'It's really difficult to do both,
impossible really. This show is full time. There is zero flexibility.
And I want to do other projects. I want to push myself into other areas.
'And this is my 10th season, a great benchmark. You just kind of feel it. I need to take that chance. It's important.'
Season 15 of Dancing with the Stars

during the match as their friends looked on and giggled.
Derek has also been romantically linked to fellow contestant Katherine Jenkins and Cheryl Cole.
