Sue Goodman, Len Goodman’s Wife: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

(ABC/Byron Cohen)

Len Goodman is the esteemed judge on Dancing With the Stars and he has returned for season 24 of the show. Let’s get to know Goodman’s life outside the show with his wife and family. Read on for details on Sue Goodman.


1. Goodman Married Wife Sue In a Surprise Ceremony

In 2012, the Daily Mail reported that Goodman married his longtime girlfriend, Sue Barrett, in a surprise wedding. The couple invited 30 family and friends, who thought they were attending a nice Sunday lunch. Goodman admitted that he told his mother about the wedding so that she wouldn’t be shocked into having a heart attack on the big day. Goodman told Daily Mail:

I’ve had a marvelous day, and now my gorgeous Sue is the new Mrs Goodman. Did I pickle my walnuts? Of course I did! I wanted it to be a low-key affair, so we didn’t tell anyone except my 96-year-old mum as I didn’t want her having a heart attack with the surprise.

2. Previously Goodman Was Married to His Former Dance Partner Who Cheated

Len Goodman married his former champion dance partner Cherry Kingston in 1972, but the couple divorced in 1987. In Goodman’s autobiography, he wrote that he felt pressure to marry Kingston, explaining:

Two weeks to the day before our wedding, my father had a massive heart attack and had a quadruple bypass. I should have taken this as warning number one: postpone the wedding. But things were too far gone with all the preparations, and I felt a huge pressure to carry on from Cherry and her mother, Joy.

Goodman continued:

Many dance marriages split up because one day you look across at the person you’re with and realize you’ve got nothing else in common – there are not enough metronomes ticking. That’s exactly what happened to Cherry and me.

According to Goodman, Kingston cheated on him with a multi-millionaire french man named Michel, who they met on vacation.


3. Sue Goodman Is a Dance Teacher

Sue and Len Goodman had reportedly been together for well over a decade before they married. Sue Goodman, 50, is a dance teacher, so the two have a lot in common.

When it comes to Len Goodman’s skills in the bedroom, he joked to The Sun:

I am good in bed – I don’t snore. I don’t take the duvet. I just lay there and go straight off to sleep. That’s all you want out of a bloke … As you get older things conk out. It’s a bit like a car. As long as it’s something the mechanics can fix, you can chug on for a few more thousand miles.

4. Len Goodman Has One Child

Goodman has just one child, a son named James. According to The Daily Mail, his son is not from either of his relationships with his wife or ex-wife. He had a longtime partner named Lesley, with whom he had his son. Goodman previously wrote that his partner Lesley “decided to give up nursing and live with me and help me run the dance school – which was great, because she was full of ideas. Things rolled along pretty nicely for a year until out of the blue Lesley dropped a bombshell. She was pregnant!”

Son James was born in 1981, but at age 12, he reportedly left to live with his mother when she and Goodman split. James Goodman is reported to be a dance teacher at his dad’s Goodman Dance Centre.


5. When He Proposed, Goodman Did Not Get Down On One Knee

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Len Goodman talked about his proposal and was asked if he “got down on one knee.” His reply was this:

At my age, no way! I made her go four stairs above me on the staircase so at least she was taller than me, does that count?

Goodman continued:

I’ve been going out with my lovely Sue for ages and I decided it was time to pop the question. She’s gorgeous and makes me very happy – though she likes to stay out of the limelight.

Why Is Derek Hough Not On ‘Dancing With the Stars’ This Season?

Derek Hough is a fan-favorite on Dancing With the Stars, and unfortunately, he will not be a part of season 24 on the show. This is not the first time that Hough has taken a season off and we’re hoping that it’s not a permanent exit. Last season on the show, he was paired with Marilu Henner and he confessed on his TV Guide blog that:

I don’t know if I’ll be back next season. It’s too early to say. I have a few projects on my plate, but you never know what’s going to happen. I didn’t think I was going to come back to the show a couple times now and ended up coming back. That show will always be my family.

Last season, Hough was a surprise addition to the cast because fans thought he would be working too much, focusing on the live TV production of Hairspray and on his Broadway show “Singin’ In the Rain.” Fortunately for DWTS fans, his Broadway production had been postponed.

Currently, Hough is gearing up for another dancing and singing tour with his sister, DWTS judge Julianne Hough. In an interview with AOL, Julianne talked about working with her brother on their third, upcoming tour. She dished:

We’re literally with each other 24/7 and have been for, I feel like, the last three years. We did two tours, and in the meantime I was finishing up my house, so I was living with him between tours. Now he’s working on his house, so he’s living with me and we’re working on the tour again … There are moments — trust me! — because he’s a creative and off in la la land, and I’m a little more structured. I like to have things in order to create versus just, like, “Let’s just throw out ideas!” Where I’m like, “But where do they go?!” When we work together we’re so different, but it works.

Derek Hough has also been cast as one of the judges on Jennifer Lopez’s new, upcoming reality dance competition show World of Dance. Fellow cast members include Ne-Yo and Jenna Dewan-Tatum. Hough also recently appeared in and directed a Michael Buble music video titled “I Believe In You”. Check it out below.

Hough’s buddy Mark Ballas, again, is not coming back to the show either. And, others who are not returning for season 24 are Cheryl Burke and Tony Dovolani. Burke dealt with a lot of stress and backlash being paired with Ryan Lochte last season. As for Dovolani, he previously released the following statement to People:

I wanted my fans to hear it from me first. I will not be on Dancing With the Stars this season, season 24. While I will miss the show and interacting with our wonderful audiences, both at home and in the ballroom, I will continue to focus on growing my Dance With Me USA studios and teaching. I will also be traveling across the country performing and making personal appearances. I will be hosting my second annual Tony Dovolani Foundation: Golf For Special Needs Children tournament on July 14. I am honored to be a member of the PGA Player and Coaching Development Committee and look forward to contributing to the future of professional golf.

On the other hand, there are two pro cast members who said they would not be on the show this season, but they changed their minds. Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd are back. The couple are engaged and recently welcomed their first child together, a baby boy. After last season, Chmerkovskiy had said that he wanted to take time away and dedicate it to being a new parent. This past Fall 2016, Chmerkovskiy told Refinery29:

The baby comes in January, and then a month and a half later I would have to be in L.A. to start training with somebody else. Trust me, I really don’t care how this comes across, but there’s no money on the planet that can replace me missing out the three, four, five months of my baby’s life. Zero chance.

Together, on Good Morning America, prior to the cast reveal, Chmerkovskiy and Murgatroyd revealed that they were on board for season 24.
