The 20th season of Strictly Come Dancing will debut on September 23. After a two-year absence due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the show has returned. One of the Strictly Come Dancing competitors is 53-year-old musician Matt Goss, who made headlines in 2016 after reconnecting with his brother Luke Bros after 25 years and singing for their band ‘Bros’. Anton, Shirley, Craig and Motsi will all return as judges, while Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly will serve as presenters. Strictly Come Dancing is a dance reality show in which celebrities perform ballroom dancing with professional dancers.
According to the official Strictly Come Dancing synopsis:
“As the Bafta Award-winning program returns to BBC One, Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman will be hitting the red carpet for the class of 2019. The star-studded lineup will then make their way to the Strictly ballroom for the first time, excited to learn which professional dancer they will be matched with in their quest for the coveted Glitter Ball trophy.”
Matt Goss of Strictly Come Dancing made £10 million on a European tour with his brother Luke.
Matthew Weston Goss is a musician and songwriter. He was the main lead singer of the 1980s pop group Bros, which included his twin brother Luke on drums. He is also a solo musician with five studio albums to his credit. Nevertheless, he wrote the theme song for Nigel Lithgow’s So You Think You Can Dance. Moreover, his band was known as the prototypical boy band of the 80s. However, it all came to an end when they fell apart in a lot of debt and internal conflict. They divorced three years later when Luke informed Matt:
“I’m done. It’s not fun anymore.”
However, events took a different turn. When Luke called Matt 25 years later, the schism between the two brothers was mended. Three months after the reunion, Matt and Luke reformed Goss Bros after meeting at a Hollywood restaurant. Tickets to their reunion performance at O2 in London sold out within seven seconds of news of their reconciliation.
Additionally, in an interview with Mirror, the Strictly Come Dancing contestant said:
“It’s fair to say we didn’t get along and didn’t talk for a long time,” she says.
He went on to say:
“I must confess that it was all extremely difficult and very personal.” The handshake changed everything. Luke is my best buddy again.”
Matt then discussed the similarities between the two brothers:
“We were born on the same day, grew up together and went to the same school.”
He then said:
“We were in the same band then.” We essentially had one identity. It was exaggerated.”
Additionally, although they lived in the Los Angeles area, they rarely saw each other after the band broke up as Luke pursued a career as an actor and appeared in films such as Blade II while Matt pursued a successful solo career. But when their beloved mother Carol died of cancer in 2014, the tensions in their relationship began to relax. Strictly Come Dancing launches on BBC One on September 23 at 7pm ET.
