Talk show host Jerry Springer has been left without a partner as he shows off his dancing skills on TV in America. The Jerry Springer Show host's Dancing With The Stars sidekick, KYM JOHNSON, has a knee injury and has been forced to pull out of the competition. Springer is currently tango-ing with a new partner, while a new dancing professional is found for him for this week's second round of the TV talent contest. Meanwhile, another competitor, US TV star MARIO LOPEZ, has been caught up in a dance scandal - a woman claiming to be his former dancing partner insists Lopez is much more than an amateur. She alleges that Lopez, the Dancing With The Stars favourite, won a series of dancing prizes when he was younger. Lopez's aides deny the claims, insisting that their client took part in hip-hop dance-offs but has had no formal ballroom training.
