Married At First Sight UK’s Matt Murray has left fans stunned with a throwback picture of him taken before all his tatts and signature hair.
The 32-year-old barber has been the centre of a lot of drama recently, after leaving his new wife Gemma Rose for Whitney Hughes, who was married to Duka Cav.
After explosive rows and more drama than we could have imagined, Gemma and Duka chose to leave the experiment while Whitney and Matt begged to stay on as a new couple, although they weren’t too warmly received by the other newlyweds.
While it’s still unclear whether Whitney and Matt have remained strong as a couple outside of the experiment, both have gained a lot of attention on social media.
And some fans have found a resurfaced picture of Matt which shows a before-and-after pic of what he looked like before he was inked up and grew a beard.
Sharing side-by-side images of him now and him a few years ago, Matt had penned a motivational message on Instagram: ‘*The years pass, regardless of action or inaction* DO something Or don’t… I can’t tell you what to do I can tell you that you’ll be happier if you do! Do the f**king work on yourself first before you do the work for other people.’
The pictures have really thrown fans, with one writing: ‘What a transformation! love you on mafs, can see what a genuine down to earth guy you are.’
Others echoed: ‘What a transformation,’ while someone else simply commented: ‘Wow.’
This comes after rumours that Matt had appeared on Channel 4’s Naked Attraction in the past, which sees a host of unlucky-in-love singletons raring to go on a date, but in order to be a whisked away on a romantic dinner or drinks they must strip off, winning over a potential partner based purely on their physical appearance.
However, he quickly cleared things up on Twitter, replying to one viewer with: ‘I was in a back story for Naked attraction. I never got naked.’
Another viewer noticed that Matt wasn’t actually a contestant on the steamy show, but appeared in a VT as a friend.
Someone else confirmed: ‘Haha sorry he wasn’t a contestant! Just a friend of the girl that applied!’
Married At First Sight UK continues tonight at 9pm on E4.
