A new BBC Radio 1 podcast, Di’s Salon with Dianne Buswell, will launch on January 21st on BBC Sounds.
Before Strictly Come Dancing, Buswell 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, Buswell will have a number of celebrity guests look back at their hairstyles throughout the years, before embarking on a new hair-do. 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).
Buswell said: “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.”
