PSA: Spencer Matthews has officially apologised for his 'wooden performance'

‘It’s safe to say that it didn’t go so well.’

THERE’S A STARK difference between live TV and reality TV, and today Spencer Matthews discovered just how vast that gulf truly is.

Now listen, we know that Spencer, who came to public prominence on Made in Chelsea back, and now stars in Spencer, Vogue and Baby too, is not a total novice when it comes to live TV.

Often appearing as a guest on chat shows, he has proven that he is more than capable of shooting the breeze with a host, but when it comes to presenting, linking and reading the autocue? Not so much.

And he’s sorry about that; deeply, deeply sorry.

Following his appearance on Good Morning Britain as Editor of Show Business, viewers felt compelled to call him out on his lack of presenting prowess – a move that is certain to boost his confidence ahead of his next appearance, says you.

Taking to Instagram earlier today, Spencer acknowledged that he struggled on set, and wanted to formally apologise to the nation.

Such a huge amount of respect for people who regularly present live television – it’s a skill and it’s not easy. Had my first go this morning on @gmb and it’s safe to say that it didn’t go so well.

With that in mind, it was time for the apology so many viewers desperately craved… apparently.

Apologies for my lack of experience and wooden performance. I’ll loosen up and get better with time, hopefully!

Spencer’s Instagram followers, who number in excess of 730,000, were quick to console him, insisting that he did his best, and like our parents told us, that’s all that can be asked of him.

Hear that, Spencer? You tried and that’s all that bloody matters.

Everyone has to start somewhere, keep at it!
You were not bad at all for your first time! Like u say practice makes perfect. (sic)
Give yourself a break, the only way you’ll be any good is by doing it!! For a first time I think you did pretty well. Look forward to seeing you doing it again soon.

That should do it.
