Who is Matthew Jameson?

Matthew Jameson, 39, is a senior charity worker from Leeds who experienced a break-up seven months before joining the show.

He said he applied to the show to find a partner he can build a life and start a family with.

Matthew used to work in the corporate world until his dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2004.

He was inspired to quit his job and work for a charity to help others who have cancer.

In his spare time Matthew enjoys singing in a choir and performs in a Take That tribute band.
