RUMOR: Shirley Ballas To Replace Len Goodman As Strictly Come Dancing Judge??

The Sun is reporting Shirley Ballas is a favorite to replace Len Goodman on Strictly Come Dancing. Wow, how awesome if true? If it’s true, maybe she will also replace him on Dancing With The Stars when he retires from our version? One can only hope. Many of us have wanted her on the Judging panel for years. Let us know what you think….

DANCING queen Shirley Ballas is the favourite to replace Strictly’s Len Goodman after dazzling bosses at a secret screen test.

The Brit — a former judge on American version Dancing with the Stars — was a “complete natural” during auditions, a source said.

She even outshone job rivals, show favourites Anton Du Beke and Brendan Cole, who also tried out.

Sources said producers are keen for a woman to join the panel alongside old hands Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood.

Last week’s try-outs at the Strictly studios in Elstree, Herts, also saw turns from ex-pro Karen Hardy and Ireland’s Dancing with the Stars judges Loraine Barry and Brian Redmond.

Chief Strictly choreographer Jason Gilkison screen-tested too.
