The star wore a waterproof blue coat with the hood up as he addressed the camera.

"Grim day feeding up," he announced, before turning to show his beloved sheepdog Bob, who was sitting in the back of the vehicle, relaxing on a bed of straw.

The 42-year-old said: "Look who's all nice and warm, got a nice straw bottom, he's had his breakfast and he's got a perfect view."

Matt then panned the camera to show a sweeping view of a field of sheep.

Even despite the fact that it was pouring with rain, it was clear that he lives in a very scenic part of the world, filled with lush greenery as far as the eye could see!

The star captioned the sweet clip: "Truck Life."

The dad-of-two lives on a smallholding in Hertfordshire with his wife Nicola Mooney and their children: Luke, 12, and Molly, ten.

Family life is incredibly important to the star – so much so, he decided to leave his role on The One Show after nine years in order to spend more time with his loved ones.
