The competition is heating up on the new season of Dancing With The Stars and the temperature is reaching fever pitch between dance partners Jett Kenny and Lily Cornish.
The genetically blessed pair have set tongues wagging thanks to their sizzling chemistry on the dance floor, and now the model son of Olympian Lisa Curry and former Ironman Grant Kenny has revealed he feels as if he's dating the stunning Tasmanian professional.
In an interview with BW Magazine, the hunky 24-year-old said: "It's almost like I have a fake girlfriend. We're spending all our days together training."
Jett gushed about the beautiful brunette, praising her commitment and dedication to the show - so much so, she "moved interstate [and] left her family and friends behind" to be on hand for rehearsals.
His comments come as photos emerged of the professional partners getting up close and personal at a gig.
Lily looked to be on cloud nine as she straddled Jett's shoulders holding a can of Smirnoff Ice in her hand.
The smitten duo didn't seem to mind who was watching their loved-up display as Lily happily posed for photos wearing an ecstatic grin across her face.
Last week, Jett admitted to camera: "I'd be lying if I said there wasn't a spark."
"She's gorgeous - it's sort of like, wow," he added.
A recent installment of the Network 10 reboot showed the duo getting extremely intimate as they prepared to perform the Samba.
Rehearsal footage captured their undeniable chemistry and after their live performance judge Amanda Keller remarked: "I'd say get a room, but I think you're in it!"
Social media was quick to seize on the scandal with viewers taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on the "sexual tension".
"Does anyone else think there was major sexual tension between Jett Kenny and dancer partner Lily?" one user wrote.
"They are so getting it on. He tucked her hair behind her ear. They are so together," someone replied.
Another remarked: "Well... they're definitely doing the horizontal folk dance off-screen. Goodness me!"
