UPDATE: William Levy will return to Dancing with the Stars tonight. DWTS‘ professional dancer Louis Von Amstel tells Hollywood.com exclusively that William will be back.
When asked if Levy would be returning for the Monday night broadcast, Amstel stated, “Oh yeah, definitely. When you’re on the show and you injure yourself in a normal circumstance, you would take a few weeks off — but the adrenaline rush of being on Dancing with the Stars, having so many fans watching, the adrenaline itself makes you so strong mentally that you just push through.”
DWTS airs tonight at 8 PM ET/PT on ABC.
EARLIER: Apparently competing on Dancing with the Stars can be pretty dangerous. Last Monday, April 10, contestant Melissa Gilbert was rushed to the hospital after suffering a concussion during a routine. Now, another DWTS competitor — William Levy — has also hurt himself.
“Just Wanted to let u know that I injured my right ankle pretty bad during rehearsal.. MRI tomorrow,” the actor/model, 31, tweeted late Sunday night. “I’ll let u all know .. Love u all.”
It’s unclear if Levy will make it to the dance floor tonight — and, there’s no doubt that Levy’s many fans will be disappointed if he doesn’t. Levy is a popular performer who has been considered the season’s’ frontrunner. He is partnered with professional dancer Cheryl Burke, 27.
Hollywood.com has reached out to ABC to find out if Levy will be competing tonight, but have yet to hear back.
