Len Goodman Leaving Dancing with the Stars



Though some were holding out hope that Len Goodman would reverse last December's announcement that he won't be on Dancing with the Stars' judging panel for season 21, PEOPLE has confirmed that the ballroom aficionado is out due to scheduling and family commitments.

"Len will not be returning as a judge this season on Dancing with the Stars due to his schedule as a judge on Strictly Come Dancing in the U.K. and the birth of his new grandson," executive producer Rob Wade tells PEOPLE. "He still might be involved in the season at some capacity, but we will have to wait and see. We are planning on having great guest judges for some shows to join Bruno [Tonioli], Carrie Ann [Inaba] and Julianne [Hough], and I'm sure we will see Len in the ballroom again soon."

Len is out because of the weekly commuting back and forth across the pond, as he will also be judging the British version 'Strictly Come Dancing'. In the early 2016 series, I would think they'll have Len back for Season 22.

Bindi Irwin to Compete on Season 21 of Dancing with the Stars



Bindi Irwin is the first to be announced as a contestant on season 21 of Dancing with the Stars, PEOPLE can reveal in and exclusive with Good Morning America.

"I am absolutely thrilled. I can't tell you how excited I am," the daughter of the late Steve Irwin tells PEOPLE. "I think that it is going to be a truly unbelievable new experience. I can’t wait to see what is to come."

Just days before flying to Los Angeles to begin preparing for the upcoming season, Irwin, who recently turned 17, says she was out on her family's annual trip to the Steve Erwin Wildlife Preserve, where they spend "a month studying crocodiles to see where they go and what they get up to."

"The contrast will be huge," she says of shifting gears from the wilderness to the dance floor. "I'm a little scared but we will see what happens."

Victor Espinoza joins Dancing with the Stars



Triple Crown-winning jockey Victor Espinoza will appear on next season of Dancing with the Stars.

The announcement was made on SportsNation on Tuesday, as ABC continues to trickle out the news on the network’s own programs.

The pros set to team up with the stars have yet to be announced, but Espinoza’s partner will have her work cut out for her: As Espinoza admitted on SportsNation, he can’t dance and has no rhythm. Should go well.

The full roster of stars is expected to be announced on the Sept. 2 episode of Good Morning America, where ABC announced their very first star for season 21 — Bindi Irwin.

Dancing with the Stars' Peta Murgatroyd Sidelined for Season 21 Due to Injury

Peta Murgatroyd had been excitedly gearing up for season 21 of Dancing with the Stars – until a shocking e-mail changed everything.

"It was devastating news for me," Murgatroyd tells PEOPLE exclusively of being told by her orthopedic surgeon that she requires a surgery that will sideline her "for six to eight weeks."

Having just come off a three-month, live DWTS tour, Murgatroyd "felt great" heading into rehearsals with her season 21 partner, Andy Grammer. But one day, after putting on her heels, she says she could tell "something was not right."

"I wanted to check it out properly and make sure I was good to go for the season," says the pro dancer, 29. "I Got my MRI results back and it was a really bad diagnosis. It showed I had 4 torn ligaments and a floating piece of bone at the back of my ankle. My doctor said I needed surgery and I knew I needed to put my health first if I want to keep dancing on the show into my 30s."

Murgatroyd says having to step back from DWTS has been "heartbreaking," but the worst part was telling her new partner the news.

"It was awful telling Andy. He had specifically asked to be partnered with me and I felt like I was letting him down," she says. "But he understood and has been a great guy about it."

Perhaps softening the blow of the news is Murgatroyd's plan to be in the rehearsal room as much as possible to assist Grammer's new partner (who will be announced Wednesday morning on Good Morning America) with choreography.

"I'm just looking forward to being back on my feet as soon as possible and being a part of the show again," says Murgatroyd, whose surgery is currently scheduled for mid-September. "I'm so in love with the show and I'm a very competitive person. It's really sad. It's super frustrating but I'm going to fine and I'm going to be back in week eight or nine of the show."

And even though they won't be gliding across the dance floor together any time soon, Murgatroyd says Grammer is still hoping they can continue building a friendship in the meantime.

"He told me, 'This week, can you and [boyfriend Maks Chmerkovskiy] and my wife and I go out to dinner? Let's just hang out and be cool friends," she says. "That was nice. I appreciated that."
