This Morning star Matthew Wright and his ‘controversial’ hair were back on the show today to go through the biggest current affairs talking points.
But many viewers just wanted to talk about the broadcaster’s hair. Again.
Matthew has been sporting a ‘business at the front, party at the back’ look for some time.
Now he’s switched it up a bit. The former tabloid journalist started the grow a mullet last year.
It appears to have enjoyed a bit of a spurt – Matthew’s tail looked a good four inches this morning.
And he’d manoeuvred it into a plait – a handy skill to have as a dad to a toddler daughter!
It was in serious danger of distracting viewers from the show’s discussions…
Anyone else just watching Matthew Wright’s rat tail go up and down or is it just me #ThisMorning

Good-humoured Matthew has already acknowledged it’s not to everyone’s taste, but viewers are calling for him to take a pair of scissors to his tail!
When is Matthew Wright going to get rid of his rats tail?😀

Matthew has previously addressed his hair on the show after his mullet first made an appearance and divided viewers.
He explained that he’d been cutting his own hair since the first lockdown in March 2020.
Eamonn Holmes was discussing himself sporting a mullet in the 80s – when he said it “was a thing”.
The presenter said: “We read today that it’s making a comeback for 2021, I can prove this with Mr Matthew Wright.”
Matthew said: “Cutting edge of fashion for the first time in my life.”
He then turned around to show off the back of his hair.
He said: “It’s coming along.”
When asked how long he’s been growing it, Matthew revealed: “I started cutting my own hair at the beginning of lockdown, mid-March.
Cutting edge of fashion for the first time in my life.
“So this is nine and a half months.”
Eamonn joked: “It’s like a tail really isn’t it?” to which Matthew said: “A rat’s tail really.”
Ruth asked Matthew what his wife Amelia thought of his new hair and he admitted she “hates it”.
