Matt Goss serenades HELLO! readers as he shares 'unforgettable' Christmas memories
Although jet-setting singer Matt Goss will be spending much of the holidays hard at work serenading his devoted fans on stage, his upcoming reunion with twin brother and fellow Bros bandmate Luke has got him reflecting on his family this Christmas.
"My favourite Christmas song is The Christmas Song, but I also love other songs that my grandfather used to sing to us," he says, before crooning Nat King Cole's Unforgettable to our delight. "It's a beautiful song. It reminds me of my grandfather when I was growing up in Camberwell. He used to make the best roast dinner – good roast potatoes and white pepper."
And in between treating us to his favourite songs and spending extra time chatting and taking selfies with all the HELLO! team (he's certainly given us a few tips on finding the right light), Matt is keen to spread the festive cheer and help HELLO! 's campaign to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital and help keep families together this Christmas.
"If you can donate even just a little bit, it would mean the world to us, for Great Ormond Street," he says.
As for his own holiday traditions, life on the road means he can rarely plan too far in advance, but the friendly pop star always tries to put his loved ones first. "I travel a lot so sometimes at the last minute I come home, but if there's anyone in town that isn't with family or a loved one I make sure they're welcome at my home," he says.
"So I think my request would be at Christmas to remember the people in your life that you know who may not be with someone they love, invite them over so that they can also have a beautiful Christmas."
And we hope that you will join Matt and HELLO! by supporting this very worthy cause. We all like to be with our loved ones this time of year. For the families of patients at Great Ormond Street Hospital, this is especially true.
With your support, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity could help fund family accommodation so mums, dads, brothers and sisters can stay close by, or help fund the creation of bigger rooms in new hospital wards so parents of the most seriously ill children can stay by their bedside 24 hours a day.
The charity also funds play specialists so that children can enjoy some festive fun despite going through very difficult times, and funds research and equipment that will enable the hospital to find new cures and save more lives.
Every donation to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity will help keep families together this Christmas. And be sure to check back tomorrow to find out which of our wonderful celebs will be popping out from door nubmer two!
