His mother, Carol, sadly passed away after being diagnosed with lung cancer in 2014. Speaking to The Mirror, he revealed that while the tragic death of his mother left him with PTSD, it eventually reunited Matt with his brother Luke after years of being estranged.

"When you lose your mum, emotions are high and all your nerve endings are broken. I have to say it broke us a little bit," he said. "Then I got a call from my brother's wife Shirley. Me and Luke just jumped on the phone and started talking.

"It was a couple of years after mum passed. I realised, there and then, that Luke is the love of my life."
