ChildrenNot known


Len Goodman and Sue Goodman never had a child of their own. Len married his former dance partner Cherry Kingston when he was just 28 years old. In his autobiography, Better Late Than Never, he revealed that it was like a “dancing marriage” that lost love elsewhere and didn’t have the spark of love.

After the two broke up and their marriage failed for a long time, Goodman had another long-term partner. According to what he mentioned in his autobiography, the name of the new girl in his life was Lesley. He stated that she was the first woman he had ever fallen in love with.

Len Goodman was only 36 when he found out his new partner Lesley was pregnant. With no sign of marriage, the couple gave birth to a boy, James William Goodman, in 1981. Len told the Daily Mail he is still as unhappy with his life as he should have been.

Unfortunately, he got to the point where being with Lesley wasn’t as satisfying anymore as she couldn’t take being with him and he couldn’t continue the relationship. Speaking of children, James Goodman, Len’s only son, is now a married man with a wife, Sophie Goodman, and two children – Alice and Dan.
