Matt Goss capitalises on Strictly fame as he announces plans for movie

Is it possible to have too much of a good thing? I only ask, as Matt Goss seems set on total cultural domination.

So, what’s the Goss on Matt from Bros?

Goss, who found fame in 1980s pop group Bros, is one of the most anticipated stars of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing, which starts on Friday evening. 

A comeback single, Are You Ready, was released last month, but failed to trouble the Top 40. 

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.

Now Matt is taking steps towards an acting career — just like twin brother and bandmate Luke, who post-Bros has appeared in more than 50 films.

‘I play a very sinister character, which is something I have always wanted to do,’ he said.

Matt will star alongside Dame Joan Collins and Craig Fairbrass in The Stork Club, a gangster drama set in the 1970s. 

Ambitious Matt is also keen to produce a jukebox musical about Bros, having seen the success of films such as Rocket Man. 

The film is being produced by Jayney Mackie, who worked on the 2020 romcom The Loss Adjuster, which starred… Luke Goss!

‘I have been around people in my life who created great brands, and, for me, that is the dream. It’s not just about financial gain. It is something I can leave behind, as well as my music.’

Plus, he wants to launch a range of homeware and clothing: Goss rather than Goop.
