Jett Kenney finally confirms DWTS romance rumours

Jett Kenny has finally confirmed he is dating his Dancing With the Stars partner Lily Cornish.

The news may not come as a surprise for many, however, the couple have gone out of their way the last couple of months to neither confirm nor deny their budding romance.

The 24-year-old told the Daily Telegraph on Friday that he is struggling with his girlfriend, 20, being away from him while she works on a cruise ship.

“She's working on a cruise ship for four months. Four months separated and she ... doesn't always have [phone] reception,” Jett, the son of Lisa Curry and Grant Kenny said.

The two came fourth in the Network 10 dancing competition, with Jett admitting they were both in a “tricky situation” while partnered during the show earlier this year.

When the dancing duo were first introduced on DWTS, Lily was in a relationship.

The couple both finished off their journey on the show, however, kept a close relationship after the cameras stopped rolling.

While romance rumours were flying around while filming the reality show, they avoided confirming whether they were true or not.

Although, Jett admitted to The Courier Mail back in March he was attracted to his dancing partner.

“I'd be lying if I said I didn't have feelings for her,” he said at the time.

He went on to say: “[When the show ends] it will almost be like breaking up, we'll be going back to reality and living our normal lives.”
