‘Strictly Come Dancing’ Judge Len Goodman Could Be Replaced With TWO New Judges

And then there were... five?

Just who will replace Len Goodman on the ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ panel has been talked about ever since the head judge announced he was quitting after the latest series.

But in a new twist, show bosses are reportedly now considering replacing him with not one, but two new judges.

During top secret meetings at the BBC, producers are said to be toying with the idea of recruiting a new male and female judge to join Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell and Bruno Tonioli on the panel.

The thinking is that having five judges would mean there would no longer be any ‘fix’ allegations, as there would be an odd number of judges casting their vote.

Len announced the current series of ‘Strictly’ would be his last back in July, stepping down after 12 years on the show.

Names believed to be in the running to replace Len include current professionals Anton DuBeke and Brendan Cole, and judge of Australia’s ‘Dancing With The Stars’, Helen Richey, former judge Arlene Phillips and professional dancer, Karen Hardy.
