His new bride, Sue Barrett, 47, is a dance teacher who runs his school and the couple have been together for more than a decade.Goodman told the Daily Mail: "I've had a marvellous day and now my gorgeous Sue is the new Mrs Goodman.

"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."

The pair were married at Mosimann's private dining club in London.Goodman first married in his late 20s to dance partner Cherry Kingston. After divorcing, he had a son, James, with long-term partner Lesley.
