Missy Keating will be unable to take part in this week's Dancing With The Stars after she tested positive for Covid-19.

Keating, the daughter of former Boyzone front man Ronan Keating, is said to be feeling well and hopes to return to the show next weekend in full health.

"Absolutely devastated to announce that due to Covid, I won't be performing on Dancing with the Stars this Sunday. Dedicated Dance Night was something I really wanted to be part of," she said.

"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.

"Please God I will be back on that dancefloor next week. I turn 21 next Friday so Ervinas and I have a super-fun performance planned to celebrate it. Will keep you updated."

Missy and her dance partner, Ervinas Merfeldas, will train virtually until Missy has concluded her quarantine period.
