The BBC's Strictly Come Dancing is in full swing and we're now heading into Week 4.


Returning to the ballroom this weekend is musician Matt Goss, who'll be hoping to improve upon his recent scores.

Goss currently sits in the second to last spot on the Strictly Come Dancing 2022 leaderboard, after scoring just 21 points for his Viennese Waltz to Hold My Hand from Top Gun: Maverick.

The Strictly Come Dancing 2022 songs and dances have been revealed for this weekend, and Matt will be doing a Jive to All Shook Up by Paul McCartney along with his professional dance partner Nadiya Bychkova.

But will this dance be enough to help Matt climb the leaderboard?

Read on for everything you need to know about Matt Goss - one of the contestants in the Strictly Come Dancing 2022 line-up.

Matt is a singer and songwriter best known for being frontman of the band Bros alongside his twin brother Luke. The pair's first album Push went platinum seven times, remaining on the UK top ten music charts for an impressive 54 weeks. The brothers were also the subjects of a BAFTA-winning documentary titled Bros: After the Screaming Stops.

Matt has also enjoyed a successful solo career, with an award-winning stint in Las Vegas and his solo album The Beautiful Unknown released earlier this year.

Matt's announcement comes on 'Matt Goss Day' on 8th August, which falls on his late mother’s birthday.

Matt's Strictly journey


Week 1: Quickstep (5+5+5+5) = 20

Week 2: Samba (20+22) = 42

Week 3: Viennese Waltz (3+6+5+7) = 21

Goss and his professional partner Nadiya Bychkova scored half-marks on the Strictly Come Dancing 2022 leaderboard with their Quickstep in Week 1 - and, surprisingly, their nicest critique came from judge Craig Revel Horwood.

After Anton Du Beke complimented Goss on his "feet, timing, style, musicality", he added: "Unfortunately you looked like an unmade bed."

But usually sharp-tongued Horwood added: "They're all being really nasty. That was punchy. It was a really great routine."

What has Matt Goss said about joining Strictly 2022?

Speaking of joining the Strictly line-up, Matt said: “I’m extremely nervous and excited, but I’m optimistic because I’m very supple from the knees down.”

He also said after being unveiled on This Morning: "I’m excited. I’m nervous. You have the conversation and then you go about your day and you think, ‘I’ve got to dance.’ I’m eating everything that’s favourable to Spandex. I’ve got to make sure it’s alright, I’m excited.

“I’ve been almost reclusive. I come in [to the country], I work and go back to America. I just thought, ‘You know what, it’s time for me to come home, just do something completely out of my comfort zone' … I’m quite shy off-stage. I just have to face all those demons and just learn.”
