However, fears they may have split emerged around Christmas when Aussie native Buswell travelled home to visit family while Sugg remained in the UK.
Speaking to The Sun, Buswell has now put to bed the rumours and assured fans they're doing just fine.
"It comes from a good place, but I go home and see my family and don't even worry about anything that's being said," she explained.
"I try not to look because it's very rare I get to see my family so I want to go and make the most of it and that's what I did."

She assured the pair were doing fine, with Sugg planning to visit the UK tour when his own work schedule allows him to.
The Strictly UK tour kicked off on Friday, January 20 at the Utilita Arena Birmingham, and will run through to February 12 where it'll end at OVO Hydro in Glasgow.
Buswell is performing on the tour with her 2022 celeb partner Tyler West.
They're joined by this year’s Strictly champions Hamza Yassin and his pro Jowita Przystal, as well as finalists Fleur East and Vito Coppola, Molly Rainford and Carlos Gu, and Helen Skelton - who is performing on the tour with Kai Widdrington rather than her show pro, Gorka Marquez.
