Most Famous Dancing with the Stars Romances of all Time
It really isn’t unusual to hear of romances happening on Dancing with the Stars (DWTS). After all, the couples spend a great deal of time together practicing their dance routines. While some of these romances aren’t exactly planned, they do occur due to the hours of time spent together each day. Here are some of the most famous Dancing with the Stars romances of all time.

Cheryl was born May 3, 1984, in San Francisco, California. Mostly everyone in the world could tell they had amazing chemistry on the dance floor, but they apparently had chemistry off the dance floor as well.
