Len Goodman and Shirley Ballas

Well, it’s official. Strictly Come Dancing 2017 has found its new Head Judge – ‘Queen of Latin’ Shirley Ballas.


The British-born Ballroom and Latin champion will take Len Goodman’s seat on the Strictly panel alongside Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and Darcey Bussell.

And as Head Judge, the newcomer will also have the casting vote in the Dance Off when the show returns in autumn 2017.

But is she the right choice for the job? Or was there a more worthy candidate?
