Sharing the news on Twitter, Matt wrote: “Holidays have confirmed it for me. Need to reduce the working hours a bit, enjoy more flexibility in the evenings after The Last Word on Today FM finishes at 7pm.”

“So not returning to #tonightvmtv Have enjoyed the last four years greatly and thanks to all at @VirginMedia_TV.”

“I will be working on other TV projects so you may see as well as hear me again soon,” he added.

Claire Brock has been co-hosting the show alongside Matt, taking over from Ciara Doherty while she is on maternity leave.
