De­part­ing host in Wright state

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - SQUARE EYES -

Matthew Wright fought back tears as he ended his show’s 18-year run.

Voice crack­ing, the 52-year-old told fans of The Wright Stuff he was look­ing for­ward to spend­ing time with his wife.

Sign­ing off, below, he told Chan­nel 5 view­ers: “It will be great to see more of Amelia. Some com­pen­sa­tion, I guess, for see­ing less of you.”

Thank­ing bosses, his au­di­ence and ev­ery­one who worked on the show, he added: “What a trip it has been! Eigh­teen years we have spent to­gether.”
