Long-time “Dancing With the Stars” and “Strictly Come Dancing” judge Len Goodman has died. He was 78.


Goodman’s manager confirmed his death to the BBC on Monday. The British ballroom dancer and judge, who had been diagnosed with bone cancer, died on April 22 at a hospice in Kent, surrounded by his family.


“It is with great sadness to announce that Len Goodman has passed away peacefully, aged 78,” said Goodman’s agent Jackie Gill in a statement. “A much loved husband, father and grandfather who will be sorely missed by family, friends and all who knew him.”


Goodman was a mainstay as head judge on the popular BBC dance competition “Strictly Come Dancing” from its 2004 launch right up until 2016. He also served as a judge on the U.S. adaptation, “Dancing With the Stars” on ABC, from its launch in 2005 through to 2022.
 
So he quit last after the last season that was broadcast on the Disney app. Now he is gone. Seems like older men who quit working, seem to die within 6 months to a year later. Knew a guy at my old job the state of Texas Department of Criminal Justice and when he retired he got into fixing up his house and he died within 6 months. He only got 6 pension checks form TDCJ and never got to collect social security because he waited. He was like 65.

He had been undergoing treatment for the cancer for a while. You could tell last season how thin he had gotten.
