Len Goodman has revealed the best dance EVER on Strictly Come Dancing - according to him, at least.

The head judge stepped down from the show after 2016's series and made his final ever appearance in last year's Christmas special episode.

And to celebrate 10 years behind the Strictly judges' desk, there's a brand new DVD out now called The Best of Strictly Come Dancing: Len's Grand Finale.

The special feature length DVD sees Len celebrate his time as a judge on Strictly Come Dancing by looking back at some of his favourite and most memorable Strictly Come Dancing routines.

Len awards the Best Of The Best title to Jill Halfpenny and Darren Bennett for their I’m Still Standing Jive back during the second series in 2004.

Len says: “This was the first routine ever to score 40 and that’s why it sticks in my mind.

“It’s like when Roger Bannister ran the first four-minute mile – you always remember the time it happened first.”

The legendary Strictly judge also calls out Abbey Clancy, who won the 2012 series, for particular praise.

Len said: “We’ve had models on before in America and they’ve always been terrible – ungainly, lanky.

“I thought Abbey wouldn’t have any co-ordination but she was brilliant."

Other awards dished out by Len in the DVD include the 'Best At Blackpool' which goes to Matt Baker and Aliona Vilani for their Young Hearts Run Free Samba.

Len said: “When he danced this Samba at Blackpool it was one show I’ll never forget.”

Meanwhile, Mark Benton and Ivana Lukosiute’s Can’t Touch This Cha Cha from 2013 won the title of 'Best Humour', potentially picked before Ed Balls' Salsa to Gangnam Style from this year's show...
