Host Tom Bergeron, a fixture on the ABC competition show “Dancing with the Stars,” will hand off hosting duties on tonight’s show to Alfonso Ribeiro, People magazine reports.
Bergeron is taking a break to be with his father, who is ailing, the report notes.
Bergeron sent out the news Sunday in a tweet, writing: “I’ll miss 2morrow’s #dwts to be at my Dad’s bedside. He’s given me a lifetime of support. Time to return the favor.”
Ribeiro, who broke out on “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” is the season 19 champion on “DWTS,” and appeared last week as a guest judge on the program. He currently hosts “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”
Below is a much-loved clip of Ribeiro competing on “Dancing with the Stars” — including his revival of the dance step “The Carlton” from “Fresh Prince.”
