Best known as the precocious judge of the hugely popular television show Dancing with the Stars , Len Goodman has achieved world-wide fame for his astounding dancing acumen and his irrepressible charm. Born in London's rough and tumble East End, Len spent his formative years helping his father run a fruit and vegetable stand. He dreamt of becoming a professional soccer player and came close to making the grade before he broke his foot. His doctor recommended ballroom dancing as an aid to his recovery, and Len soon found a new calling in the world of dance. With his dance partner and wife Cheryl, Len won numerous championships before retiring. It was not until after he turned 60 that he achieved national acclaim on television. Funny and heart warming, this is the story of a man who succeeded against all odds and never gave up on his dreams.
