While doing so, the former The One Show presenter also took the opportunity to share exciting news from his family farm.

One fan commented: "We have a chicken farm behind our house, could be a bit noisy later! Wonderful show last week Matt, a joy to watch, so looking forward
to this week’s show," and another wrote: "The hens can come out to play this is good news and thanks to the poultry farmers for their help in keeping all the chickens safe."

Matt's smallholding in the Chilterns looks totally idyllic and he lives with his wife Nicola and their children Luke and Molly.

Inside the family's farmhouse, the décor is kept rustic and cosy with a wood burner and exposed bricks in the lounge and unique vaulted ceilings. 

For a while, Matt returned to live on his family farm in Durham after his mum suffered an accident.

Speaking to the Metro at the time, he revealed: "I'd resigned from The One Show to be with my family more and when lockdown began I was working from home on my production company, when my dad rang and said, 'Your mum's had this really nasty accident in the sheep pens and is in hospital."

"She was knocked over by sheep and smashed her leg so badly she needed a knee replacement. My wife and I took the kids, Molly and Luke, up to the farm in the Durham Dales to help out."
