Bros star Matt Goss has ‘slid into the DMs of Coronation Street actress Kate Ford’ in the hope of sparking up a romance.

The musician, 50, is said to have ‘always had a soft spot’ for the soap star, 42, and is now using Instagram to try and woo the object of his affection. 

The When Will I Be Famous? singer is a ‘fan of Corrie’ – in which Kate has played Weatherfield schemer Tracy Barlow on and off since 2002 – and has been telling friends the actress reminds him of his ex-girlfriend Mel Sykes, 48.
