REVEALED: Bros star Matt Goss’ new girlfriend Chantal Brown is the ex-wife of EastEnders hunk Paul Nicholls
Matt Goss’ new girlfriend has been revealed as the ex-wife of former EastEnders hunk Paul Nicholls.
The singer, 53, revealed last month that he had found love with jeweller girlfriend Chantal Brown, praising her for being ‘funny and not obsessed with social media in any way.’
Now MailOnline can reveal that Chantal has experience being in a high-profile relationship, as she was previously married to soap star Paul for seven years.

The pair first met in 1997 when Chantal was dating one of Paul’s friends and then began dating themselves in 2005.
The couple tied the knot three years later in an intimate ceremony near their home in Hampstead, north London, with Paul saying of his bride: ‘I don’t even look at other women now. She’s my soulmate.’
At the time Chantal was working as a model and was signed by Kate Moss’s agency Storm, starring in adverts for Oil of Olay and Cornetto ice-cream.
The pair then divorced in 2015 and Paul has remained tight-lipped on his love life since.

Chantal faded out of public life following their divorce, before she was spotted on a date with Matt in October.
The Bros frontman, who counts Melanie Sykes, Rebecca Ferguson and Martine McCutcheon as former flames, then confirmed he was in a relationship in March.
The singer who dumped his last girlfriend as she was too obsessed with her phone, said about his new relationship: ‘It is great, it feels nice’.
It comes after Matt confessed he was blocked from a dating platform following accusations that he was a catfish.
During a recent BBC Radio 5 interview, he said: ‘I got kicked off because they said, “We don’t think Matt Goss would appreciate you imitating him.”
‘I was too embarrassed to say, “No, it’s me, it’s actually me. I can show you my stats, you know – a naked picture, anything you need.”
‘I didn’t have the guts to go, “I’m kind of desperate, I’m trying to find someone here.”‘
