Beach babes: Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy of Dancing With The Stars showed off their fantastic figures in Las Vegas
They spent weeks undergoing rigorous regimes as they taught their celebrity partners how to dance.
So it’s no surprise Dancing With The Stars professionals Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy have incredible figures.
The dancers stripped down to their swimwear while attending a poolside party in Las Vegas today.
Peta, who scooped the mirrorball trophy alongside Donald Driver earlier this week, sported a cream string bikini with a gold trim.
The blonde accessorised her beach look with tan heeled sandals, turquoise hoop earrings and a pair of large square-rimmed sunglasses.
Meanwhile Maksim, who was partnered with Melissa Gilbert on the show, displayed his muscular shape by sporting just some below-the-knee shorts.

The toned pair spent the day Encore Beach Club, where they were presented with their own version of the mirrorball trophy, which they held up proudly.
They were co-hosting a bash to celebrate the start of summer, and partied in a private cabana with their friends - including Maksim's brother Valentin.
The duo are rumoured to be romantically linked, but Peta has brushed off reports of a relationship.
She said: ‘We're very good friends.
