Strictly Come Dancing star Matt Goss dried tears after becoming it third celebrity to be eliminated from the show after the dreaded dance-off.

The Bros frontman, who was partnered with Nadiya Bychkova, was voted off the BBC One competition show after appearing against Kym Marsh and her pro partner Graziano Di Prima.

Asked about his time on the show, Matt said: ‘It’s an extraordinary experience, I’ve been in America for 25 years. Thank you judges for your openness, you have helped me in many ways, my posture – Anton, I am more aware of it.

‘This lovely lady next to me, a world champion with all that patience. I’m very honored to have danced with you guys and everyone who’s still around, I love you, go smash it guys.’

Nadiya said of her partner: ‘First of all, I’m so grateful that I got to teach and dance with a music icon. But more important than this, I had the privilege of getting to know Matt for who you really are. Not many people know you and you are a beautiful soul, a very kind person and a real gentleman.’

It was at this point that Matt became visibly emotional and began to wipe away his tears.

“I’m an emotional person,” he admitted. ‘I wish my mum was here and my sister was here but you really have the British public who have made me feel really welcome. Thank you for welcoming me back after 25 years.’

Matt lost his mother Carol to cancer in 2014. His sister, Carolyn, died in a tragic car accident in 1988.

Viewers were torn about Matt’s exit, with one fan writing: ‘Feel a bit sad that Matt Goss is going. He’s obviously shy and has been through a lot, so it would have been nice to see him come out of his shell a bit more.’

Echoing a similar sentiment, another said: ‘Oh Matt … you’ve made me cry. What a lovely guy.’

Matt and Kym performed their routines again in a bid to impress the judges, with Matt and Nadiya taking on the Jive to Paul McCartney‘s All Shook Up, while Kym and Graziano performed their heirloom Samba to Volare by the Gipsy Kings.

Afterwards, the judges voted on which couple they wanted to save, and everyone chose Kym and Graziano.

Craig Revel Horwood said: ‘I think both couples stepped it up a notch, I mean Matt, you went absolutely crazy in it, I loved it, and Kym, you were really amazing in it. But the couple I want to save is Kym and Graziano.’

Motsi Mabuse added: ‘Only from that dance I decided to save Kym and Graziano.’

The three votes meant that Kym and Graziano were safe and that Matt and Nadiya would leave the competition. When Shirley Ballas was asked who she would have saved, she also said Kym and Graziano.

Previously eliminated from the competition have been Kaye Adams and Richie Anderson.

While Matt has also found the experience challenging, he recently opened up about how it has helped him with a condition he has had since birth.

The 54-year-old was born with Poland syndrome, a ‘very rare’ condition characterized by tissue in the fingers and underdevelopment of chest muscles, according to NHS.

Matt explained that he has one pectoral muscle on the right side instead of two. The lower one is missing, but the upper one is fine and strong.’

During his career as a frontman, Matt said he used to ‘pose covering that side of my chest’, but now he plans to resume promotions after Strictly Come Dancing.

Talking to Daily mailsaid Matt: ‘My posture has improved since I was on Strictly.

‘I want to say to the judges, you have made me want to improve this and be proud of my attitude. I would like to thank them. It’s a journey for me – every week I get stronger.’

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 18.40 on BBC One.
