Strictly Come Dancing’s Sara Davies is paired up with Aljaž Škorjanec for the latest series of the dance competition. However, ahead of her dancing debut, she shared how she wished Len Goodman was still one of the judges on the show.

Yesterday, she took to Instagram to share a picture of Len in her stories.

Sara let her followers know her partner Aljaz had been catching up with the former Strictly head judge.

Alongside the snap of the pair on a video call, she wrote how hearing about him had “made her day”.

She penned: “Made my day when Aljaz told me this mornign he’d caught up with Len after training last night and he’s been asking how I was getting on!”(sic)

Sara then added: “I sooooo wish he was still a judge on the show!

“He’s just an absolute bit of class!”

Len was the head judge of the show from its inception in 2004 until 2016.

He was much-loved by viewers for his insight into the dances, as well as his reputation for giving sevens.

However, he exited the show after the 2016 Christmas Day special.

At the time, he said he wanted to hand over the head judge role to someone new.

Len was replaced by Shirley Ballas as head judge on the show.

The dancing star also opened up to the Radio Times about his exit.

Speaking in 2020, he said of his exit: “I do think it was the right time for me to leave because I’m done the show for 12 years and I couldn’t think of what else to say about the Viennese Waltz!

“I suppose I could have carried on until people wanted rid of me, but I was still quite popular, so that was good.”

Elsewhere, Aljaz and Sara have been hard at work training for this Saturday’s show.

Sara appeared on her Instagram this morning as she teased a bit about their routine.

She said: “I feel totally different this morning and I’ve worked out what it is.

“So the last couple of days when we’ve been doing training – I don’t want to give too much away.

“But the idea of the character this week is I’m supposed to be like the boss.

“You would think it would be really easy but I’ve really struggled with all the character stuff.”

However, she admitted after getting her nails done, she feels totally different about it.

She added: “I’ve got my red power nails on and I’m just like, ‘Yes!’”
