On Sunday (16th October) we said goodbye to another contestant. This week, it was Bros singer Matt Goss and Kym Marsh in the dreaded dance-off and unfortunately, Matt failed to impress the judges with his Jive to All Shook Up by Paul McCartney and was sent home.

The singer spoke exclusively to to share the memories he will be taking with him from the experience.

He said: “I think for me, there's a certain tenacity and fortitude, coming back home after 25 years, coming straight into this experience. There's been a couple of moments where I just wanted to pack it in. But in honour of my mother, my sister, my family, a brother, Luke, my career….Strictly is a beautiful TV show, it's a beloved TV show in Britain. And I'm honoured to be on it.”

Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday on BBC One at 6:40pm.
