Strictly's Dianne Buswell cuddles up to star partner Max George after rejection

Strictly stars Max George and Dianne Buswell proved themselves to be firm friends as they shared a cuddle days after their shock elimination.

The Wanted singer, 32, landed in the bottom two with Maisie, 20, with both Craig Revel Horwood and Anton Du Beke voting to keep the EastEnders star in the competition - while head judge Shirley would have voted for Max.
