Strictly Come Dancing star Dianne Buswell is known for her fiery red hair (and incredible dancing skills), and looks utterly unrecognisable in a throwback pic she shared with fans.
We all know Dianne’s unique hair isn’t natural, but it’s become such a trademark of hers over the years that it’s almost impossible to imagine her without it.
If anyone was holding onto the massive improbability that Dianne’s bright locks are in fact au naturel, the dancer shattered those dreams during a Q&A with her over 860,000 followers yesterday.
Taking to Instagram Stories and urging her fans to ‘make it fun’, Dianne answered questions on everything from charity shop hauls to makeup, to hanging out with The Inbetweeners star James Buckley and his wife, fellow actor Clair.
Eventually however, the topic turned to hair.
One fan first asked: ‘When was the last time your hair wasn’t red and what did it look like?’, to which Dianne responded with a photo of herself with bright orange locks and a full fringe.
A bit of a change, sure, but a similar shade and just as unique as before.
Next, however, someone asked: ‘What colour is your natural hair?’
Dianne shared a smiling school photo of herself at around 12 years of age, with her natural – dark brown – hair.
Again, we all knew the bright red wasn’t natural, and most schools have rules around not letting students dye their hair mad colours, but we reckon the throwback made more than a few fans do a double take.
The dancer has been keeping busy with her popular YouTube channel and her Instagram page focused on wellness in recent weeks after leaving this series of Strictly Come Dancing.
The dancer had been partnered with comedian Robert Webb, 49, and the pair were proving popular among judges and the public.
Their time was cut short, however, when Robert was advised by his doctor to pull out after suffering worrying symptoms two years after undergoing emergency open heart surgery.
In a statement upon leaving the show, the Peep Show actor said he was ‘proud of the three dances that Dianne Buswell and I managed to perform and deeply regret having to let her down like this’.
Dianne however, despite being disappointed, was firmly behind Robert as he stepped down, saying: ‘Robert’s health is by far the most important part in all of this and I’m wishing him a speedy recovery.
‘Thank you to everybody who supported us this series it means the absolute world.
‘You will still see flashes of my red hair in the background as I’ll be there cheering on all the amazing couples.’
