It is said that after she fell, BBC staff came rushing to her aid in the rehearsal room after fearing she had suffered a concussion.

The flame-haired beauty was left groggy following the slip, with bosses quickly taking her to the hospital. 

Reports state that though Dianne carefully picked herself up from then fall, witnesses claim that it was clear she wasn’t ‘quite right’. 

Dianne made a swift recovery from the horror fall, with the dancer taking to Instagram on Friday to share her excitement about Saturday’s Movie Week show.

The source said: ‘He was praying that there was no serious damage — the worst case scenario was that she had some internal head injuries.’  

They added that Dianne had ‘plunged a long way’, with Dev ‘insisting’ that she go to hospital, with the star left in ‘total shock’.

Dianne was diagnosed with whiplash at North London’s Barnet Hospital, before later being sent home. 

Amid the drama, caring Dianne was apparently the one who was concerned for Dev, after he was left ‘distraught’ by the whole thing.

The dancer, who is dating her partner from last year Joe Sugg, tried to make him feel better by stating that the daring life was ‘her idea’. 

The YouTube star was reportedly ‘alarmed’ after hearing news of his girlfriend’s accident. 

Dianna and Dev returned to training on Friday, with producers apparently keeping a close eye on the dancer so as to watch for any signs of delayed reaction.

The pair are expected to dance when Strictly Come Dancing returns Saturday at 7.10pm on BBC One.
