Speaking on The Talk yesterday, an emotional Bergeron revealed that he has known about Burke Charvet's diagnosis for some time.

"We were texting this morning before I came out here," he said. "I've known about this for a few months and I told her at the time she first told me that I've had experience with this in my family.

"You never want to hear the word 'cancer' but thyroid cancer is one of the most treatable cancers. It has an incredibly high success rate."

Burke Charvet admitted in her video that she would probably end up with a "nice big scar" across her neck, saying: "I don't get to just walk around or pretend like nothing happened or not follow it up and not share it, because it's pretty much going to be dead centre."



However, Bergeron pointed out that "in the hands of a very good surgeon", her scarring "doesn't necessarily have to be that visible".

He concluded: "She knows my love and support are with [her] and we're all right there with her."

Burke Charvet has vowed to take a "positive" approach to her treatment, saying: "As crazy as it is, my head is in the right place, and it's going to be good."

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays and Tuesdays on ABC.
