Matt Goss capitalizes on Strictly fame as he announces plans for new movies, musicals and homewares
So, what is the Goss on Matt from Bros?
Is it possible to have too much of a good thing? I’m only asking because Matt Goss seems to be geared towards total cultural domination.
Goss, who rose to prominence in the 1980s pop group Bros, is one of the most anticipated stars of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing, which kicks off Friday night.

While it’s common to use Strictly as a springboard for another project, the former pop star seems to be taking things to a whole new level.
A comeback single, Are You Ready, was released last month but failed to break the Top 40.
Now Matt is taking steps towards an acting career – as is twin brother and bandmate Luke, who appeared in more than 50 films after Bros.

Matt stars alongside Dame Joan Collins and Craig Fairbrass in The Stork Club, a gangster drama set in the 1970s.
“I’m playing a very sinister character, something I’ve always wanted to do,” he said.
The film is being produced by Jayney Mackie, who collaborated on the 2020 rom-com The Loss Adjuster, starring… Luke Goss!
Ambitious Matt is also keen to produce a jukebox musical about Bros, given the success of movies like Rocket Man.
In addition, he wants to launch a range of homeware and clothing: Goss instead of Goop.
“I’ve been around people who have made great brands in my life, and for me that’s the dream. It’s not just about financial gain. It’s something I can leave behind, as well as my music.’
Strictly Come Dancing launches Friday at 7pm on TBEN One
