A Double Blow for This Morning: Matty Lock’s Tragic Passing

This Morning has been struck by another devastating loss just days after Dr. Okoye’s passing.

The show’s hosts, Holly Willoughby and Dermot O’Leary, led tributes to Matty Lock, a beloved guest who tragically died at the tender age of 19.

Matty was known for his unique passion for vacuum cleaners, a fascination that began when he received his first toy Henry hoover at the age of two.

Matty’s contributions to the show extended beyond his love for gadgets.

He was also an active member of the Labour Party and had recently achieved the remarkable feat of becoming a councillor in his hometown of Maghull, Merseyside.

The news of his passing was shared with viewers during a Monday morning episode of This Morning.

Holly Willoughby paid her respects, saying, “He was a much-loved member of our team who never failed to bring joy and more to our studio with an infectious passion for gadgets and technology.

“He was truly unique.”

Dermot O’Leary added, “Yeah, bless him. His love for vacuum cleaners started when he was just two years old when he received his first toy Henry.

“He then went on to become a politician, a campaigner, and a much-loved member of this show. He’s a lovely guy.”

The loss of both Dr. Uchenna Okoye and Matty Lock has cast a somber shadow over This Morning, and the heartfelt condolences of the entire team go out to their grieving families.

Holly Willoughby aptly concluded, “Matthew will be missed by all of us here, and we extend our deepest condolences to his family.

“It was incredibly sad, shocking news to get yesterday.”
