Strictly Come Dancing star Dianne Buswell was jumping for joy after coming out of isolation, so much so she embraced tree-hugging and some homemade porridge.

The Aussie pro dancer spent 14 days cooped up in a hotel room so she could reunite with her relatives Down Under.

And the 32-year-old couldn’t contain her excitement as she shared the news with her 267k YouTube subscribers.

“It’s Coronation Day,” she joked, referencing the Disney hit movie Frozen. “Guys, guys, I had to Vlog this day.

“I’m ready to escape the room. I’m ready to get O.U.T. I’m getting ready to leave this building!”

Over 105k people watched Dianne’s video and her admirers saluted her for surviving such a long stint on her own in a hotel room.

The 31min video saw Dianne counting down the hours for her release before finally being reunited with her family, with plenty of fun had in her first 24 hours of freedom.

And once she'd "escaped" the star enjoyed plenty of quality time with her mum and dad, including seeing her string of aunties, uncles and cousins.

“It feels so good to getting washed and ready, but to actually be knowing you’re going into the outside world is pretty darn incredible,” admitted Dianne, before finally being allowed out of her room.

And prior to finally breaking free, Dianne also shared a touching letter which had been slipped under her hotel at the end of her lengthy stay.
