Ex-Strictly Come Dancing judge Len Goodman admits to smoking 'waccy baccy' in 1960s

The 73-year-old, who retired from the BBC show in 2016, revealed his dope-smoking past in a radio slot.

Len, who was Strictly’s head judge for 12 years and famed for his catchphrase ‘It’s a ten from Len’, said:: “In the Sixties I was a mod. We used to go down to Brighton on our scooters.

“I never got involved in the punch-ups. I stayed well clear.

“We used to camp up on Blackrock camping site and spend the weekend, oh yes, with a bit of wacky baccy.”

He insisted: “It did me no harm — it could have done me some harm — I don’t know.”

Len also revealed he was banned from choosing the DIY Kama Sutra book for his 2011 Desert Island Discs appearance after chiefs ruled it inappropriate.

He was invited onto the show with Kirsty Young in 2011 and as a celebrity castaway was asked to choose eight songs, a book and a luxury item.

Len revealed his cheeky past as part of the first celebrity themed radio station, LOVE Len Goodman, to be made exclusively available on Amazon’s Alexa devices.
