DWTS Pro Val Chmerkovskiy out for Halloween night

DWTS season 31

Val Chmerkovskiy will not be appearing on Dancing With the Stars this week.

“Dancing With the Stars” professional dancer Val Chmerkovskiy will not perform on the Monday, October 31 episode of the show.

The news was first shared by Chmerkovskiy on Instagram.

“I have bad news,” he shared in a shirtless video. “Unfortunately I have tested positive for COVID and will not be able to perform this Monday. It sucks because there is no better, more profound word.”

He shared that his partner Gabby Windey has tested negative, so she will be dancing her planned Halloween Argentinian tango.

Chmerkovskiy announced that Windey will be dancing with Alan Bersten, who was eliminated the week before the competition.

“The good news is we have some great professionals on the show, one of which is Alan, who will step in and learn the routine this Monday, and partner Gabby,” added Chmerkovskiy.

Chmerkovskiy feels like he’s let down fans

In the video, Chmerkovskiy shared that he felt he was “leting some people down” and that he was disappointed.

Chmerkovskiy’s wife Jenna Johnson is pregnant and expecting their first child in January 2023. Chmerkovskiy wrote in the comments that “wife is good too. She tested negative.”

“We will miss you!” wrote Windy in the comments on the post. “I just want to keep Jenna safe and make you feel better!”

Chmerkovskiy reiterated that he hopes to be back next week, although her quarantine lasted two weeks when Daniella Karagach tested positive for COVID, meaning her partner Joseph Baena had to dance with troupe member Alexis Warr for two weeks.

Fans went to the comments section to send good wishes to Chmerkovskiy.

“I look forward to you returning to this ballroom!! Sending you lots of love!!” one person wrote.

Another commented, “I’ll miss seeing you on the dance floor this week but I’ll still vote for you and Gabby! Feeling better soon and can’t wait to see you again next week!”

Windey shared her first behind-the-scenes look with professional dancers Koko Iwasaki and Alan Bersten on Friday, October 28 on their Instagram Stories.

Bersten has big shoes to fill as Chmerkovskiy and Windey have found themselves at the top of the leaderboard alongside Charli D’Amelio and Mark Ballas, as well as Wayne Brady and Witney Carson every week of the competition so far.

Johnson recently shared a pregnancy update

Johnson recently entered her third trimester of pregnancy and she took to Instagram to share an update with her fans.

“Big day over here….” Johnson wrote. “We are in the 3rd trimester!!! I can’t believe it’s only 12 weeks until we can meet our little bud. To celebrate, here’s a little hump progress.”

Sharing photos and videos from her pregnancy so far, she ended with her biggest stomach photo yet and a video of the boy kicking.

According to insider Kristyn Burtt, on-set tests are conducted regularly.

“Everyone is regularly tested several times a week in accordance with SAG-AFTRA-COVID regulations.” Burtt shared on Twitter. “Masks are still required on set and during rehearsals, although enforcement is a matter for the #DWTS security team.”

Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8pm ET/5pm PT on Disney+.
