‘My life has changed for the bet­ter since leav­ing The Wright Stuff’

Closer (UK) - - Celeb Guest -

I GET UP AT AROUND 8AM, and half an hour later I set off to walk our dog Wig­gie, a mini Sch­nauzer, for an hour. AT 9.30AM, I HEAD TO THE TALKRADIO STU­DIOS near Lon­don’s Water­loo to meet TV critic Kevin O’sul­li­van. To­gether, we host a week­day af­ter­noon pro­gramme called The Matthew Wright Show, which fo­cuses on cur­rent af­fairs in the UK and around the world. We get cof­fee and sand­wiches and dis­cuss what we’re go­ing to talk about that day. THE SHOW STARTS AT 1PM AND FIN­ISHES AT 4PM. I hop in a cab and then head back to my lo­cal pub to have a few pints be­fore my wife Amelia comes home. I TEND TO COOK DIN­NER IN OUR HOUSE. I’m quite a con­fi­dent cook and my spe­cial­ity is prawn laksa. Amelia’s not as con­fi­dent in the kitchen and is still try­ing to get her head around boiled eggs, so she leaves the re­spon­si­bil­ity to me! I TRY TO GET TO BED AT A REA­SON­ABLE HOUR, but I’ve been strug­gling a bit with in­som­nia and al­ways wake up around 2am or 3am and wan­der about the house for a bit un­til I feel ready to sleep again. The Matthew Wright Show on TALKRADIO, Mon­day to Fri­day, 1-4pm
