Strictly Come Dancing (UK)
A number of well-known faces from the worlds of entertainment and sport put on their dancing shoes as they turn into celebrity dance contestants (each with a professional dancer), mastering a different dance for each episode and compete for the votes of the audience (lowest votes received is eliminated).The judges often make harsh comments.
Leonard Gordon Goodman (born April 25, 1944) is a British professional ballroom dancer, dance judge, ...
Len Goodman - "The tango's like a pickled onion - sharp and aggressive..."
Head judge Len Goodman knows what he's talking about when it comes to dance.
Recently awarded a Life Achievement Award for his work in dancing, Len splits his time between London and Los Angeles, judging on both Strictly Come Dancing and Dancing With The Stars.
Born in Bethnal Green, Len spent his youth as a welder in the London Docks and then pursued his passion for football before injury ended his career.
Len then took up ballroom dancing and specialised in a form of dancing called Exhibition, which is all about the lifts. He quickly became a British champion, winning the title four times.
On Strictly Len is more concerned with performance than technique and will be paying more attention to the celebrities than the professional dancers.
He will be looking out for good interaction between the couples. Len does not want to see any nerves surfacing on the night.
