It's a love story! Take a look back on Jett Kenny's relationship timeline

Is the fan-favourite star still seeing his DWTS girlfriend Lily Cornish?

Jett Kenny is sure to make waves when he joins the new season of SAS: Australia.
He's an Ironman champion, son of two legendary athletes, Lisa Curry and Grant Kenny, and it doesn't hurt that he's previously appeared in a competitive reality TV show – albeit, showing off his moves on Dancing With The Stars.
As he prepares to hit our screens once more, Jett's rugged good looks and charm are sure to place him centre stage once more.
Having made headlines in the past for some of his romantic flings, fans have been left wondering one very important thing: who is Jett Kenny's girlfriend?

Jett's most notable romance came courtesy of his appearance on Dancing With The Stars, where he performed alongside Lily Cornish in early 2019.
Prior to that, Jett "hadn't dated a lot since high school," according to a close friend. Which made his relationship with Lily all the more special.
With obvious chemistry from the get-go, the pair were regularly questioned on the nature of their relationship – even by the show's hosts Amanda Keller and Grant Denyer.
"We are very close," Jett told TV WEEK at the time. "She has insight into my life that a lot of people wouldn't know about. We're there for one another."
"We've got to know each other really well. Everyone thinks we're dating, but we'll just have to wait and see how things pan out."

While he may have played it off at the time, the pair did eventually begin seeing each other in the real world – though they had to do long-distance while Lily worked as a dancer.
The lowkey couple became Instagram official in May, 2019, when Jett shared a photo of them enjoying a day out in Sydney Harbour before Lily departed for four months of work.
"Not sure if I'm going to last four months without annoying you daily," he said in the caption of the loved-up snap.
Though long-distance is known to be tough, the pair made it work for a time – even enjoying a reunion in Europe in August – but eventually called the whirlwind romance quits.

Jett was next linked to the heiress Francesca Packer in October, 2020, when their flirty Instagram banter caught the eye of keen fans.
Francesca, niece of billionaire business mogul James Packer, was seen leaving a series of fire emojis under a shirtless photo of Jett on Instagram.
Reports surfaced claiming the duo were a hot new couple, though neither Jett nor Francesca ever confirmed.
Whether or not that's proof of a romance, they'll always have those fire emojis. Swoon!

Aside from that, Jett's love-life has remained relatively lowkey and out of the spotlight.
But who knows? Reportedly single as he filmed the recent reality TV series, Jett might even be the first SAS contestant to find love in a very unlikely place: SAS training.
SAS: Australia premieres Monday, September 13, at 7:30pm on Channel Seven.
