Len Goodman is retiring his paddle. The Dancing with the Stars judge has announced the upcoming 20th season will be his last.
"Next year, I'm not going to do the flying backwards and forwards—I'm not going to do the American show...I've got to have a bit of time off," Goodman told Digital Spy while promoting his U.K series Strictly Come Dancing. "Next year is their 10th year; it's the 20th series of the show. So, I think that's a nice place to stop."

Goodman may not be the only veteran of the show to exit. Earlier this year, pro dancer Cheryl Burke told TVGuide.com it was likely her last season.
