He's become a household name as Strictly's head judge but Len Goodman appeared on Good Morning Britain on Wednesday to talk about why he quit the show. 

Talking to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid, the 72-year-old said he was concerned he had made a mistake following his 12 years on the show.

'I'm sure that in a year's time, I'll be sitting at home and I'll say to my wife Sue, I should have done it again.
