Joe Sugg, 28, and Dianne Buswell, 30, have announced that they will be sadly postponing their tour dates for The Joe and Dianne Show. The couple, who met on Strictly Come Dancing in 2018, have been hard at work preparing for the production in recent months and sharing updates from rehearsals on social media.
However, Joe shared a statement in view of his five million Twitter followers yesterday afternoon explaining to fans that the show will be rescheduled due to government guidelines about the spread of the coronavirus.
In the statement, the pair admitted making the decision to delay their tour dates was “incredibly hard”.
Joe’s tweet read: “Following the recent guidelines from the government and after further discussions with the producer of our tour, we have decided that for the safety of all involved, in particular all the people coming to the shows, we will reschedule our UK tour to a later date.
“If you know us, you know that this was an incredibly hard decision to make.

“We have been working really hard on the show and it is going to be great, which makes this extra hard.”
It continued: “Rescheduling shows is the last thing we want to do, but these are strange times and we have to keep everyone safe.
“We are working to try and reschedule as quickly as possible so that people can exchange their tickets into new dates, but where that is not possible, refunds will be issued from your point of purchase.”
The tweet concluded by saying: “Venues and ticketing companies are working in difficult circumstances at the moment so please bear with them as they work through all of this.
Another added: “We love you guys!! We all truly understand and we know how much you’ve both worked on this tour and we’re sending so much love!! Cannot wait to see the show when it all gets rescheduled.”
A third fan commented: “Gutted for everyone involved, but this is the best decision at the moment I’m sure we’ll all enjoy the show, just at a later day when it’s safe.”
Joe’s girlfriend Dianne also shared the statement in view of her 159,000 Twitter followers.
