Tom Bergeron will not be returning as host of DANCING WITH THE STARS, he revealed via Twitter. Additionally, Erin Andrews, who joined as co-host in 2014 is also out.

“Just informed [DANCING WITH THE STARS] will be continuing without me,” he posted on Monday afternoon. “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 has been with the long-running ABC reality series since its start in 2005. He, along with judges Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli were the only remaining participants who had been there since the beginning.

“Tom Bergeron will forever be part of the DANCING WITH THE STARS family,” ABC and BBC Studios said in a joint statement. “As we embark on a new creative direction, he departs the show with our sincerest thanks and gratitude for his trademark wit and charm that helped make this show a success. Erin will also not be returning, and we appreciate all that she brought to the ballroom. Fans have been rooting for her since she originally competed as a contestant back in 2010, and her signature sense of humor has become a hallmark of the show.”

UPDATED at 5:25 PM PT to add ABC’s statement and Andrews’ exit.
