TV judge Len Goodman marries in secret

The professional ballroom dancer, who serves as a judge on TV shows Strictly Come Dancing and Dancing with the Stars, exchanged vows with dance teacher Sue Barrett, his partner of more than 10 years.

The couple invited 30 relatives and close friends to lunch at Mosimann's private restaurant in London, and took their guests by surprise when they stood up for the ceremony.

Goodman told The Daily Mail newspaper: "I've had a marvellous day, and now my gorgeous Sue is the new Mrs. Goodman.

"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. 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!

"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. It was a complete surprise to my friends and family today and we've had a fabulous time."

Goodman was previously married to his dance partner Cherry Kingston and has a 31-year-old son, James, with his second wife Lesley.
