Matt is a BBC presenting favourite. While he still hosts Countryfile, he stunned viewers when he announced he was quitting The One Show in December.

Speaking from The One Show's sofa, he announced: "At this time of year, I like to take stock and reflect.

"The One Show has been a massive part of my life for almost a decade now and I have loved every second of being a part of it. But I am going to be leaving this green sofa in the spring.

"Of course I'd like to thank Alex [Jones], who I've shared this sofa with for all these years.

"And the teams of people who work on this show all around the UK, the ones who you do not get to see; the researchers, the producers, the studio crew, everyone that makes this show feel like a massive family.

"And I'm going to miss you all very much indeed. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart."
