Dayl Cronin has denied any hint of romance with his Dancing With The Stars partner Ksenia Zsikhotska.
The 23-year-old said it would "ruin everything" if the pair started dating, and insisted that they're just the best of friends.
"We’re actually genuinely good friends and I think you need that. If something was to happen like that it would ruin everything. It’d be awkward," he told the Irish Mirror.
When asked whether he would ever consider a romance in the workplace, Dayl said, "Never, I’m too professional."

Meanwhile, this Sunday will be the semi-final of DWTS, and Dayl will go up against Aoibhin Garrihy, Aidan O’Mahony and Denise McCormack.
Although Dayl has impressed on the dance floor, he has admitted that the pressure of the show has taken a toll on his health.
"The week before last I got so run down, I got so sick. It just catches up with you. I’m not really eating well really because I don’t have time.
"When you come home after a long day you don’t want to cook veg and all that, I just order a Dominos," he added.
