A veteran of the long-running ABC competition series “Dancing With the Stars” is bowing out. TheWrap.com reports that dance pro Cheryl Burke is headed out, after her contract expired Tuesday.
Burke has been with the show for much of its run, but when it celebrates its 10th anniversary next spring, she will no longer be in the lineup, the story reports.
The show’s executive producer Rob Wade told the website that Burke “has done a great service to the show and I think she feels that it’s time for her to move on.”
Wade also confirmed that judges Len Goodman and Julianne Hough are returning in the spring. Goodman had been absent for a few weeks this past season because of conflicts with the production of the U.K. version of the show.
