Strictly Come Dancing's Dianne Buswell has admitted that she had doubts when she first met her partner Bobby Brazier.
The 20-year-old EastEnders actor and professional dancer, 34, have been paired together in the latest series of the BBC dance competition. Ahead of Halloween week, they appeared on Strictly's It Takes Two to tease what fans can expect from their next routine and opened up about their bond with host Janette Manrara.
During their chat of the live TV show, Dianne revealed that she did have concerns when she first learned that she'd been coupled up with model Bobby. She said: "I'm so proud of him. I must admit when I first saw him I thought this might be tough" and a confused Bobby interrupted asking: "Why?"

"You're so tall and you've never danced before so I thought they could be harder than I think but he's got such a good little brain on him he just absorbs everything I tell him and sometimes I only have to tell him something once and it just locks in."
Bobby and Dianne will take on the Cha-cha-cha on Saturday (October 28) night to Come-On-a-My House by Della Reese and fans will have to want and see if their performance will be enough to kept them out of the dreaded dance-off.
It comes after the pair didn't hold back expressing their affection for one another during their joint appearance on ITV's Lorraine. As they talked about the importance of gelling with their dance partners, Bobby said: "We spend so much time together, literally all day every day we are together. " Dianne, who is in a relationship with YourTuber Joe Sugg, added: "If we didn't like each other, that would be an issue."
Laughing, Bobby teased that he wasn't always that keen on his dance partner. "There are times when I do not like you, and there are times when I love you," he said. Christine Lampard, who was filling in for regular host Lorraine Kelly on the programme, asked if that was about Dianne cracking the whip and making him rehearse so much. Looking bashful, the actor replied: "Yeah sometimes!"

The pair also said they were starting to understand each other more as the contest goes on and Bobby suggested that they were "rubbing off on each other" in certain ways. He also said that he was improving when it came to working a little harder.
Bobby is one of the favourites to win Strictly this year. So far he and Dianne have been turning in good scores each week. Judges Shirley Ballas. Motsi Mabuse, Craig Revel Horwood and Anton Du Beke gave them 32 out of a possible 40 points for their Viennese Waltz recently.
