While happily married mother of two Melissa Joan Hart won’t be engaging in any hanky-panky with her dance partner Mark Ballas on Dancing with the Stars, she still thinks that on-set romance is inevitable for some other people on the close-knit DWTS set.

“There is just a lot of chemistry,” Melissa, 33, revealed to OK! the Pepsi 500 Celebration in Hollywood on Wednesday.

“It’s hard because people are so close and it’s an intense feeling with all of this nervousness so you’re kind of holding onto people, especially your partner,” she explains.

With rumors flying that fellow contestant Aaron Carter, 21, is dating his on-set partner Karina Smirnoff, 31, Melissa suspects the spark may not be mutual.

“I mean, I think there are some people that are digging on each other,” Melissa dished to OK! when asked about the odd couple’s relationship status. “But I don’t know if it’s reciprocated.”
