The pair were absent from last weeks show after Missy contracted Covid-19.

“Absolutely devastated to announce that due to Covid I won't be performing on Dancing With The Stars this Sunday,” she shared.

“Dedicated dance night was something I really wanted to be part of."

“My dance was going to be in honour of my beautiful grandmother, Marie Keating, who I never got to meet.”

“Those who know her cancer story know she was taken from our family at an extremely young age and this was my moment to be with her and dance for her.”

“So I’m heartbroken with the circumstances,” she shared.

However, with her milestone birthday today, the pair have a special routine planned for this week’s show.

“Please god I will be back on that dance floor next week, I turn 21 next Friday so Ervinas and I have a super fun performance planned to celebrate it.”
