No stranger to reality TV, Matty J recently pirouetted his way back onto the small screen in Dancing With The Stars All Stars. More recently, Matty has been travelling the country filling in presenting the weather on Weekend Today show.

When not attending to family duties or walking his three-legged dog Buster, Matty J delights his 465k strong social media followers with hilarious parent-related skits. His engaging content earned him the title of the country's Best Creator on Instagram at the inaugural AiMCO Awards. Additionally, his humorous and creative approach has made him a highly sought-after content creator for national brands like The Iconic, Destination NSW, Amazon Prime, and AfterPay.
