He will present he BBC One Saturday teatime show which is the ‘brainchild’ of BBC Radio 1’s Matt Edmondson

Former Strictly Come Dancing head judge Len Goodman will return to TV screens on a new family game show called Partners In Rhyme.

Goodman, from Dartford, and known for his witty catchphrases while doling out feedback on Strictly, will present the BBC1 Saturday teatime programme, which will see contestants and celebrities team up to take part in comedy rounds based on rhyming clues.

Goodman, 72, said: “It’s time to rhyme with a whizz of a quiz. It’s a 10 from Len!”

Partners In Rhyme was the brainchild of BBC Radio 1 presenter and former Xtra Factor Live host Matt Edmondson, who is “ridiculously excited” about the programme, which airs later this year.

He added: “It’s the sort of show that I hope will have families screaming at the TV as they try and make sense of pigs in wigs, flowers with superpowers and Lorraine Kelly making jelly!”

Jo Wallace, commissioning editor for the BBC said: “I’m really happy to see Len back on BBC1 on Saturday nights where he belongs!”

Goodman bowed out of his role as head judge on Strictly after 12 years in 2016.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
