Joe Sugg on when he knew he wanted to date Diane Buswell

The 30-year-old YouTube star was runner up on the 2019 series of the BBC ballroom competition alongside professional Dianne Buswell,33, and although the pair ended up in a relationship after their time on the show, Joe admitted that there was no initial "spark" when they first met.

He said: "No, [there was no instant spark]. I'm a professional and so is Dianne and just wanted to learn to dance, and as soon as I had that first session with Dianne and the buzz of that first Saturday night, I didn't want it to end. I didn't want to miss out on the party. That's the worst FOMO you can imagine. It wasn't until afterwards that I thought 'Oh, I really miss your company.'"

The West End star - who is the brother of fellow YouTuber sensation Zoella - also made a memorable appearance on a celebrity version of 'The Great British Bake Off' and fainted after cutting his finger and joked that he has "gone down in meme history" as a result.

He told the Metro newspaper's SixtySeconds column: "I've gone down in meme history! These British meme compilations often involve the guy from 'Come Dine With Me' putting the whole whisk in his mouth, then the guy with a Greggs plastic bag when he's being interviewed, then me fainting and James Blunt going 'Oh dear...' They checked I was OK with it going out and I said they had to keep it in. It was a charity show and it was going to get more people watching."
