Speaking to The Sun’s Fabulous magazine in February 2017, Matt revealed: “It’s still something I’m working on, and I think about sobriety every day. I can’t allow myself to go near anything that’s a danger, so it is constantly on my mind.

“Now I don’t drink, take drugs or painkillers. I don’t take anything because I’ve learned that I don’t act the same way as other people. If there’s something you can take too far, I’ll take it too far .”
