A little bit about Matt

Matt was born in Portsmouth on 27th December 1985. He has never had a birthday present that hasn't been wrapped in Christmas paper.

He started his broadcasting career as a presenter for CBBC.

He went on to become a celebrity interviewer for the gossip site HolyMoly.com, where he interviewed a range of celebrities including Sir Alan Sugar, Flo Rida and Spike from 911. Highlights included being cradled like a baby by Mr T, and uncovering Simon Cowell's secret past as a judger of dog shows.

TV work has included the Isle of Wight Festival for ITV2, T in the Park for the BBC and music show Freshly Squeezed for Channel 4, as well as being part of the T4 presenter line-up.

He joined Radio 1 in January 2010 to provide a round-up of celebrity news on Fearne Cotton's Friday show, before being drafted in to cover Sara Cox's Sunday show while she was on maternity leave. During his time on Sunday mornings he secured himself a date with Carol Vorderman, unsuccessfully attempted to solve a Rubik's Cube and tracked down a variety of forgotten popstars.

You can now hear Matt every Saturday and Sunday at 10am.
