Strictly Come Dancing professional Dianne Buswell met her sweetheart Joe Sugg when the duo were paired together on the show in 2018. 

Nearly five years on, the lovebirds share a stunning £3.5 million seaside bolthole in Brighton together, but they didn't always own the lavish property. 

During their first years of dating, the pair lived together in Joe's bachelor pad - a modern London flat which he bought in 2016. The fabulous space came complete with jaw-dropping rooftop and their own foosball table.

While living in London, the duo also had a special Strictly neighbour too – Dr. Ranj, who competed alongside Joe on the show in 2018!

Joe shared this photo on the proud day he first moved into his home, offering a glimpse at his contemporary open plan kitchen. The room had grey glossy cabinets and dark wooden flooring, with white worktops and built-in appliances. Floor-to-ceiling windows appeared to lead out to a garden/ terrace, and gave the added benefit of filling the space with natural light.

Joe hosted his fellow Strictly contestants and other friends at his previous home to celebrate his 27th birthday. We don’t know what we love more – his modern kitchen or his Strictly-themed cake!

Many of Joe's videos were filmed from his bedroom. The room had an upholstered bed with plain white bedding, and two striking industrial-style lamps placed on bedside tables at either side.

Joe shared a photo of Dianne enjoying her time off from Strictly rehearsals on their rooftop during the coronavirus pandemic. It boasted views across the whole of London, as well as an outdoor eating area and bean bags for the couple to sit on.

The rooftop also had a large egg chair where the Strictly stars previously posed for a snap, while this post revealed that the apartment has floor-to-ceiling glass windows surrounding the open-plan kitchen and living area.

The kitchen and living room area were open-plan and appeared to have a wraparound garden/ terrace. The star had designed the space for entertaining, with large sofas and his foosball table taking pride of place.

A grey corner sofa had been topped with red scatter cushions, while floor-length grey curtains cover the patio doors. Rather than opting for a wall-mounted TV, Joe went one step further, setting up a home cinema with projector mounted on the ceiling.

The couple had not one, but two, Strictly glitter balls to go on display in their home after winning the Strictly Come Dancing live tour at the beginning of 2019.

A set of wooden and glass double doors led through to the hallway, which had a staircase featuring under-stair lighting, and led through to a number of other rooms.
