Because everything comes back to politics at the moment, Len’s departure made it into David Cameron’s final ever PMQs, as Jeremy Corbyn suggested that the departing Prime Minister could fill the seat vacated by Len.
‘I’ve got one rumour that I want him to deal with,’ Corbyn said. ‘There’s a rumour going round that his departure has been carefully choreographed so he can slip seamlessly into the vacancy created this morning on Strictly by Len Goodman’s departure. Is that his next career?’
David Cameron denied the rumours by saying he ‘didn’t have a paso doble’ – although bookmakers are offering odds of 5000-1 on the former PM taking over where Len leaves off in 2017.
