In a separate upload, Diane shared a time-lapse video where she was seen wearing a white embroidered top. 

She brushed her freshly-dyed locks before she tied them up in a chic high ponytail complete with a turquoise hairband. 

The upload comes after it was reported that Strictly Come Dancing will be back with a bang this winter, with the popular ballroom show believed to be returning for a 13-show run.

The famous dancing competition’s annual trip to Blackpool is also on the schedule, after being scrapped last year in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

BBC bosses have been in talks with Strictly staff and professional dancers including Katya Jones, 31, ahead of its nineteenth season.

And earlier this year, Strictly announced its professional line-up for the 2021 series with reigning double champion Oti Mabuse returning to the show. 

The BBC confirmed the 16 dancers who will hit the dance floor this Autumn, with fan favourites such as Anton Du Beke and Johannes Radebe returning to centre stage.

It comes after it was reported that BBC bosses were ‘worried’ that Oti, 30, would leave the show after landing a new judging job on ITV’s The Masked Dancer.

But it’s now clear that Oti will be back in the ballroom when the new series kicks off in the autumn after being crowned the champion of the 2020 show with Bill Bailey following her 2019 win with Kelvin Fletcher.

While Anton, 54, is to continue his reign as Strictly Come Dancing’s longest-serving professional dancer by marking his 19th season on the show.    

Making up the female pros are Oti, Janette Manrara, Amy Dowden, Dianne, Karen Hauer, Katya, Luba Mushtuk, Nadiya Bychkova and Nancy Xu.

While Aljaž Škorjanec, Anton, Giovanni Pernice, Gorka Marquez, Graziano Di Prima, Johannes, 33, and Neil Jones make up the male pros.

Sarah James, Executive Producer of BBC Studios said of the news: ‘We are so thrilled to be welcoming back our incredible line-up of professional dancers for 2021. 

‘Their passion and dedication for Strictly shone through more than ever last year as they all sacrificed so much to deliver an unforgettable series during unprecedented and challenging times. 

‘With so much talent returning to the ballroom, the 2021 series promises more show-stopping choreography, memorable performances and world class dancing.’

There are normally a number of reserve dancers who perform in the group dances and step in if another pro is unwell or injured.
