Favourite... tipple?

Gin and Tonic.


At the moment, Stollen cake. I like cake. Or a box of Celebrations, they go down well don't they?


An old song 'The Way You Look Tonight' (Cue Len singing to us...!).


Oh, the Foxtrot!


There's a few, but I'll go with The Godfather trilogy.

Holiday destination?

Anywhere in Britain. Come on, you can't beat it!


My son when he was a baby.

Christmas Gift?

I can't put my finger on anything that I would say is my favourite. When I was seven I was given a toy gun that you put talcum powder in and it comes out as smoke. That was memorable.

Member of The Saturdays?

Well I'd have to pick Frankie... only because she's the only one I can think of!

Cockney phrase?

Boat race. Face. As in 'look at her boat'.

Fellow Strictly judge?

Oh, I couldn't. I truly love them all. They're terrific.

Strictly moment from over the years?

When Bruno Tonioli fell off his chair. That was pretty fabulous!

Strictly contestant from over the years?

The one who shook me the most was Abbey Clancy. I really felt she wouldn't be much good and she was brilliant!
