What did Alex Jones say about Matt’s comeback?

Alex told viewers about Matt’s return at the end of last night’s show.

Signing off, she said: “We will be back tomorrow with Matt Baker and his family, to see what he’s been up to a year since he left this very sofa.”

It’s not the first time Matt has returned since he left, though.

He took part in the show’s Rickshaw Challenge in November last year, raising money for Children In Need.
