British Sources Reporting Strictly Come Dancing 2016 Will Be Last Season For Len Goodman

So about a month ago, via the Daily Mail, we heard Len Goodman made a $3.3 Million (British pounds) deal to judge Dancing With The Stars Season 23. Not sure if it was true, but, now the Daily Mail is reporting Len won’t be returning to Strictly Come Dancing (the British version of Dancing With The Stars) after the 2016 season. The Huffington Post UK is also reporting this news as well as other British news sources.

The star’s decision to turn his back on the programme won’t come as too much of a surprise as he previously said he felt drained working on both shows and was struggling with the 11-hour commute.

There is as yet no word on who is being lined up to replace the TV favourite on the panel, but names including professional dancer Anton du Beke have been thrown into the mix in the past.

The news will come as a blow to fans following the departure of beloved presenter Sir Bruce Forsyth in 2014, amid fears the show was affecting his health.

Bruce, 88, has since been involved in the Strictly Children In Need and Christmas Specials and there is hope Len might do the same.

Strictly Come Dancing returns for its 14th series this autumn on BBC One.

Has Len Goodman Landed a $3.3 Million Deal To Judge Dancing With The Stars Season 23?

Not sure how true this is, but, the Daily Mail is reporting Len Goodman has landed a $3.3million deal to return to Dancing With The Stars in the US. I like Len, but, I wonder what this means for Julianne Hough (if true)? I really wanted to see her return to the Judges table. I also have a hard time believing they’d pay him $3.3 Million. Read on and let us know what you think (if true).

Len Goodman has reportedly signed a £3.3M deal to return to Dancing With The Stars.

The 72-year-old judge will return to his position as head judge on the panel, with a brand new pay deal.

According to reports US executives enticed the star back to the show with an offer that was too good to turn down.

A friend told The Sun: ‘Len genuinely wanted to take a step back and enjoy a bit more free time. But he still has the energy of a man half his age so he thought why not. And the money is a bonus.’

MailOnline has contacted a spokesperson for Len Goodman for comment.

The Kent-born dancing pro has starred on Strictly Come Dancing’s American adaptation since it started on ABC in 2005, taking a quick break for season 21.

At the end of 2014 Len, who split his time between LA and London, told Digital Spy: ‘Next year, I’m not going to do the flying backwards and forwards.’

PureDWTS Season 22, Week 8 – Power Rankings

*shaking head* Still trying to reconcile the fact that Ginger is getting heaped with praise and given perfect scores, when her dances are about as exciting to me as watching paint dry/water boil/grass grow/British Parliamentary proceedings/etc. Yes, I know she’s a company gal; but I still don’t really understand what the benefit would be to DWTS to push her as hard as they have been. Are they changing narratives in the 11th hour, and gunning for a 2nd MBT for Val after all? Are they trying to keep the GMA casting pool fruitful for future seasons? Is this image rehab for Val the social media sociopath? Or was last night just part of the ruse – that maybe Ginger isn’t finale bound after all, and they were just giving her a nice send-off? My head spins trying to make sense of it. The grim reality is, though, that tonight’s tongue bath of Ginger may have dashed our hopes of a Nyle/Wanya/Paige finale – and we may see one of those three heading home in next week’s double elim instead of advancing to the finale, despite the fact that those 3 have been the most consistent and entertaining this season.  Buckle in, kids – next week is probably going to hurt.

I love how they touted the Judge’s Challenge (or whatever the hell they were calling it) as a “brand new dance” – bitch please, that was just a combo of the dance duels from season 18, the judge’s challenge from season 20, and the “America scores” fiasco from season 21. Three shitshows rolled into one, for your viewing pleasure.  The scores ended up being a complete cop-out, though, with each dance receiving the same score – and while I saw a lot of folks up in arms about it, I have to say I was a tad relieved; I don’t think any of the 3 dances really passed muster, and each had their own set of faults to contend with.  But giving them all the same score does two things: it makes the margins much closer, so it’s easier for someone at the bottom of the leaderboard (read: WANYA) to claw their way outta the bottom two; and it basically just throws it back to the fans…he or she with the most votes, advances, with slightly less power given to potentially skewed judges’ scores.  The judges’ dance didn’t really help anyone (except maybe Wanya, in a roundabout kinda way), but it also didn’t really hurt anyone, either. It’s pretty much all on the fans, at this point – the second dance just leveled the playing field a bit.

As for Jodie – she had a good run, and she went out on a high note; Keo probably grew more in this season than he has in all 3 of his previous seasons combined.  I’d call that a win for both, and for what it’s worth, Jodie actually seemed a tad relieved to be heading home.  I think she had wanted to do the show for quite some time, and unfortunately she got cast on a season where the competition was unusually fierce.  On a more “normal” season, I think she would have EASILY made the finale; but I think the pressure really got to her this season, both in terms of trying to do well and trying to emotionally support her partner.  And hey, it dovetailed nicely into her starting filming for season 2 of Fuller House today 🙂 And also for what it’s worth – I think Keo ended up being the right kind of partner for her.  I think she was too emotionally fragile to deal with a critic like Val or an Artem week after week, she was too tall for Sasha, and I can’t imagine anyone else partnering Paige than Mark.  It worked out, and hopefully Keo can come back next season as a more seasoned pro.
