Ultimately, the Strictly Come Dancing professionals are all athletes and they have the most incredible bodies. From their toned legs to their abs of steel, it's hard not to be amazed by their bikini figures. We take a look at their best photos and their exercise secrets...

 

Dianne Buswell’s body

 

Dianne Buswell has one hell of an amazing figure. The 30-year-old professional dancer is from Australia so being a beach babe is second nature.

She recently admitted that as a performer, it's not unusual to have body insecurities: "100 per cent growing up, you have those issues ... I think as a dancer you are always wanting to look your best, like in an outfit, you want an outfit to look the best it can on you, meaning weight is a huge one for a lot of dancers…you are always wanting to look better, look thinner".

The dancer, who is dating her previous celebrity dance partner Joe Sugg, revealed: "As you grow up and you get older, you realise that you just have to be comfortable in your own skin, in your own body and actually that looks more beautiful than being a size four. You can be whatever size and still look beautiful if you are radiating from the inside out, then people are going to think 'oh she looks gorgeous'."

On the subject of social media, she said: "I try and keep my pictures as natural as possible and try not to use too many filters.”
