All four Strictly Come Dancing judges to return
Len Goodman, Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell and Bruno Tonioli have all been confirmed to take part in this year's series of 'Strictly Come Dancing'
All four 'Strictly Come Dancing' judges have signed on for the new series.
Len Goodman, Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell and Bruno Tonioli will return to judge this year's crop of celebrities' ballroom dancing moves, the BBC has confirmed.
Head judge Len recently hinted he might follow former host Sir Bruce Forsyth into retirement, but has decided to come back for series 12 of the popular contest.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "There had been fears Len might call it a day like Brucie but he has now signed.
"With ITV revamping 'The X Factor', the BBC is going to have a big battle to keep 'Strictly' out in front. They will be happy they have their judging panel secured."
The four judges will be joined by the new, all-female presenting double act of Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman.
Meanwhile, show bosses are rumoured to be close to signing up the first stars for the show.
Tennis champion Andy Murray's mum Judith, The Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford, Radio 1 DJ Greg James and former 'Coronation Street' actress Michelle Collins are all thought to be joining the line-up.
