Holly Carpenter and her pro dance partner Curtis Pritchard are dating.
The Dancing with the Stars couple found love on the RTÉ show and they are in the early stages of their budding relationship.
They recently celebrated a romantic dinner for two for Valentine’s Day. The top model and the English dancer enjoyed a meal for two in the swanky Dublin hotspot, House on Leeson Street.
A source exclusively told RSVP Live: “Curtis arrived at the venue with two dozen roses. Holly arrived separately about ten minutes later.”
“The pair ate in the private library room as they kept things low key. Holly looked absolutely gorgeous.”
Their romance was confirmed by another insider close to the well-known pair.
“Yes, they are dating. It is all very new for them,” they told us.
Both Holly and Curtis were single before signing up to Season Three of the Sunday night programme before Christmas. So it is more of a “Strictly blessing” rather than the dreaded “Strictly curse”.
Holly, who was the second celebrity to be eliminated, previously said that she was enjoying the single life and was waiting for the right guy to come along.
She told RSVP Magazine: “My mum is like ‘one day you’ll probably want a boyfriend’ and I’m like ‘I don’t know!’ I just love riding this train of self-love.’”
“Ever since Ariana Grande released ‘thank u, next’ it has been my anthem.”
Curtis returned to Dancing with the Stars on Week Five after being ruled out through injury. He was temporarily replaced by Trent Whiddon while he recovered from a brutal attack on him and his brother, Strictly Come Dancing’s AJ Pritchard.
Twenty-three year old Curtis previously dated fellow pro dancer Emily Barker. However, they ended their romance before filming on this year’s series began.
“We used to dance together when we were 12 years old and I never thought that I would see her again.”
“We got back in contact and we were part of a touring company, and now we are here,” he said before.
This is the third romance on the show in as many years. Thalia Heffernan found love with Ryan McShane on season one while Karen Byrne and star dancer Jake Carter started dating last year.
