Birthplace Grantham, Lincolnshire

Spencer Matthews might have found fame in Made In Chelsea but he actually started life in Lincolnshire.

He was born in Grantham to mum Jane and dad David in 1988.

Spencer had two older brothers, James and Michael, and a half-sister called Nina. Michael sadly died aged 22 while climbing Mount Everest in 1999.

The family spent time in Sheffield before moving to St Barts, where they became the owners of the Eden Rock Hotel.

Spencer was educated at Eton and went on to work as a PR manager for several London clubs. He then became a broker and also trained as an actor.

In 2011 Spencer Matthews shot to fame in e4 show Made In Chelsea. The structured realty series follows the lives and loves of a group of affluent young people in London.

Despite being enamoured with gal pal Caggie Dunlop throughout the first few seasons, Spencer soon gained a reputation as a bit of a ladies’ man.

The Chelsea boy was dating model Funda Onal when the show began but went on to hook up with the likes of Louise Thompson, Lucy Watson and Stephanie Pratt.

His antics have often landed him in hot water.

Spencer memorably received a slap across the face from Millie Mackintosh in the 2012 Christmas special after she heard that he had cheated on her friend Louise.

Spencer Matthews made a name for himself away from Made In Chelsea when he starred in Channel 5 series The Bachelor in 2012, in which 24 girls battled it out to win his heart.

Khloe Evans won the show but romance failed to materialise after the programme ended.

The following year Spencer appeared with co-star Binky Felstead in the saucy Fifty Shades Of Grey-themed music video for Stacy Jackson’s track Pointing Fingers.

Spencer made lots of juicy revelations in his autobiography Confessions Of A Chelsea Boy in 2014.
