Dancing With The Stars

Is Jett Kenny dating his Dancing With The Stars partner Lily Cornish?

Dancing With The Stars has a long history of creating romance, so could Jett and Lily be about to join the club?

Jett Kenny, the 23-year-old son of former Olympic stars Lisa Curry and Grant Kenny, will be the first to admit he's got two left feet.
But despite his less-than-perfect dance moves, the professional surf lifesaver is already one of the audience favourites on Channel 10's new reboot season of Dancing With The Stars.
And with those rippling abs and gorgeous tan, it's not hard to see why.
Since making his Dancing debut in February, the Hemsworth lookalike has become an overnight sensation with many fans wondering: Is Jett Kenny single?
Prior to going on DWTS, all signs indicated that Jett was very much a single man.
There were no cute couple pics on his Instagram and during interviews, Jett insisted he was riding solo.
When asked by Now To Love last July if there would be a "special someone" in his life cheering him on during his appearance on Ninja Warrior Australia, Jett said: "Nah, the only female that's cheering me on is my Mum!"
But that could all be about to change thanks to Jett's amazing chemistry with his dance partner on DWTS, Lily Cornish.

Lily is a professional dancer from Tasmania, with an insanely fit body to match Jett's.
She says that Jett is a "sexy dancer", who has "really strong eye contact."
On the show's premiere episode, the pair danced the Cha Cha to Bruno Mars' hit single 24K Magic, and blew the judges away with their chemistry.
"What a fantastic looking couple you are! You look like Thor! It's unbelievable," said judge Tristan McManus.
"You have this effortlessly sexy charm about you. You sort of resemble a Hemsworth I guess," said another host Sharna Burgess.
Sharna said Lily and Jett's main strength on the dancefloor was their connection.
"Both of you together, standing there right now and in your package beforehand, have the most amazing chemistry. The most fiery chemistry," she explained.
"That's one of my favourite things about the two of you right now and I want more of it."

On episode 2, the pair really took on board the judges' feedback - which was to enhance Jett's natural sexiness.
"Jet's really sexy, that's obvious," Lily said. "What he needs from me now is to transfer that to the dancefloor."
While Jett said being sexy is hard to "just switch on", dancing alongside Lily certainly isn't a tough gig.
"Really, she's gorgeous for starters. I remember the first day I walked in and met her, it was sort of like 'Wow! There's this gorgeous girl just standing in front of me'," Jett said. "There are times when we get close in some lifts or some holds or something like that and I'd be lying if I said there wasn't a spark."
During rehearsals, the pair certainly got up close and personal, with Jett even stroking Lily's leg and moving her hair behind her head.
Check out these steamy screenshots of the loved-up pair.

Offscreen, the pair have also put on a loved-up performance on Instagram, posting up a storm, arm-in-arm, on their respective accounts.

But it could just be that Jett and Lily are putting on a good show for the cameras.
A little look through Lily's Instagram account reveals as recently as late January, she was posting photos with her long-term boyfriend.
When contacted by Now To Love about the rumours, Lily refused to comment.

Dancing With The Stars has a long history of creating romance between celebrity cast members and their professional dance partners - so could that happen here too?
Turns out finding love on a reality show could turn out to be far more effective than going on Tinder for Jett.
While he's one of the best-looking blokes going around, the blonde hottie claims he actually doesn't get approached by women as often as you'd think.
"People seem to think I get a lot of attention from girls, but recently I've had people say to me, 'I don't talk to you because you get enough attention as it is,'" he told Who.
"I guess it's just a matter of finding the right person."
Could Jett go all the way to take home the trophy AND the girl? We'll let you know how he goes.
