Matt Goss is capitalizing on Strictly fame as he announces plans for new films, music and home goods

So what does Matt from Bros think?

Can there be too much of a good thing? Just asking since Matt Goss seems intent on total cultural domination.

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 night.

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.

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

Matt is now making strides towards an acting career – just like twin brother and teammate Luke, who has appeared in more than 50 films since Bros.

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

“I play a very sinister character, which is something I’ve always wanted to do,” he said.

The film is being produced by Janie Mackie, who worked on the 2020 romantic comedy The Loss Adjuster, starring… Luke Goss!

Ambitious Matt is also keen to produce a jukebox musical for Bros after witnessing the success of films such as Rocket Man.

He also wants to launch a range of home goods and clothing: Goss, not Goop.

“All my life I’ve been around people who create great brands, and for me that’s the dream. It’s not just about financial gain. It’s something I can leave behind, and so can my music.

Strictly Come Dancing starts on Friday at 7pm on BBC One
