SPENCER Matthews is a reality TV star with plenty of royal connections, best known for being a ladies’ man while he was on Made In Chelsea – but everything has changed for the new dad.
Here is what you need to know about him including his new reality show and when he got married to Vogue Williams…
Who is Spencer Matthews? What’s his background?
Socialite Spencer is the son of landowner David and successful artist Jane Matthews.
Born on August 6, 1989, Spencer is currently 31 years old.
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 Michael 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.
He later revealed that he is actually “northern at heart” because he was born in Sheffield.
The reality star recently revealed he was forced to hide in a vault inside a watch shop as it was smashed to pieces by thieves threatening staff with “huge hammers”.
What is Spencer Matthews’ net worth?
Spencer Matthews is thought to be worth around £2.9 million, according to Spears.
The star hasn’t just lived off his parents’ fortune though – he has made his own money since he started his career as a PR manager at posh London clubs, such as Movida.
He later embarked on a career as a trader and reportedly earned £100k a year doing that while filming Made In Chelsea at the same time.
Other earnings come from being a shareholder in his parent’s hotel, Eden Rock in the Caribbean.
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 as ‘the bachelor’ in The Bachelor UK series 5, which saw him pick 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.
In 2018 he starred in Five Star Hotel, which saw him attempt to run a hotel on the Greek island of Ios. He was crowned the employee of the season.
His latest reality show, however, is his own one named Spencer, Vogue and Babay Too on E4.
The show takes the viewer through the pair’s parenthood trials and tribulations.
