Dancing with the Stars judge Len Goodman married his longtime girlfriend, dance teacher Sue Barrett, in a surprise ceremony on Dec. 30.
The British ballroom expert, 68, and Barrett, 47, invited 30 of their closest friends to what was supposed to be a quiet lunch. Instead, the couple surprised them with a wedding ceremony.
‘I’ve had a marvelous day, and now my gorgeous Sue is the new Mrs Goodman,” Goodman told the DailyÂ Mail. “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.”
When asked if he got down on one knee to propose, he said:Â ”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?”
Wishing the new Mr. and Mrs. Goodman a lifetime of happiness!
