“She asked me about my wife and we made each other laugh. And she talked about shoes.”
He continued: “Basically, she asked me if I’d ever bought my wife a pair of ‘blank-blank’ shoes, and I said I hadn’t.
“She gave me one little tip, which was that every man should buy a pair of ‘blank-blank’ shoes for his wife.”
During an interview with Radio Times in the same year, Matt described Nicola as “very supportive and understanding”.
He said: “Nicola is very supportive and understanding, she is everything to me.
“I couldn’t have done any of this without her.
“She makes sure there is everything I want when I get home, and she’s a fantastic mother. I really owe her so much.”
