Tom Bergeron Has Shared Health Updates on Social Media in the Past

Bergeron has kept his fans in the loop about various things going on in his life, including things to do with his health. In fact, when he tested positive for the coronavirus, he shared a photo of his test and let his fans know that he had fallen ill.

“Well, I dodged it for over two years but it finally caught up with me. And I thought I was stubborn,” he captioned a photo of his positive test in July 2022.

A few days later, he shared another update.

“Covid Day 5. Finished Paxlovid prescription this morning. Works great but has interesting metallic aftertaste. Like French kissing a robot,” he wrote.

Bergeron hosted “Dancing With the Stars” for the show’s first 28 seasons, beginning in 2005. In 2020, however, he was let go alongside his co-host Erin Andrews.

“Just informed @DancingABC will be continuing without me. It’s been an incredible 15 year run and the most unexpected gift of my career. I’m grateful for that and for the lifelong friendships made. That said, now what am I supposed to do with all of these glitter masks?” Bergeron tweeted in July 2020, according to Variety.

Bergeron, whose Twitter account has since been deleted, was replaced by Tyra Banks. In 2023, Banks left the show and Julianne Hough was named as the host for season 32. Alfonso Ribeiro will serve as co-host when the season kicks off in the fall of 2023.
