The couple confirmed their romance after the final

After weeks of rumours that they had found love on the dance floor, Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell finally confirmed their romance after missing out on grabbing the Glitterball trophy.

Now, Joe’s gran has revealed it’s serious and her grandson is “head over heels” for his Strictly Come Dancing dance partner.

The 27-year-old’s gran Phyllis Sugg, 95, watched Joe perform in Blackpool and insists she knew there was a spark between him and Dianne, 29, the moment she saw them dance together.

She told MailOnline: “I may be 95 but I could see that twinkle in his eye – and the way they looked at each other.

“He brought Dianne over to meet me too and that’s a sign that there is romance in the air. She seemed like a lovely girl – I think he might be head over heels.”

Phyllis also thinks the YouTube star gets his dancing ability from her.

She added: “He’s never walked on a dance floor before, let alone actually danced on one. I’m so proud of him.”
