KARA Tointon showed her boyfriend Artem Chigvintsev just how much she missed him when she was reunited with him in LA last night.
The Strictly champ was clearly excited to see professional dancer Artem and raced towards him to plant a huge smacker on his lips when he met her at LAX airport.
Ex-EastEnders actress Kara, 27, has taken time out of her rehearsals for Pygmalion to spend time with Artem.
The 28-year-old Russian is currently back in the States applying for a new visa so he can return to the UK.
Kara, who had dressed casually in combat trousers, a vest top and leather jacket for the long journey, took her younger sister, Inbetweeners star Hannah Tointon, with her for the trip.
She had expressed her excitement about seeing her man before boarding the flight.
Kara told her fans on Twitter: "Going to see my gorgeous man. Can't wait."
Last week he Tweeted: "It so nice to be back in LA the weather is just amazing but miss my Bubu and everyone in London...
"I am in LA at the moment and don't have my visa for UK just yet."
The pair got together when they were partnered on the BBC1 dancing show last year but haven't be able to spend much time together since the Strictly tour ended last month.
