KATE THORNTON: Was there a part of you that was just thinking you were a bit punch drunk on the old "Strictly" glitter ball impact? Because there was not only you and Dianne that fell in love on that series, but you went all the way to the finals with Stacey Dooley and Kevin, who also had a similar experience [INAUDIBLE] together on the show.

JOE SUGG: Yeah. No, do you know what? I think it was one of those things where on that show you see-- I think you see the best in someone and the worst in someone. Because especially if you get to those later stages you're spending 12-hour days. It is very intense.

And you fall out-- like we fell out plenty of times, I'm sure. Every week we're like, oh, we're going home. Cause I always felt like I needed to make her proud. And I'm not a natural dancer. I can't dance so I had to purely rely on Dianne to teach me.

And it wasn't until after the show it's like, you think if that's what someone's worst is in the grand scheme of things, that's nothing. And yeah, it wasn't until afterwards that you had time to put all those thoughts together and express our feelings, I guess.
