‘Strictly Come Dancing’: Len Goodman’s Replacement Has Already Been Picked, According To Former ‘Strictly’ Pro

Trent Whiddon has spilled the beans.

Bookies may still be accepting bets on who will replace Len Goodman as head judge on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, but according to this former star of the show, his replacement has already been picked.

Trent Whiddon, who danced with Pixie Lott in the 2014 series, has revealed that apparently, the job will be going to Anton du Beke.

“Just have Craig [Revel Horwood] as head judge. I’m not the producer but hey!”
