Strictly’s Tyler recalls ‘nerve-wrecking’ moment when Dianne ‘wasn’t breathing’

Strictly Come Dancing star Tyler West has opened up about the moment his professional partner Dianne Buswell "wasn't breathing".

The pair performed the Tango to the Doctor Who theme tune on Saturday (October 22) night.

They impressed judges and viewers with their routine and were left waiting the longest to find out if they'd made it through to next week.

Speaking to his Kiss FM co-stars Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiey on Monday (October 24), the DJ opened up about the antagonising wait to find out if you're in the dance-off.

He said: "It was honestly so nerve-wracking, they announced it in random order.

“Do you know what? I was actually holding up Dianne as well because she wasn’t breathing and also, I actually didn’t really understand the words that were being said, so I actually thought that we were in the dance off for a hot second."

"You know what it felt mad, I was just over moon because I feel like we’d done enough to leave it all on the dancefloor Saturday night, yeah it was just a bit nerve-wracking."

Radio presenter Tyler has recently opened up about training rehearsals with partner Dianne.

He told The Sun: "I've been kicked in my golden glitter balls so many times, I cannot tell you!

"You go through trials and tribulations, things are bruised that perhaps shouldn’t be, but it’s the dangers of doing Strictly.

"I’ve wrecked my body. I’m feeling the pressure."

Tyler booted Dianne out of the training studio for farting last week.

The dancing duo were practising in the studio when the red-headed beauty accidentally passed wind in front of Tyler.

The clip was caught on camera where Dianne let one slip and held her bottom in a panic.

After that scene, it then cut to Tyler handing Dianne her suitcase and sending it on her merry way out of the studios.
