Why does Matt have no hair?

During a recent appearance on Loose Women, Matt told viewers why he can’t grow any hair.

He said that he had been involved in a car accident in Portugal aged four.

From then on, the trauma of the accident might have had caused him to suffer from alopecia – a condition that causes permanent hair loss.

He also described the moment the alopecia first started to kick in.

Matt said he woke up one morning and found a few strands of hair on his pillow and that his hair steadily fell out over the course of several months.
