Goodman died on Saturday night with his wife Sue Barrett and son James, from a previous relationship, by his bedside, according to Gill. The former ballroom dancer was a beloved husband, father and grandfather who will be missed by those who knew him, the statement added.

He had previously been diagnosed with bone cancer. Goodman, who was head judge of “Dancing With the Stars” since its 2005 premiere, announced in November “with a touch of sadness” that the season would be his last on the judge’s panel after 17 years.

The show moved to Disney+ in the fall of 2022 after 30 seasons on ABC. “It has been a huge pleasure to be a part of such a wonderful show,” he said at the time. “But I’ve decided I’d like to spend more time with my grandchildren and family back in Britain. I could not thank you enough, my ‘Dancing With The Stars’ family, it’s been such a wonderful experience for me.”

What other show has Len Goodman judged?

Apart from the obvious Dancing with the Stars, Goodman has also judged several other reality television shows.

Goodman also judged BBC’s “Strictly Come Dancing” for 12 years

A former professional ballroom dancer and British champion, Goodman was also head judge on “Strictly Come Dancing” for 12 years from its launch on the BBC in 2004. Like “DWTS,” the dance competition pairs celebrities with professional dance partners. It was a surprise hit and has become one of the network’s most popular shows. For several years he judged the British and American shows simultaneously each autumn, crossing the Atlantic weekly.

BBC director-general Tim Davie said Goodman was “a wonderful, warm entertainer who was adored by millions. He appealed to all ages and felt like a member of everyone’s family. Len was at the very heart of Strictly’s success. He will be hugely missed by the public and his many friends and family.”
