The TV star’s sad news comes not long after he was slammed by viewers of This Morning for “criticising” the Queen.

On This Morning last month, the fact that the Queen has someone break her shoes in for her was discussed.

“Shut up Matthew. Stop criticising our Queen,” one viewer ranted at the time.

“And now he’s dissing the Queen?” another tweeted.
