Matt Goss 'secretly pursuing Coronation Street's Kate Ford'

A romance could be blossoming

Bros star Matt Goss is reportedly keen to take Coronation Street star Kate Ford out on a date.

It's been said that the 50-year-old singer has secretly been pursuing the actress with direct messages on Twitter.

Matt has apparently had a soft spot for the 42-year-old soap star for a while and has been 'liking' her Instagram pictures.

A source told The Sun: "Matt has made no secret that he’s an eligible bachelor and wants to find love again.

"He’s a fan of Corrie and has always had a bit of a soft spot for Kate so decided to slide into her direct messages on Twitter. They haven’t met up yet but there’s definitely a connection between them."

The insider claimed that Kate - who plays Tracy Barlow on the cobbles - also reminds Matt of his ex, Melanie Sykes.

They added: "Matt is hoping he can persuade Kate to go on a date some time in the near future. He certainly has a type given just how similar she looks to his ex Mel."

Matt had a romance with presenter Mel in the nineties, which lasted five years.
