Strictly Come Dancing Contestant's Mom Has Passed Away

He has fast become a fan favourite for being the gentle giant of the show but viewers will miss ex Blue Bulls rugby player John Mametsa this week as he will be taking time off to deal with the passing of his mother. 

News of Mamatse's mother's passing away broke after fellow contestant Khanyi Mbau sent him a moving message on Instagram offering her condolences and prayers to him and his family.

” To @johnmametsa condolences on the loss of your mother… Praying for you and the family, a time like this cannot be easy,” wrote Khanyi Mbau, before adding 
We will miss your strong presence and warm heart my buddy. R.I.P mama John”. 
This is the second time that a passing of a loved one has affected the show's contestants. Last year, then contestant Connie Ferguson, had to miss appearing in an episode when her mother passed during the production of the show.

My deepest condolences to the Mametse family.
