Len Goodman leaving 'Dancing with the Stars' after next season

Len Goodman, an original judge of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars," is leaving the show after the 20th season, premiering this spring. "Next year, I'm not going to do the flying backwards and forwards," the UK native said at a British news conference for the show "Strictly Come Dancing," reported "I'm not going to do the American show . . . I've got to have a bit of time off," Goodman, 70, said. "I've got my wife, I've got my son, my mother is still alive and she's in hospital -- I've had virtually no time to go and visit her. So, I just need a bit of time off to get on with a normal life."
