Strictly’s Len Goodman set to leave show
With a new Prime Minister having just been appointed and the England football team on the lookout for a new manager, there’s now another job role that will soon need to be filled. The much loved head judge of Strictly Come Dancing, Len Goodman, is set to leave the show after the next series, choosing to hand over the role to someone new.
Len Goodman has led the judging panel throughout Strictly’s 12 years on our TV screens and if you’re Strictly fans like us it will seem strange not to see him on the show. His final series on the show will air in the autumn and he will be joined by fellow judges Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood.
Speaking to the BBC he said, "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. I'm looking forward to my last series very much and to whatever comes next.”
