Strictly Come Dancing's Len Goodman says goodbye with his own show tonight

Christmas Special 2016

Len Goodman says goodbye to Strictly Come Dancing in his very own show on BBC One tonight.

Strictly Len Goodman is on this evening at 7PM and documents the 'king' of the Strictly ballroom and his time on the show.

Stars including Strictly hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman pay tribute to Len who announced his decision to step down from the show after ten years back in the summer.

Claudia says on the programme: “Len is the king of all things ballroom and basically the king of Strictly. Everyone totally respects him.”

She continues: “He is a master, so everyone totally respects him, both on front of camera but also backstage.

“So if Len wanders down and goes, ‘Yeah, it was a good lift’, everyone goes, ‘Oh, Len liked it’, because he is unfailingly honest but also incredibly knowledgeable.”

"As far as Strictly is concerned, Len is the daddy," adds Tess. “There’s so many favourite Len moments, just working with him every week is such a treat, you know that little sparkle in his eye, that cheeky little glint he has.

“I love watching him dance when he comes onto the show at the beginning when we introduce him and he interacts with the audience, he’s high fiving them, he’s gliding past them, jiving up a storm.”

Strictly Len Goodman is on tonight, 7PM, BBC One.
