Spicer and the official “Dancing” page confirmed the news over the weekend on Instagram with some rehearsal photos.
“It’s Boy Band/Girl Group Night this Monday on @dancingabc,” Spicer wrote. “I’ll be dancing an Argentine Tango and a Foxtrot with the amazing @jennajohnson again this week. Our prayers continue to go out to Lindsay and her family. We are going to make you proud!”
Johnson filled in for Arnold last Monday after the latter’s mother-in-law unexpectedly passed away last weekend. After last Monday’s show, Johnson and Spicer said they were unsure if Arnold would return this week and said they would take it one day at a time.
Arnold shared the heartbreaking news on Instagram at the start of last week’s episode, thanking the show for letting her take time to be with her family. “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. “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.”
Spicer and Johnson scored a 20 last week for their jazz and lost the dance-off to Kate Flannery and Pasha Pashkov, but avoided the bottom two yet again.
