Len Goodman is planning to be a tougher judge on the next series of 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 67-year-old ballroom expert is known for being one of the fairest judges on the BBC One talent show, but he is planning to reveal his nastier side when the programme returns to screens later this year.
Len has dished out some harsher criticism on the current series 'Dancing with the Stars' - the US version of the show, which also features Bruno Tonioli - and has enjoyed his new meaner persona.
A source told the Daily Mail newspaper: "Len is getting more like Simon Cowell every day. He has started to be loudly booed by the studio audience which has caused a lot of embarrassment. He was heckled during a recent show by fans, who called for him to be sacked after he criticised one of the couples. But Len is enjoying the new approach - it's spicing things up."
'Strictly Come Dancing' bosses are on the lookout for a new judge to join Len, Bruno and Craig Revel Horwood on the panel after Alesha Dixon left to join 'Britain's Got Talent'.
