Dianne Buswell has taken time away from the Strictly ballroom to enjoy some well-deserved family time down under this Christmas.

The pro dancer, 34, has been sharing updates of her time spent reuniting with family in her hometown of Bunbury in Western Australia with her vlogger and former Strictly contestant boyfriend Joe Sugg, 32.

In photos shared with her 1 million Instagram followers, the dancer was seen enjoying the Australian summer with Mia and Zofia looking totally relaxed laid out on the grass.

Mia and Zofia have been a common occurrence in Dianne's snaps from the trip. In a sweet carousel of photos shared earlier this week, Dianne showed time spent with her family enjoying a woodland picnic, as well as an adorable selfie with herself, Joe and Zofia snuggled up in the sun.
