All The Couples Who Hooked Up On 'Dancing With The Stars'

As our latest lineup of couples hit the dance floor, let's look back on all the pairs that took their relationships beyond the rehearsal room.

Ballroom dancing -- it can be steamy, saucy stuff. Dance partners are required to get up close and personal with one another, and naturally that closeness can last long after the final pose. 

That's why many a romance has been struck up between 'Dancing With The Stars' contestants and their partners.

Dancing With The Stars 2020: How Our Celebs Fared During Their Dancefloor Debut

Opening night on 'Dancing With The Stars' introduced us to the celebs who are shimmying their way towards $50,000 for their chosen charity.

And fair enough, really -- you try not falling madly in love with the person sweeping you up in their sculpted arms.

As we settle into the latest season of '10's Dancing With The Stars', here are the couples who found love on the dance floor from Australia and around the world.

Tom Williams and Kym Johnson

Fresh out of the South African jungle after his recent stint on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get me Out Of Here!', these days Tom Williams is a happily married father of two.

Back in 2005 however, it was a different story.

The television personality was partnered with professional dancer Kym Johnson, who gifted us all by choreographing several hip-swinging, shirt-removing routines for Tom.

The pair won their season and entered into a relatively short-lived relationship after the show.

Today Kym is married to another one of her former dance partners, Canadian businessman Robert Herjavec, who she met while filming the American version of the show.

Rachael Finch and Michael Miziner

The fitness entrepreneur and Miss Universe runner-up struck up a romance with her dance partner that was more than just chemistry and rumours, she found the real deal.

Rachael and Michael met after being partnered up in 2010, and married in 2013. The couple remain married to this very day and share two young children, Violet and Dominic.

In her memoir 'Happy, Healthy, Strong', Rachael gushed over the moment she met her future husband, feeling electric chemistry between them despite assuming he was gay.

"I had no clue who my dancing partner was going to be. I walked into the room and my jaw dropped -- before me stood the most attractive man I had ever seen," she wrote.

"As it turns out, he wasn't gay..."

The pair often shared loved-up family photos to their social media pages.

Jett Kenny and Lily Cornish

The easy-on-the-eye duo insisted repeatedly that they were nothing more than friends, but that didn't stop rumours from swirling.

The Australian Ironman and model was partnered up with dancer Lily Cornish last year, and their on-stage chemistry quickly had people talking.

Jett and Lily never confirmed that they were anything more than friends but clearly grew very close after meeting on the show. They often took to social media to share cosied-up happy snaps.

Lily has returned to '10's Dancing With The Stars' this season, partnered up with Christian Wilkins.

Luke Jacobz and Luda Kroitor

The actor and presenter met the world champion dancer after being partnered together in 2008, dancing all the way to the number one spot --helping to form a theory that if you want to win that coveted trophy, falling in love with your partner may be the way to do it.

The former dance partners went on to date for two years before going their separate ways in 2010.

Adam Brand and Jade Hatcher

The Australian country music star entered into one of the show's more controversial relationships when it was confirmed he was dating his dance partner, Jade Hatcher in 2009.

Jade is 20 years his junior, and was 19-years-old when they got together.

Regardless, the couple got married in 2010 and moved to Nashville together. The couple have since divorced.

Model and influencer Amber Rose dated her partner for five months after the show. Amber also counts Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa among her list of exes.
