Derek Hough Decided to Skip 'Dancing with the Stars' Out of an "Abundance of Caution"

Derek Hough unfortunately had to miss last night’s Britney Spears-themed Dancing with the Stars episode due to possible Covid exposure. Tyra Banks announced the news, explaining that Derek has tested negative, but wasn’t on set “out of an abundance of caution.”

Prior to Tyra’s announcement, Derek had cancelled a show in Las Vegas on Sunday.

This news comes after Dancing with the Stars pro Cheryl Burke and contestant Cody Rigsby tested positive for Covid ahead of last Monday’s episode. Cheryl announced the news last weekend, saying “for those of you who don’t think COVID is a real thing, it’s fucking real, dude,” while Cody revealed he’d also tested positive on Thursday, saying “To properly rest and recover as well as avoid exposing others, I will be taking a break in the coming days. I appreciate all your support and I’ll be back as soon as I am ready.”

The pair ended up competing on Monday’s episode from home and honestly did an amazing job, so go ahead and watch their remote performance here:
