It was a tough show for Strictly Come Dancing's Joe Sugg and girlfriend Dianne Buswell yesterday, as the 27-year-old accidentally dropped the pro-dancer during an animated routine on the tour.

In a video uploaded to social media by a fan, Joe can be seen doing a leap-frog over the Dianne's head, before going to grab her legs and throw her over his shoulder.

However, it all went slightly wrong, when Joe dropped Dianne's legs causing her to tumble to the ground in a heap.

Fans were quick to comment on the fall, as they voiced their concern.

But luckily Dianne didn't suffer too much pain, with the Australian beauty taking to Instagram moments later to reassure everyone that she was indeed fine.

Sharing a funny video to her Instagram story, as she wagged her finger to Lauren Poles' I Get Knocked Down, Di told her 700k followers, "Thanks for all your concern and love! I'm totes fine love you all. Let's go do our Charleston."

Despite not scooping the glitterball on the BBC dance show last year - after losing out to presenter Stacey Dooley -  Dianne and Joe have done pretty well on the tour.

Night after the night, the duo - who struck up a romance last year - have won hands down.

No wonder they're mourning it coming to an end soon.

Just hours after the dramatic fall, Dianne, 29, took to Instagram as she reflected on the past few months they've shared together since YouTube star Joe joined Strictly in September.

'Taking it all in with the boy that started this Strictly journey with no idea what ballroom or Latin dancing was to now going out in front of 10 thousand people at the 02 arena dancing like a pro!' she wrote.

'@joe_suggyou should be so so proud of yourself because I’m the proudest dance teacher ever 😊 i promise to still give you an hour ballroom lesson a week ❤️ so you can KEEP DANCING 🕺🏾💃'
