He’s the Head Judge on Strictly Come Dancing, so Len Goodman knows what he’s talking about when it comes to the celebrity dance show.
Len insists that none of this year’s contestants have an unfair advantage even if they have a dance or sporting background,
“What is strange about Strictly is it is a pretty level playing field for everyone. People are saying that as Denise has been in Chicago and Kimberley went to stage school, they have an advantage. Equally, with the Olympians and their ethos of training, they have an advantage and so it goes on,” Len has said to The Sun.“But at the end of the day, you can make a case for everyone having a bit of advantage – but none of them have done ballroom or Latin before,” he states.
“I will treat everyone equally. You judge people on how good they are compared to others. If somebody gets a nine and the next person comes out better, you will give him or her a ten.”
While Len doesn’t think that any of this year’s cast has a better chance at winning he does this this year’s celebs are the most attractive yet,
“Is it the most beautiful line-up we have seen? What I do think is, it is great that we have some gorgeous girls, hunky guys and a few older ones too. We have got a great mix. It’s going to be absolutely stonking.
We wouldn’t use the word stonking, but we totally agree. Roll on 9pm on Friday.
