Strictly Latin

57 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 25 December 2012

Despite his portrayal on Strictly Come Dancing as the "ballroom king", Len's heart belongs to the Latin dances. In this episode, Strictly Latin, we samba, rumba, jive, paso doble and cha cha cha to some of his favourite tracks.

Memories include the time he taught his first samba class, realising too late he had taught both the men and women the backwards steps; the special present he received from Little Richard and of his "Boys' Night Out" with his Dad to see the Harlem Globetrotters.

And to accompany his stories, Len plays the music that really gets him swinging his hips and tapping his toes, including John Paul Young, Sergio Mendes and the Black Eyed Peas, Shakira, Tom Jones and Peggy Lee.
