Strictly Come Dancing star Dianne Buswell has landed a brand new podcast with the BBC, called Di’s Salon.
Dianne will draw on her previous experience as a hairdresser before her time as a professional dancer, welcoming celebrity guests into a ‘virtual salon’ on the new show.
The format will invite stars to look back at their hairstyles from years gone by, before fixing them up with a new ‘do.
The 12 weekly episodes will see her chat to guests Joe Sugg, Talia Mar, AJ Odudu, Selling Sunset’s Mary Fitzgerald, Mother Pukka, James McVey, RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Blu Hydrangea, Megan Crabbe, Charlie Craggs, Russell Kane, Jayde Adams and Great British Bake Off’s Laura Adlington.
The show is being recorded remotely, so guests will be sent DIY hair styling products to try their hand at experimental new styles.
Dianne says: ‘I am so excited to be launching my very own podcast with BBC Radio 1, Di’s Salon! I will be inviting celebrities to join me in the cutting room for a chat and a new ‘do – everyone knows that you do all your best talking with your hairdresser. Bring on the hair dye, kirby grips, hairspray and wigs!’
The new series Di’s Salon is set to arrive on January 21.
Dianne, who is known for her striking red hair, has been a professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing since 2017.
The 31-year-old reached the final of the BBC show in 2018 with her celebrity partner Joe Sugg.
