'DWTS' judge Len Goodman marries longtime girlfriend in surprise ceremony
There were no first-dance jitters for this groom.
“Dancing With the Stars” judge Len Goodman married his longtime girlfriend, dance teacher Sue Barrett Sunday in London, according to a report from The Daily Mail.
Goodman, 68, and Barrett, 47, tied the knot in a surprise ceremony attended by 30 friends and family members, who thought they had just been invited to a lunch. But one person did know about the nuptials – Goodman’s 96-year-old-mother.
“I didn't want her having a heart attack with the surprise,” Goodman, who has been married two previous times, told the site.
After a short ceremony, guests were treated to a five-course lunch and a first dance by the dancing pros.
“We've had a marvellous day, with marvellous food surrounded by all my dearest friends – and it didn't go on for too long so it didn't get boring!” Goodman also told the site.
