'Strictly Come Dancing': Brendan Cole States His Case To Replace Len Goodman

Could he be about to bag a new 'Strictly' role, after 12 years on the show?

Brendan Cole has put forward his case to take over from Len Goodman on the ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ judging panel.

Ever since Len announced he’d be stepping down as Head Judge at the end of this year’s series, Brendan’s name has repeatedly been linked to the ‘Strictly’ role.

He’s now revealed that he’d be keen to take over from Len, even listing why he thinks that he or his close friend and co-star Anton Du Beke would be the best for the job.

While Brendan and Anton have both been widely tipped for the new job - and even Len himself has said he wants a ballroom expert to take over - others have also been claimed to be in the running.

It was recently suggested that current ‘Strictly’ judge Craig Revel Horwood could be in for a promotion to Head Judge, while Helen Richey, who appears on on the Australian version of the show, has also been rumoured.

Before his replacement is announced, though, Len still has one series left on ‘Strictly’, which kicks off for a new run on Saturday (3 September).
