DOI star Matt Richardson says model girlfriend kept him afloat as he considered quitting showbiz

DANCING on Ice stand-in Matt Richardson says he was about to quit showbiz — after relying on the reddies earned by supermodel girlfriend Sam Rollinson.

Struggling comic and presenter Matt, 29, says getting the call-up from the ITV show as a replacement after Rufus Hound caught Covid may have saved his career.


He might be lucky in love but admitted: “I am currently skint because I’ve not worked for a year.

"Dancing on Ice has been a career saver.

"When I took the job, I was like, worst case scenario, I get paid to learn a skill. Best case scenario, I get on the show.”



The former Xtra Factor co-host met Sam, 26, in 2015 and they now live together.

He said: “As if I’m subtle about having a girlfriend who is a supermodel. When I’ve had a few drinks in the pub, I go, ‘Look, that’s her in that advert!’ It’s brilliant.

"She is super successful, which I’m grateful for because she’s been supporting both of us for the last 12 months.”
