Actress Jennifer Grey to be guest judge on Strictly Come Dancing

Dirty Dancing actress Jennifer Grey is to be a guest judge for one weekend in November on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.

Grey will be stepping into Len Goodman’s role as the head judge takes a week off. Last year she was crowned the winner of Dancing With The Stars, which airs on ABC in America, with her dance partner Derek Hough. The BBC has confirmed that Len will only be off for one week (5th and 6th November) but will return on 12th November. Len is also head judge on the American version of the popular dancing show.

“I am delighted to be involved. I so look forward to making the pilgrimage to the birthplace of the greatest dance show, the mecca of spray tans and tangos, and to sit in for the great and pernickety Len Goodman.” – Jennifer Grey on her new role.

Strictly Come Dancing continues this weekend on BBC One.
