Share this article Share But that does not stop the show's other stars from teasing them - and even asking outright what is going on. The actor took on new partner Cheryl Burke while his usual partner teamed up with Charlie White 'Can you tell us you're dating?
The Australian cheered on James from the balcony during his routine 'Oh my God,' Peta blushed, while James attempted to laugh it off. The pair had actually been split up on the dance floor for the week, with all the stars getting new pros as an added challenge.
But that did not stop their furious flirting. James and Cheryl scored high marks from the judges Learning that his pro for the week would be Cheryl Burke, he admitted to her that he felt like he was cheating on Peta, adding: Peta admitted that she felt like she was cheating on James by dancing with Charlie And to make his message even clearer, James even showed a little potential jealousy.
Charlie and Peta didn't have the chemistry the judges wanted As well as her cheeky comment about his pelvis, Julianne insisted James was 'not just the hot guy who takes off his shirt'. To me you're the total package. And this was burning hot, I'm telling you,' Len Goodman agreed, as the judges gave him three 9s and an 8 for his tango.
James had guest judge Julianne gushing about his performance Lack of chemistry: Charlie White and Peta were criticised for their rumba Peta and Charlie did not fare so well with their chemistry - getting two 9s but also a 7 and an 8.
Is it a rumba? Not in my world it isn't,' Len told them, with Carrie Ann agreeing. Returning to the show, Julianne had also raised some heat with her sexy dress opened in a circle in her cleavage. Julianne Hough returned to DWTS in a stunning peek-a-boo black dress Fan favorite Derek Hough also raised temperatures as he and the other male dancers from the Macy's Stars Of Dance troupe performed a flamenco number shirtless. Meanwhile James's rival for the female fans' affections, teen pop star Cody Simpson, had a challenging week - even though he was paired with fellow Australian, pro dancer Sharna Burgess, who he admitted he 'was honestly hoping I'd get to work with'.
But Sharna - who repeatedly told Cody to pull up his trousers and his his underwear - admitted the struggled through a generation gap. Cody Simpson switched partners and was teamed with pro dancer Sharna Burgess, a fellow Australian 'I'm not old - I'm 28! Cody started his dance routine by singing Drew Carey, 55, had a similar experience by being partnered with Cody's usual dancer, Witney Carson, admitting: He drew shocked gasps from the audience when he admitted he didn't miss his usual partner, Cheryl Burke, but she soon got her revenge when she said: Drew Carey drew rave reviews with his Cha Cha in a gold suit No matter what the dynamic, the judges all praised his Cha Cha, in which he wore a gold suit, giving all 8s and one 9.
Calling him a 'dancing Ferrero Rocher', Len joked: Drew admitted to favouring his new partner Witney Carson One dancer seems a definitely safe bet - Charlie's partner on ice, Olympian Meryl Davis, who switched between the Chmerkovskiy brothers, going from her usual partner Maksim to his brother, Val, joking it was 'some incestual adultery'. She got three 10s and a 9 - the same as her top-of-the-leaderboard score last week - with Len stopping her getting a perfect score even though he told her: You are so beautiful - it's true.
Gold medal-winning ice dancer Meryl Davis turned in another beautiful performance So graceful: Meryl impressed the judges and audience again and earned top scores High praise: Julianne told Meryl that she would love to dance like her Carrie Ann agreed: Candace Cameron Bure and Tony Dovolani started the show with a s-themed quick step Danica McKellar also swapped a McKellar, getting Maksim rather than her usual partner Val, which got all 8s - even after scathing critique from Julianna who questioned whether Maks 'phoned it in' so 'this week could get passed so you could get back with Meryl'.
Danica McKellar reacted during the judges' review that included a suggestion by Julianne that her new partner Maksim 'phoned it in' Of the contestants, Olympic snowboarder Amy Purdy - who dances with prosthetic legs - admitted she was the most nervous of the partner swap as give Mark Ballas 'the run down' as to 'what works, what doesn't' with her legs.
They initially seemed in trouble as Mark was less supportive and hands on than Amy's usual partner Derek - but that got praise from the judges when she danced more on her own than usual. Julianne noted how every talks about how inspiring she is - admitting it is 'hands down totally the truth' - but stressed: You here as a competitive, and fierce assed - tight ass, by the way - girl.
Amy Purdy impressed her new partner Mark Ballas who said it was one of his favourite weeks on the show Bruno said she 'continues to astonishing me', referring to her 'very very hot' hips in tight black leather trousers, while Len joined in by saying: Tom Bergeron and co-host Erin had a particularly good time during the show NeNe Leakes, meanwhile, got Derek Hough - as well as her highest praise of the season.
Calling it 'so much fun', Julianne said: NeNe Leakes and Derek Hough danced performed an energetic jazz dance and nailed it.
