Dancing with the Stars will be without Grant Denyer tonight following an injury to his back.
A 10 spokesperson told TV Tonight, “Grant Denyer has suffered a bulging disc in his back that has forced him to leave the dance floor. He is on bed rest for the next few days and will be back fighting fit next week.”
Denyer was absent this morning on the 2DayFM breakfast show with Ed Kavalee and Ash London.
His manager sent an SMS to the team to indicate his injury resulted from swinging a sledgehammer on his farm. After spending the night in hospital he is now at home recovering.
Denyer previously suffered a suffered a compressed fracture of the lower vertebrae during a motorsports event in 2008. In 2012 he dropped out of a Bathurst event due to chronic back pain.

DWTS production for hosts entails a Sunday meeting and a full day of Monday rehearsals and show.
Amanda Keller will host solo tonight.
