Dancing with the Stars judge Inaba has now spoken out to praise Burke Charvet's bravery as she faces the serious illness.

"I'm just so impressed with her because I think it takes huge amounts of courage to publicly announce it this way when you're sort of going through it, because it's still scary," Inaba explained to Entertainment Tonight.

"And I have so much respect for her and so much love in my heart for her."

Inaba also praised Burke Charvet for "sharing [her diagnosis] with everybody to help other people".

"I think she's going to be fine, and I applaud her for her courage," she added.

Burke Charvet also received well-wishes from Dancing with the Stars co-host Tom Bergeron when he appeared on The Talk last week.

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

Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars continues tonight (November 12) at 8/7c on ABC.
