SPENCER Matthews is a reality TV star with royal connections, best known for being a Lothario during this time on Made In Chelsea.
Now officially Pippa Middleton’s brother-in-law and living with current girlfriend Vogue Williams, it looks like he’s turned a corner – here’s the lowdown on him as he stars on Channel 4’s Celebrity Hunted.
Who is Spencer Matthews and where does he come from?
Socialite Spencer is the son of landowner David and successful artist Jane Matthews.
His brother James Matthews is married to Pippa Middleton, and is the heir to a Scottish title, Laird of Glen Afraig, a glen located in the village of Cannich in the Highlands.
Tragically, Spencer’s oldest brother Matthew died in a mountaineering accident in 1999 on Mount Everest, just hours after becoming the youngest Briton to conquer the peak.
Reality star Spencer was put through a tip top education at Eton, and split his childhood between St Barths and Caunton Maon in Lincolnshire.
Spencer hasn’t just lived off his parents’ fortune – he once embarked on a career as a trader, which he juggled with being in Made Of Chelsea before quitting when the show took off.
What reality TV shows has Spencer Matthews been in?
In 2011, Spencer joined the cast of a structured reality TV show, Made In Chelsea, which follows the lives of affluent socialites from West London.
He remained on the show up until 2016, delighting fans with his womanising ways and witty repartee.
In 2012 he appeared at ‘the bachelor’ in the The Bachelor UK series 5, which saw him picked Khloe Evans to be his girlfriend. The romance ended a week after the show ended.
Then in 2015 he won a coveted spot on I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here but he was forced to leave after just three days, after he confessed to producers that he’d been taking Class C steroid medication in preparation for a charity boxing match that never went ahead, leading show staff to conclude it would be unsafe for him to stay.
Spencer took part in daredevil skiing show, The Jump in 2017 and managed to win the fourth series of the show, beating Olympian Louis Smith to the top spot.
Who is Spencer currently dating?
Spencer started dating his The Jump co-star Vogue Williams after meeting on the slopes.
In July 2017 The Sun revealed that the couple have moved in together and are still going strong despite Vogue not being invited to his brother’s and Pippa’s wedding.
Spencer previously had a long romance with Caggie Dunlop, which was documented on Made in Chelsea’s first three series.
Spencer briefly dated Geordie Shore’s Vicky Pattison and romanced model Morgane Robart.
