7 things people will really miss about Len Goodman on Strictly

The Strictly final is the last time Len Goodman will be on the judging panel – and people are not okay about it.

The show marked the occasion by playing an emotional montage highlighting his best bits from all 14 series, and dedicating a special professional dance just for him.

And as viewers savour their final sights of the man himself, these are the things they’ll miss the most:

1. The unexpected moments

2. The unfaltering desire to please him

3. The wealth of his knowledge

4. The insightful observations

5. The one liners

6. The Cockney lingo

7. The ‘seveeeeeen’s

Len’s are some pretty big shoes to fill.
