Dancing with the Stars judge Len Goodman is a married man!

Goodman wed his girlfriend of 10 years, Sue Barrett, in London on Sunday in a surprise ceremony, People reports.

The ceremony was witnessed by 30 of the couple’s closest friends and family. The 68-year-old judge gushed to Daily Mail, “I've had a marvelous day, and now my gorgeous Sue is the new Mrs. Goodman.”

He adds, “Did I pickle my walnuts? Of course I did! I wanted it to be a low-key affair, so we didn't tell anyone except my 96-year-old mum as I didn't want her having a heart attack with the surprise.”

Goodman and Barrett were joined by professional dancer Anton du Beke, who also had no idea about the wedding. According to the report, friends and family were under the assumption they were meeting the couple for lunch.

“We've had a marvelous day, with marvelous food surrounded by all my dearest friends – and it didn't go on for too long so it didn't get boring!” Goodman informed.

The bride and her groom wore blue for the nuptials, and followed with a reception in a lovely restaurant. Goodman previously gushed of his bride, “She's gorgeous and makes me very happy – though she likes to stay out of the limelight. It was a complete surprise to my friends and family today and we've had a fabulous time.”
