Unfortunately for Kym Johnson’s fans in the U.S., they won’t be seeing her compete on the 21st season of Dancing with the Stars. Her absence from the upcoming season was confirmed when the full cast of celebrity competitors and their professional dance partners was announced on Good Morning America on Wednesday morning.
Despite not being on the show, Kym is excited to watch it. After the big announcement was made, Kym tweeted that she’s excited about the new cast and asked her followers about their favorite pair.
When a fan told Kym that she’ll miss watching her on the show, Kym admitted that she’ll miss being on the show.
Kym Johnson is currently in her home country filming the Australian version of Dancing with the Stars, not as a dancer but as one of its three judges. Her relationship with Shark Tank star and businessman Robert Herjavec, whom she met on the 20th season of the U.S. version of Dancing with the Stars after being paired up with him, still seems to be going strong. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Robert has spent time in Australia with Kym. Robert even paid Kym a visit on the Dancing with the Stars set, where he jokingly sat next to her on the judges’ panel and she gave him a perfect score.
Four days ago, Kym posted a photo of herself and Robert sightseeing in Australia. She and Robert, along with a friend, took a photo in front of the Sydney Opera House.
As reported by the Daily Mail, while promoting the Australian version of Dancing with the Stars on an Australian morning show in July, Kym finally confirmed that she and Robert are seeing one another.
“Yeah. He’s lovely, he’s great. He’ll be at the first show watching and it’s really lovely to have him here… It’s so great he’s come out here with me. I’m showing him around – he’s going to come to the show.”
During their time together on the U.S. version of the dance competition, Kym and Robert kept viewers guessing as to whether they were more than dance partners. After their departure from the show, they were snapped kissing and hugging in Palm Springs. Since then, they have had no qualms about posting photos of themselves enjoying one another’s company on their social media accounts.
Perhaps Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson will soon post photos of themselves cheering on their friends as they compete for the Mirror Ball Trophy? The full cast of the 21st season of Dancing with the Stars are below.
