Strictly Come Dancing star, Matt Goss has revealed that he is been coerced to make the painful decision to split ways with his pet dog Reggie and leave him in the US to be able to participate on the show.
The 80s music icon, 53, said he wants to fly his French bulldog to the UK but is worried about how the dog would handle the long travel because of his breathing problems.
Matt told The Sun that because of his hectic schedule, he was unable to order Reggie a pet passport or ensure that he had the required vaccinations. As a result, he may have to wait months to be reunited with Reggie in the UK.
“Leaving Reggie in America has been tough. I know having him here will put a swing in my step on the Strictly stage. The problem in getting Reggie to the UK is logistics and there’s also quarantine. Reggie’s breed also have breathing difficulties so it may be difficult for him to travel in the hold or be in the hold for long periods.”
