Has this 80s pop star become first contestant to sign up for this year’s Strictly?

The singer is definitely going to give the others a run for their money

Matt Goss has reportedly been signed up for the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.

One half of Bros will be getting his dancing shoes on to compete for the famous glitterball trophy later in the year.

He appeared in the Christmas special back in 2013 with professional dancer Aliona Vilani, so we know he’s got moves.

An insider told The Sun: “Matt is an amazing coup for Strictly.

“Bosses were keen to sign him up after he impressed in the Christmas special and he will definitely be a favourite with viewers.

“He’s one of the best performers in music so he could go all the way and win it.”

There is no doubt that the 48-year-old star could lift the famous glitterball trophy!

It looks like Matt might be busy. Bros, who were around from 1986 to 1992 with hits such as When Will I Be Famous? and I Owe You Nothing, are back.

Matt’s twin brother Luke announced that they were reviving the band and will be taking to the stage again later this year.

Speaking about Strictly, the source also added: “It was a no-brainer to sign him up, he’s definitely going to be the eye-candy for the mums with his looks.

“He’s a massive sex symbol with a huge fan base across the world for both his music and his hunky looks so he will bring in even more viewers.”

The BBC however, haven’t yet confirmed the news, and a spokesman said: “We do not comment on speculation.”

That’s code for yes, isn’t it?
