Len Goodman Brands Strictly Come Dancing Judges 'Stupid' Over This Year's Most Shocking Elimination

It seems Len is still not over Ranvir Singh's exit. And frankly, neither are we.

Former Strictly Come Dancing star Len Goodman has torn into the show’s remaining judges over this year’s most controversial elimination.

Yes, we’re talking about Ranvir Singh.

In this year’s semi-final, former frontrunner Ranvir landed at the bottom of the leaderboard after her Jive routine failed to impress the judges, ultimately ending up in the dance-off for the first time.

Many were surprised that when the judges chose who to send home, it was the Good Morning Britain presenter who was eliminated, rather than Made In Chelsea star Jamie Laing, who had already survived three previous dance-offs.

And it seems Len is still not over the judges’ decision, branding them “stupid” for cutting Ranvir’s Strictly journey short the week before the final.

“Ranvir throughout the whole series was fantastic,” Len told the daytime star’s colleagues Charlotte Hawkins and Alex Beresford during Thursday’s Good Morning Britain.

“Look at those stupid judges, what’s the matter with them? Sit down and get on with your judging.”

He continued: “Throughout the series, there’s always one dance that doesn’t suit [the celebrities].

“Now if Ranvir had got that Jive in week two or week three, she would’ve gone through because there was so many others that weren’t so good.

“It was just rotten luck, she got the one dance that didn’t suit her on the most important semi-final.”

Comedian Bill Bailey was crowned this year’s Strictly champion, with pop singer HRVY, soap actor Maisie Smith and Jamie all finishing as runners up.

Bill’s win also marked the first time a Strictly professional has won the show two years in a row, with that accolade going to his dance partner Oti Mabuse.

Good Morning Britain airs every weekday from 6am on ITV.
