Another "Dancing with the Stars" contestant has suffered a personal setback and has been forced to take some time off the show. In an emotional post on Instagram, Lindsay Arnold revealed that her mother-in law has died, she says:

"I am so saddened to say that my beautiful, loving, selfless mother in law has unexpectedly passed away."


"Family is the most important thing to me and being with my husband and our family at this time is exactly where I need to be," she wrote.

It is reported, Arnold and Sean Spicer had been rehearsing their routine for a week when they got the news of her mother-in-law's unexpected passing. 


"I want to thank everyone from my @dancingabc family for being so supportive and making it possible for me to be at home with my loved ones during this time," she says.

As they say, "the show must go on," and while Arnold and her family mourn their loss, Spicer has been reunited with Jenna Johnson. Speaking about her return to the show, Johnson says:

"Tonight I dedicate this dance to my best friend @lindsayarnold, who trusted me to dance with Sean this week. Lindsay, I would do anything for you girl. Sending so much love and prayers to you and your family during this hard time."


Johnson, who was eliminated at the end of October with her partner Karamo Brown, performed a jazz routine for her return to the stage with Spicer. 

"Thanks to Jenna for stepping in and dancing with me this week as Lindsay is home with her family," Spicer said about their performance.

Spicer's success on the show had not gone without controversy; despite consistently low scores his high votes have helped him to avoid elimination.

The shows judge, Carrie Ann Indaba has voiced her concerns about viewers not voting for skilled dancer, she tells reporters that she hopes viewers see it as a competition and will make sure the best dancer comes out on top.
