Jane Seymour’s future on Dancing with the Stars “unclear” after her mother’s death

Jane Seymour, a contestant on Dancing with the Stars 5, will miss tonight’s live results show because her 92-year-old mother died.

As to her future on the show, “All of those things remain unclear at the moment,” Seymour’s representative told Access Hollywood, which reports that she “is now on her way to England to be with her family and attend services.”

In a statement, Seymour said, “My mother survived incredible challenges … her health issues that she never complained about … three and half years in a Japanese concentration camp in World War II and the loss of her husband, John, who was the love of her life. However, she was always a beacon of love and hope for all she met and especially for my sisters Anne and Sally and for our entire family. Her spirit was indomitable and will continue to live forever in our hearts.”
