Matt Goss suffers from a rare health condition

Matt Goss, who was voted to stop Strictly Come Dancing at the weekend, has opened up about his rare health, and praised staff’s toughness for their appreciation.

Matt Goss opened up about living with a rare condition known as Poland syndrome, and thanked the wider Strictly Come Dancing team for their support and caution.

The Bros star, 54, broke into tears on Sunday as he became the latest celebrity to be voted off the show, after dancing with Kym Marsh.

Joss, who lives in London, spoke about the challenges he faced at the BBC dance show which improved his posture and confidence in his body.

The 1980s pop star suffers from a rare condition, known as Poland syndrome, in which individuals are born with underdeveloped or missing muscles, on one side of the body.

Matt recently said he has “one pectoral muscle on the right side instead of two. The bottom is missing, but the top is good and strong.”

The rare condition can affect posture and cause deformities of the chest, shoulder, arm, and hand.

Matt, who co-stars with Nadia Bychkova on the show, was twice at the bottom of the leaderboard, also narrowly avoiding being eliminated in the second week.

Joss admitted that participating in the long-running dance show has worked wonders on his self-esteem.

He said last week daily mail: “My situation has improved since becoming strict. I want to say to the judges, ‘You made me want to improve this and be proud of my situation.'”

“This is a journey for me – getting stronger every week,” he added.

Joss also praised the “very interested” Strictly Come Dancing costume team, which designs and creates all of the intricate costumes, on a weekly basis.

He said, “The costume team were relatively strangers at first but from the start they were always very nice and cuddly – it really impressed me.”

“It was one of my favorite things about the rigorous experience,” Joss added.

He went on to explain that the fashion department would have to make a tight-fitting jacket on the right side, balancing his left side.

“Skinny tailoring is good for me and the fashion is determined by the shape of my chest,” added Joss.

The 54-year-old musician has made it clear that he is just as capable as everyone else, and that his rare condition does not harm him in any way.

He continued that he intends to raise awareness of Poland syndrome, “I will look into creating some kind of charity to build trust, to show children with the syndrome that they can achieve everything in life.”

Meanwhile, many Strictly Come Dancing fans took to social media to complain about the “leak” of disqualified contestants, before the results came out, on Sunday.

The chiefs at Strictly Come Dancing are said to be on a quest to find the audience mole reveal on Twitter, which was voted celebrity Saturday night.

The 2021 jury of (LR) Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Shirley Ballas and Anton Du Beke is set to return for the 2022 Strictly Come Dancing series.

Sunday’s results show was filmed “live” after Saturday’s show, and the audience was sworn to secrecy, with all cell phones banned in the studio.

Many are now calling for the Sunday results show to be filmed on Sunday instead of Saturday, to avoid spoiling the show for fans, every week.
