Another personality from the ABC competition series “Dancing with the Stars” is headed out the door. Digital Spy reports that Len Goodman, one of the show’s judges, told reporters that the spring season will be his last.
Goodman reportedly said the demands of also hosting the British series “Strictly Come Dancing” had become too much.
“Next year, I’m not going to do the flying backwards and forwards — I’m not going to do the American show. … I’ve got to have a bit of time off,” Goodman said, according to Digital Spy.
Goodman reportedly added: “I’ve got my wife, I’ve got my son, my mother is still alive and she’s in hospital — I’ve had virtually no time to go and visit her. So, I just need a bit of time off to get on with a normal life. And it was either ‘Strictly’ went or the American one went or the tour went … I’m doing the spring one when I go out there … and that’s going to be my last one.”
A spokesperson for the ABC show had no comment, according to TheWrap.com.
