Joe Sugg has revealed the sweet way he's been remembering his summer holiday with girlfriend Dianne Buswell. The couple, who fell in love when they were paired on Strictly Come Dancing in 2018, have been forced to live apart due to the BBC One show's strict 'bubble' rules, and Joe has naturally been missing his girlfriend.

The YouTube star explained he had found a special way to treasure their staycation memories; using a disposable camera so he can enjoy looking at the photographs rather than relying on digital versions.

Joe shared two never-before-seen snaps from their travels, admitting they were his new favourite photographs.

"The UK has been amazing to me and Strictly is my home away from home, because there is such a family vibe," she said.

"That's really helped me a lot and since meeting Joe, I have his family here who really make me feel like I have my own family."
