He continued to SpinGenie: "What I found most difficult was knowing my position in life, even two years on I still have the difficulties of imposter syndrome."

As Matthew shot to stardom on the ITV show he had tragically just lost one of his best pals.

"My life has been crazy the past few months. From one of my best friends passing away two weeks before Love Island, to entering the villa and experiencing all that came with it," he explained at the time.

He added: "I haven’t told anyone this, but I met with the psychologist when I was in the villa and cried for a solid hour.
