UTTERING his stock expression "seven" on arrival, Strictly Come Dancing chief judge Len Goodman wowed the crowds at a St Albans bookshop last week.

Len was at Waterstone's in St Peter's Street to sign copies of his autobiography Better Late Than Never and the Strictly Come Dancing annual.

But he refused to be drawn on who he thought would win the TV dance competition which is down to the last three contestants.

Len arrived at the shop at 5pm last Wednesday and was still there at 8pm signing reserved copies of his book and joining staff for a sandwich. The store sold 120 copies and a number of annuals as well.

A spokesperson for Waterstone's said: "I think it was probably the busiest book signing we have ever had in the shop. He came in and just cried out 'seven'.

"He talked about his other signings and said nowhere else was going to be as much fun as this. He also took his time with people and everyone commented how nice it was.
