Len Goodman (✝78) probably already felt it. The professional dancer was part of the Strictly Come Dancing jury from 2004 to 2016. But the British native not only made a judgment on this show but also on Dancing with the Stars. But now it was time to say goodbye to the ballroom dancer because he succumbed to the consequences of bone cancer and died at the age of 78. Len had previously predicted his death!

About six months ago, the dancer gave an interview to the Daily Mail in which he spoke of his imminent death. “[My dad] loved gardening and had a stroke while he was gardening. He lived to be 79, so if I follow my dad’s path, next year will be,” he prophesied. He almost hit the mark with that, because the juror died just three days before his 79th birthday.
One thing is crystal clear: Len’s passing leaves a huge void. “I will cherish the memory of our incredible adventures and hundreds of shows we did together, there will never be anyone like you, we will miss you,” said his DWTS colleague Bruno Tonioli ( 67 ) sadly reported to speak.
