Len Goodman has quit BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, after being on the show for more than a DECADE. However, you’ll still see him this year…
Len has confirmed that he will quit the show after this years series, making it his very last. He’ll leave his fellow judges Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood behind.
In a statement released today, Len said: “In 2004, I was asked to take part in a brand new BBC Saturday night show and who would have thought me, old Len Goodman, would still be part of this amazing series more than 10 years on.
“This adventure began when I was 60 and now that I’ve reached my 70s, I’ve decided after this year it’s time to hand the role of Head Judge to someone else.”
The judge concluded: “It is an honour being part of the wonderful Strictly Come Dancing family and I’m looking forward to my last series very much and to whatever comes next.”
Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC One in just a matter of months for its fourteenth series.
