This comes after Dianne’s ex Anthony slammed claims their relationship fell victim to the Strictly curse, after they ended their 10-month romance. 

The Emmerdale actor, 34, revealed he’s ‘rooting for her and Joe’ during their stint on the BBC competition series, and insisted he and his ex are ‘still really good friends’.

In an interview with Daily Star, the soap star denied the Strictly curse claims as he revealed why he split from the 29-year-old: 

‘We’re still really good friends – it’s just distance played a part. There were all these rumours about the ‘Strictly’ curse but it wasn’t that.’

Admitting that there’s no bad blood between the pair, he added: ‘I’m actually rooting for Joe and Dianne. They’re doing absolutely amazing in strictly and I still think the world of the girl. ‘We were really close, it just wasn’t meant to be.’
