Love Island Australia fans were left drooling after watching Sophie Monk perform a hot and heavy Spanish-inspired dance with a sexy AF partner in the new 2022 promo.

While it was hard not to take your eyes off the blonde beauty, fans of another Aussie reality show quickly recognised her on-screen beau as Dancing with the Stars’ Julian Caillon.

The 26-year-old debuted on the series in 2021 alongside Angie Kent – and has quite the performance resume.

He first tried his hand at reality TV stardom during the short-lived 2014 revival of So You Think You Can Dance Australia.

Julian has also worked alongside esteemed choreographers for both stage and screen, including the stage performance of Baz Lurhmann’s Strictly Ballroom and a cinematic reproduction of Dirty Dancing.

On top of it all, Julian is a Shake, Rattle ‘n Roll and Burn the Floor alum. He has also performed alongside many of his fellow DWTS professionals, including Lily Cornish and Jarryd Byrne.

Julian can be found at the gym when he’s not carving up the dancefloor. He studied exercise psychology and works as a personal trainer. Sign us the hell up!
