Jimmy Rees Quits 'Dancing With The Stars' Due To Sick Son

Jimmy Rees (AKA Jimmy Giggle) has confirmed that he has withdrawn from Dancing With The Stars Australia due to "personal reasons". 

His decision was confirmed by Channel Ten this morning. 

"Jimmy Rees has made the difficult decision to leave Dancing With The Stars. His seven week-old son, Mack, recently suffered complications during a routine procedure and is in hospital in a stable condition," a spokesperson said in a statement. 

"Understandably, Jimmy has left the competition to be by his son, and wife Tori’s side, during this difficult time."

Just weeks prior to the show's premiere, Jimmy and his wife, Tori, welcomed twin boys into the world - Mack and Vinny. 

"Mack is currently under care at Randwick Hospital, where the ICU staff are monitoring the situation. Mack is in a stable condition, and at this time there is no cause for immediate alarm," a post on his official Facebook page reads. 

Jimmy's exit leaves four contestants - Samuel Johnson, Jett Kenny, Constance Hall and Courtney Act - remaining on the show, which continues tonight on Channel Ten.
