Spencer Matthews apologises for ‘wooden performance’ in car-crash GMB role

Spencer Matthews has apologised for his self-confessed "wooden performance" during his car-crash GMB presenting role.

The former Made In Chelsea star stepped in for showbiz reporter Richard Arnold while he was on holiday.

Speaking about Love Island’s Amber Davies starring in a West End, fellow reality TV star Spencer said: "It seems we’re all moving up in the world."

But Good Morning Britain viewers thought he looked like a ‘rabbit in the headlights’ as he struggled to find his feet.

Some claimed it was the ‘worst presenting’ they had ever seen – and Spencer did not argue with them.


Spencer posted a snap of himself on GMB on Instragram and apologised to his followers.

He said: "Such a huge amount of respect for people who regularly present live television – it’s a skill and it’s not easy.

"Had my first go this morning on @gmb and it’s safe to say that it didn’t go so well … Apologies for my lack of experience and wooden performance. I’ll loosen up and get better with time, hopefully!"

Spencer was clearly reading off a teleprompter and found it hard to improvise his lines.

In one of the most awkward moments. host Kate Garraway joked about Harper Beckham dressing like Anna Wintour.

She said: "Imitation is the best form of flattery and all that."


Spencer simply replied: "Absolutely."

There were a few awkward seconds before he continued with the next lines on the teleprompter.

Even veteran host Richard Madeley found it hard to get a response from Spencer.

Good Morning Britain viewers were not very supportive of Spencer.

Taking to Twitter , one viewer said: "Spencer looks like a Rabbit caught in the headlights"

"How on earth did Spencer Matthews get through the application process? #autocue," added another.

A third said: "Think Spencer Matthews has just proved most reality stars don’t have talent ! That was the worst presenting I’ve ever seen !"
