Matthew began his career working for a local newspaper after graduating from Exeter University with a degree in English and Drama. By the age of 26, Matthew was working at The Sun’s ‘Bizarre’ showbiz desk. Two years later, he left The Sun to help develop a new programme for SKY with Richard Littlejohn.
It was here that Matthew gained his first television role. The Richard Littlejohn show provided Matthew with a fabulous career opportunity, reporting for the show with news packages and entertaining features. Once the show finished a year later, Fleet Street offered Matthew a three-month stint on the Today newspaper.
