Len: Strictly came at right time

Len Goodman shot to fame in his sixties

Len Goodman has admitted he's happy not to have landed his Strictly Come Dancing job earlier in life.

The 68-year-old dance supremo has been head judge on the BBC One show since it arrived on screen in 2004.

He told The Sun: "I didn't get asked to do Strictly Come Dancing until I was 60. I'd never done any TV - I was just a dance teacher in Dartford.

"If I'd got Strictly when I was 25, I would probably have been photographed staggering out of nightclubs with a dolly bird on my arm."

Len - who is also a judge on US show Dancing With The Stars - added: "I wish I'd had the common sense I've got now back then - but of course you can't have."
