What has Matt Goss said about being on Strictly?

On August 8, 2022, Matt revealed that he is to take part in Strictly while appearing on an episode of This Morning with his brother Luke.

Speaking about signing up on the show, he explained that it was so under wraps that he even had his own nickname for producers to use to make sure it wasn't exposed.

He said: "I’ve been asked to do it before but I think honestly, for me where I am in my life, 11 years in Vegas, all the venues I’ve played – I want to just get out of my own way, let go a little bit and have some fun.

"I’m quite shy off stage, I’m gonna have to face all those demons and just learn."

He added: "I’m sure I’m gonna get a hard time now and then, but I’m going to do my best."

This won't be the first time Matt has appeared on the show, having performed in the Christmas special in 2013 where he danced alongside professional Aliona Vilani.

He also appeared a year later, where he sang White Christmas.
