Cheryl Burke will not be returning for the upcoming season of “Dancing with the Stars,” Gossip Cop confirms.

The professional dancer, who’s a fan-favorite among the pros featured on the ABC reality competition show, has decided not to come back and instead perform in her live stage tour, Love on the Floor, which kicks off in June. Burke is also reportedly in early discussions for possible TV hosting gigs. She’s participated in 19 seasons of “DWTS” so far, having first appeared in 2006 on Season 2, which she won alongside celebrity partner Drew Lachey. Burke also took home the mirror ball trophy in Season 3 with the help of former NFL player Emmitt Smith.

Burke remained as a pro dancer on the series until taking off for Seasons 20-22, but she returned for Season 23 to compete alongside Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte. Additional pro dancers who won’t be participating for the upcoming season of the show include Derek Hough, Mark Ballas, Tony Dovolani and Jenna Johnson.

As for Season 24’s celebrity competitors, ABC will officially announce the lineup on “Good Morning America” March 20, but a number of names have already been rumored. Among the stars possibly appearing on the show next season include Simone Biles, Chris Kattan, Mr. T, Nancy Kerrigan, Erika Jayne, Normani Kordei, Nick Viall, Charo, Heather Morris, Bonner Bolton and Rashad Jennings.
