Len Goodman’s wife: Meet Sue Barrett

Sue Barrett is the wife of former Strictly judge Len Goodman. She is a dance instructor and 20 years younger than her husband.

Len always spoke fondly of her, referring to her as “My Wonderful Sue” whenever she came up in conversation. Not much is known about Sue as she kept out of the spotlight.

Len Goodman and Sue Barrett started seeing one another ten years before their 2012 wedding.


They got married in a surprise ceremony, which only close friends were invited to and were told it was a “quiet Sunday lunch”.

Goodman wanted it to be a low-key affair, so they did not tell anyone except his 96-year-old mum as he did not want her to have a heart attack with the surprise.

Where is Sue Barrett now?

On April 24, 2023, Len Goodman passed away from bone cancer. He was 78 years old. Len lived out his retirement days with Sue at their home in Kent, where they ran their own ballroom dancing school.
