In an appearance on Lorraine last year he said: "I've lost some weight, I needed to take the edge off, because I put on a lot of weight in lockdown."

"I just had to do something about it," he added, to which Lorraine said: "Yes, just not eat as much and move around a wee bit more, that's kind of what you have to do."

Matt said: "I've still got a bit of a tum, I've got a little bit of a tum, I'm not a skinny Minnie."
