‘Finally a real celebrity!’ Strictly Come Dancing fans in frenzy over eighth announcement

Singer-songwriter, musician and actor Matt Goss is the eighth celebrity confirmed to be taking part in Strictly Come Dancing 2022, which will kick off next month. As fans have reacted negatively to the current line-up, many praised the fact there was finally “solid booking” for the BBC competition.

Matt said: “I’m extremely nervous and excited, but I’m optimistic because I’m very supple from the knees down.”

The music legend has enjoyed mega success as the front man of BROS, with their debut album Push going platinum seven times.

It remained on the UK top ten music charts for an astonishing 54 weeks.

With continued success as a solo artist, Matt is about to release his solo album, The Beautiful Unknown.

On Monday’s This Morning, Matt was exclusively revealed as a contestant on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.

Matt told hosts Josie Gibson and Craig Doyle: “I’m excited, I’m nervous.

“You have the conversation and then you go about your day and you think, ‘I’ve got to dance.’

“I’m eating everything that’s favourable to Spandex. I’ve got to make sure it’s alright, I’m excited.”

He added: “I’ve been almost reclusive. I come in [to the country], I work and go back to America.

“I just thought, ‘You know what, it’s time for me to come home, just do something completely out of my comfort zone’.

“I’m quite shy off stage. I just have to face all those demons and just learn.”

This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV.
