Strictly’s Neil Jones teases Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell’s ‘engagement’ – DigitalSpy.com
15 March 2019 MUSIC
Strictly Come Dancing professional Neil Jones appeared to have a lot of fun winding up fans of Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell last night, and we basically have the Facebook outage to thank.
In case you somehow managed to miss it, on Wednesday (March 13) Facebook suffered global outages, meaning users of Facebook and its other apps Instagram and WhatsApp had difficulties logging on and using the services.
Twitter was fine though, as was Instagram in some parts of the world – a fact that Neil Jones took full advantage of, considering he was in Hong Kong when this all kicked off.
With many of his UK fans and followers unable to access Instagram, Neil had a lot of fun teasing fans of the reality show by sharing that they were missing out on some huge news being announced on Joe Sugg’s Instagram Stories.
“When my IG, Facebook and WhatsApp are all working and wow I think it’s the best content I’ve ever seen on @Joe_Sugg stories u should really check it out,” he posted, before cheekily adding: “Ohhhhh yeah right u can’t #instagramisdown.”
With the game now well and truly set up, Neil later launched into dropping some huge hints that the pair were about to get engaged, sharing that Joe “said something about bells” and that he keeps talking about “getting down on one knee”.
“It’s hard to understand but something about having a big surprise for @dbuzz6589 but first he needs to speak to her dad and he said something about bells,” Neil tweeted.
“I think @Joe_Sugg might be buying some knee pads as he keeps talking about getting on one knee.”
Of course, if Joe was planning a surprise for Dianne, then Neil’s only gone and ruined it, but considering that neither Joe nor Dianne have publicly confirmed Neil’s sharing of their happy news, we’re going to go ahead and call it one big joke for now.
Joe and Dianne met when they were partnered up for the 2018 series of Strictly Come Dancing, with the couple confirming their relationship in December.
Back in January, Joe shut down engagement rumours, sharing that he had no plans to pop the question to Dianne any time soon.
“Absolutely not. We haven’t thought that much into the future,” he said at the time. “We’re just taking everything as it comes.”
Neil and Dianne have both recently been confirmed as part of the Strictly Come Dancing 2019 professional dancer line-up, while Neil recently explained why he decided to forgive his wife Katya Jones after she was pictured kissing her dance partner Seann Walsh last year.
