Congratulations to Dancing With The Stars and Strictly Come Dancing judge Len Goodman!! According to the Daily Mail, Len married his long-term girlfriend and dance teacher, Sue Barrett, in a surprise wedding ceremony over the weekend among 30 family and friends. Below are a few details from the link…
Guests were treated to a champagne reception on the mezzanine balcony overlooking the central restaurant, which Goodman paid £10,000 to hire.
The couple, both dressed in blue, were married in a private room by Westminster superintendent registrar Alison Cathcart.
After the short ceremony at 2pm, their guests sat down to a sumptuous five-course lunch. There was a choice of prawn cocktail or Asian-style pumpkin soup to start, followed by mushroom risotto.
For the main course guests could choose between seabass or English lamb with stir-fried vegetables, with cheese and ‘old school’ apple crumble to finish.
The happy couple then – of course – took to the floor for, as Goodman put it, ‘a spot of dance-teacher dancing.’
The Strictly judge, who officially registered his intention to marry in August, said: ‘I’ve been going out with my lovely Sue for ages and I decided it was time to pop the question.
‘She’s gorgeous and makes me very happy – though she likes to stay out of the limelight. It was a complete surprise to my friends and family today and we’ve had a fabulous time.’

Thanks to all who sent us this news. As Sally said to me at Twitter, maybe Len will be less cranky now? LOL!
