The professional dancer will want to spend Christmas with her family, as she has not been able to for the last two years. In 2020 the world went through lockdown periods, while in 2021 she contracted COVID-19 while vacationing with Joe in Lapland.
It’s not uncommon for Dianne to fly to Australia alone, and the couple separated for their first Christmas together in 2018what happened shortly after they first met.
Dianne went home for the holidays
During her absence, Dianne shared how she missed her then-new boyfriend, saying: “I honestly feel so fortunate to be in Australia with the best family any girl could ask for and I have a very special one Human waiting for me I’m returning to the UK @joe_sugg. I hope everyone out there is having the most amazing Christmases spent with their loved ones and the best time of sending joy and happiness to you all.
The couple even spent time apart last year when Dianne traveled home alone.
