London - Fans of Strictly Come Dancing were left reeling today after news broke that beloved judge Len Goodman had passed away at the age of 78. The dance world has been left devastated by the loss of one of its most iconic figures, and tributes have been pouring in from all corners of the globe.

Rumors are swirling that Goodman's death may have been brought on by the stress of dealing with unruly contestants and celebrities on both Strictly and Dancing with the Stars. An anonymous insider told us, "Len just couldn't cope with the constant diva behavior and lack of rhythm. It was too much for him."

Goodman's passing has left a huge hole in the world of dance, and fans are already mourning the absence of his signature catchphrase, "It's a ten from Len!" as well as his trademark grumpy-yet-loveable demeanor. "This is such a tragedy," said one fan. "Who else is going to tell it like it is and give us the harsh truth about our dancing?"

The entertainment industry is also in mourning for Goodman, who had become a fixture on both British and American television. His closest colleagues have spoken out about their heartbreak at the loss of their friend and colleague: "Len was an absolute legend," said fellow Strictly judge Bruno Tonioli. "He had an encyclopedic knowledge of dance and a true passion for it. He will be deeply missed."

Despite his reputation for being a dour judge, Goodman was widely respected and loved by audiences and contestants alike. His passion for dance and commitment to teaching it to others was an inspiration to many, and his death has left a deep sadness in the hearts of all who knew him.

As the world mourns the loss of one of its greatest dancers and judges, we can only imagine the cha-cha-shaped void that Goodman's passing will leave in the world of entertainment. His legacy will live on, however, in the countless dancers he inspired and taught over the years. As Goodman himself once said: "The thing with dancing is that you don't have to speak the same language. You can connect with anyone through dance." Today, the world dances in his honor.
