Who Matt Goss's girlfriend is as 'King of Las Vegas' stars in Strictly

Eighties heartthrob Matt Goss is currently starring in Strictly Come Dancing - and is one of the favourites to take the Glitterball trophy. Matt was the lead singer of Bros, who sold 16 million records worldwide, and has since gone on to have success with five studio albums and a hugely popular residency in the United States, first at the Palms Casino Resort, in Las Vegas, Nevada, and then, after rave reviews, the star moved the show to the city's world famous Caesars Palace.

His massive success over a decade led him to be crowned the The New King of Las Vegas by fellow residents. He was also given the keys to the Las Vegas Strip, and August 8 was declared 'Matt Goss Day' in the city.

But in 2014, when his beloved mother, Carol, died, he began to become a recluse, and suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), ploughing through the grief by continuously working, he told the Mirror.

"I knew in a somewhat unhealthy way that I was becoming reclusive in my world because it was shows, concerts, touring," he said. "And then I was retreating far too heavily, certainly on the 11th year of my residency. Strictly called, and it was one of those things: I'm either going to go back to London and go to a reclusive place, or I'm going to come and be really happy and meet people like Fleur [East], who is so full of life and so kind."

Matt is dating jeweller and model Chantal Brown. However, finding love has not been plain sailing for the Strictly star. He revealed in the past that he had been banned from a dating site because people did not believe it was him.

During a BBC Radio 5 Live interview, he said: "I got kicked off because they said, 'We don't think Matt Goss would appreciate you imitating him'. I was too embarrassed to say, 'No, it's me, it's actually me. I can show you my stats, you know – a naked picture, anything you need'."

On his girlfriend, he told the Daily Mail: "She is sensitive, kind and makes me laugh. Chantal is very supportive. She wants me to go smash it [Strictly] and she is going to come and watch." The two now plan to move back to the UK from the USA, he added.

Chantal is the ex-wife of former EastEnders actor Paul Nicholls. Matt has previously been in relationships with Martine McCutcheon and Melanie Sykes.
