Matthew Wright has explained the heartbreaking reason he decided to spend Christmas alone in the Caribbean, away from his wife and 11-month-old baby.
The TalkRadio host jetted to the Caribbean without his wife Amelia and their 11 month old daughter Cassady last month, this led to many negative reactions from fans, but the presenter has no given the reason behind his decision.
Appearing on This Morning on Tuesday, Matthew Wright admitted he made the choice to spend the festive season solo after struggling with his mental health.
He also revealed that it was his wife who urged him to take some time for himself, he said;
“I’ve had a lot of mental health issues really over the last year and a half. A friend’s suicide, problems at Channel 5, other personal problems, and there was a story written about me, a fake story about me losing my job just before Christmas, and it knocked me sideways. And Amelia just said, ‘What’s the point of you being here not sleeping?’ And she said, ‘Go away do something that’s good for you.’ And it was good for me.”
