Found the description thanks to the Gesneriad Society:

Primulina ‘Diane Marie’. IR94481, 1994, Robert Stewart. Parents: (P. dryas (C. sinensis) ‘Angustifolia’ x P. species). Plant is a flat rosette; leaves green with extensive silver on veins; petiole 3-4 cm long, faintly reddish. Leaf blade 6-8 cm long, 4-5 cm wide, hairy; ovate, acute tip, base cuneate, margin double toothed. The calyx red, split; pedicel 3 cm long; peduncle 4 cm long with 4 flowers on each peduncle. Corolla 6 cm long, 3 cm in diameter, violet with white in the throat, violet stripes extending onto lip, yellow lines from anther, and yellow spot at tip center. Flower similar to C. sinensis var. angustifolia but larger and darker, and the plant is much more compact, with flat instead of upward leaves which are ovate instead of lanceolate. Blooms in December and sporadically in other months.

Thanks Gabi. You want to know where I keep this plant. In the moment I have in a room, probably it's around 20 degrees during winter with some heating on. I have kept it under lighting in a shelve but had to move it - the flower stalks were growing so tall that they hit the light bulbs. So I have moved it slighty to the side of the shelve. So it still gets some light.
Sometimes I am away for the weekend, then it could be that the heat will go up a little bit by 2 or 3 degrees (if the sun shines) but not too much change altogether.

After having lost the last Diane Marie I got a new one at a local garden shop (very much to my surprise as it is not the usual plant to be found locally)
