Len Goodman is to appear on 'History Come Dancing', a new show set to air on BBC Four

Len Goodman is to star in a new series about the history of dance.

The 'Strictly Come Dancing' judge has donned a period costume for the new show - which has already been dubbed 'History Come Dancing' - and according to one eye witness, Len's 18th century scenes were rather steamy.

Historian Lucy Worsley told The Sun newspaper: "Every so often we had to stop for Len to take off his wig to air his head."

The finale to the show - which is to air on BBC Four this autumn - features dances from three different centuries: the minuet, the Charleston and the polka.

Len recently criticised stars for quitting the BBC in favour of ITV.

He hit out at those who begin their careers on the BBC leaving to work for rivals ITV when they're offered more money, like former Strictly judge Alesha Dixon, who joined 'Britain's Got Talent' in 2012.

Len said: "I can't stand these people. The BBC made them what they are and then they shoot off to ITV. You have to be a bit loyal in this game.

"I'd never not do 'Strictly', it's fantastic. I love it and without the BBC I would have got nothing."
