centre stage to her luscious locks. Eschewing her trademark flaming red tresses, Dianne looked wildly different thanks to an expertly styled brunette wig which had fans doing a double take.

The professional dancer donned the glossy, chocolate-hued wig for her spectacular routine which saw her and her dance partner Bobby Brazier perform a sensational Samba to Young Hearts Run Free from Baz Luhrmann’s hit film Romeo and Juliet.

Alongside the gorgeous pictures, Dianne quipped: "Who's this girl in my camera roll?? brunette buswell !??".

The duo are totally smitten

Back in September, the Strictly pro took to Instagram to pay tribute to her beau and to mark five years since their pairing on the hit BBC show.

She uploaded two photos of the couple, with their heads together and smiling, taken in 2018 and 2023, respectively.

Another fan penned: "I'm never gonna forget Strictly 2018, my fav season watching you two grow and make it all the way to the final was so special. I cannot believe it's now half a decade ago. Like where's the time gone…"

Away from the spotlight, the happy couple have been going from strength to strength. Taking things to the next level, the smitten couple recently sold their gorgeous home in Surrey and relocated to Brighton where they now live in a luxurious property complete with its own swimming pool and gym.
