Strictly’s Dianne Buswell has thanked her fans for their support after she was hit with cruel messages following unfounded claims she’s cheating on her boyfriend Joe Sugg with her dance partner Max George.
The 31-year-old professional dancer, who made her debut with The Wanted singer on Saturday, has been targeted by trolls who made allegations on social media.
Taking to Twitter on Sunday, the professional dancer thanked her followers for sending her messages of support.
‘Awww your all so supportive thank you so much I am reading all your lovely tweets now xxxx,’ she tweeted.
Dianne’s followers were quick to comment on the tweet, with many sending her ‘love’ and ‘happiness’.
One commented: ‘You deserve all the love and happiness in the world! you are such a kind, humble human being and we will always support you, thank you for being the best role model to us all! sending all the love <33.’
Another tweeted: ‘so much love for you!! we’ve missed seeing you on strictly so much, yesterday was the best – we all needed a bit of dbuzz back in out lives.’
While one added: ‘You deserve all the love in the world you are truly the best! such a kind-hearted human we couldn’t be more appreciative or thankful for you.’
After Max and Dianne’s performance on Saturday night, in one now-deleted tweet, one of Joe’s ‘fans’ claimed to be at the apartment block where Dianne and Max are living for the duration of the series, it ended with the chilling words: ‘This will be the end for Dianne.’
‘This was truly chilling — because someone claimed to be waiting for Dianne at a certain address,’ an insider said.
‘Producers have taken action, along with security teams, and reassured the cast that their safety is paramount.’
The source continued to The Sun: ‘Sadly, death threats to cast members are something producers have to deal with as the profile of their talent is sky-high.
‘There is a strong security presence at the studios in Elstree, even with less people coming and going due to the Covid restrictions. They might now set up patrols near their accommodation too.’
A BBC spokesman told the publication: ‘We take security and the safety of our cast and crew very seriously.
‘All our security arrangements are reviewed and adjusted accordingly for every live show.’
Dianne and Joe first met on Strictly Come Dancing in 2018 and were paired up together.
They officially confirmed their relationship in December 2018, not long after leaving the competition in second place.
Metro.co.uk has reached out to the BBC for comment.
Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 7.15pm on BBC One.
