Len Goodman will perform on the one-off Christmas 'Strictly Come Dancing' episode.

The 72-year-old head judge will take his talents to the floor to perform a farewell dance for his fans as he steps down from his judging role on the programme after 12 years.

Len finished filming his final episode on Monday night (28.11.16) and it is believed he will perform a dance routine as part of a group, according to the Daily Mirror newspaper.

The report comes after fellow judge Craig Revel-Horwood previously hinted that Len will take to the dance floor.

He said: "I'm hoping we might see him dance, because Len's a fantastic dancer."

The festive special will also see a star-studded line-up battling for the Christmas Silver Star trophy.

The show's line-up features Kiss FM DJ Melvin Odoom, Olympian Denise Lewis, singer Frankie Bridge, Billy Connolly's wife, Pamela Stephenson, Celebrity chef Ainsley Harriott and Welsh TV presenter Gethin Jones.

The programme will be presented by Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman, and it will be the final time that judges Craig, Darcey Bussell and Bruno Tonioli will join Len on the panel.

Speaking previously about his departure from the show, Len said: "It's really nice people say we're going to miss you and I'd rather they say that than, 'Thank God you're going'.

"But I've done it for 12 years. I want to spend a bit more time with my family. I just think it's time to move on."

Len also claimed he did not know who would replace him as head judge.

He said: "I can tell you no one knows who will replace me yet.

"The producers told me they have enough on their plates and will not decide until the new year after the series is over."
