OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE

BBC Radio 1
Before Strictly Come Dancing, Dianne was a full-time professional hairdresser and for her new podcast she’ll be going back to her roots as she invites some famous faces to join her in a virtual salon.
Over 12 weekly episodes, Di will have a number of celebrity guests look back at their hairstyles throughout the years, before embarking on a new ‘do. Just like a regular trip to the hairdresser, Dianne’s virtual cutting room will have hair defining moments and the typical chit chat with guests about their lives.
Guests include Joe Sugg, Talia Mar, AJ Odudu, Mary Fitzgerald (Selling Sunset), Mother Pukka, James McVey (The Vamps), Blu Hydrangea (RuPaul’s Drag Race), Megan Crabbe, Charlie Craggs, Russell Kane, Jayde Adams and Laura Adlington (Great British Bake Off).
Whether they’re in need of some expert hairdresser tips to try a new colour, assistance getting ready for a virtual date or the skills to style a new wig - Di is here to help!
Dianne says: “I am so excited to be launching my very own podcast with BBC Radio 1, Di’s Salon! I will be inviting celebrities to join me in the cutting room for a chat and a new ‘do - everyone knows that you do all your best talking with your hairdresser. Bring on the hair dye, kirby grips, hairspray and wigs!”
Due to current circumstances, the podcast has been recorded remotely. Each guest will be sent a DIY kit which includes the equipment required for their chosen look. During the podcast Di will talk them through their desired style.
Di's Salon with Dianne Buswell is produced by Katrina Bell, BBC Studios TalentWorks and Laura Amure & Joe Evans, BBC Studios Music & Entertainment, for BBC Sounds. It was commissioned for BBC Sounds by Radio 1 Commissioning Executive Louise Kattenhorn.
