Len Goodman likes Strictly losers
Len Goodman would hate every contestant on 'Strictly Come Dancing' to be good because he thinks viewers would find the show boring
Len Goodman would hate every contestant on 'Strictly Come Dancing' to be good.
The head judge says it's important to have people with different dancing abilities as if everyone was as good as last year's winner Harry Judd, viewers would get bored.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: "If they were all Harry Judds I wouldn't enjoy it so much. You get your John Sargeants, Ann Widdicombes and Russell Grants making you laugh and the bottom line is that although it is a dancing show, it's an entertainment show.
"And if viewers are not entertained they'll turn over."
While he likes to have different types of contestants on, Len - who is joined on the judging panel by Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli - said his ideal celebrity to take part would be Simon Cowell.
He added: "I would love Simon Cowell to come on the show. And if he did, I promise I would go on 'The X Factor' and do a bit of singing. It would be a good idea, wouldn't it?
"I've got a feeling that he can't dance and I know for sure that I can't sing. It would be good fun, though."
