I was visited by the spirit of my late mum after being axed from Strictly, says Matt Goss


STRICTLY star Matt Goss has revealed he got cha cha chills with a visit from his mum’s ghost.

Carol, who died in 2014, came to him last weekend after he was voted off the show.

Bros singer Matt told SE: “The night after I left the series I didn’t want to watch the show and I just wanted to be in my own bubble.

“I was getting streams of messages from people and that night I just lay in the dark listening to music.

“A bag fell off a shelf. And then I said, ‘Mum is that you? If it’s you, can the music stop?’.

“And then the music stopped. Then it came back on and did it again.

“It happened about five times.

“I knew it was my mum. It was unbelievable and this incredible, warm feeling came over me.

“It was a beautiful thing and I knew it was a sign everything would be OK.”

But Matt, 54, who has re-recorded his single The Beautiful Unknown with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra as a Christmas single, admitted he found his experience on the BBC show “uncomfortable.”

Matt, partnered with pro Nadiya Bychkova, 33, said: “It was much more difficult than I thought it would be. It was pretty uncomfortable.”

Last night saw comedian Jayde Adams eliminated after competing against CBBC’s Molly Rainford, 21, in the dance-off.

Jayde, 37, partnered with pro Karen Hauer, 40, said: “This has been the best thing I have ever done in my life and I will carry it to my grave.”
