SOMERSET resident, TV presenter and podcast host Matt Spracklen, is appearing as a judge in the second series of BBC One’s ‘All Together Now’.

He will be on the judging panel alongside head judge, Geri Horner and host Rob Beckett.

Matt lives in Somerset and the county has inspired him to create the Love For Somerset Instagram page which shares posts of local beauty spots with its ten thousand followers.

‘All Together Now’ features a range of singers that will take to the stage in front of TV’s biggest judging panel – The 100. The unique panel is made up of artists and industry experts.

If any of them like what they hear, they can press their buzzer, stand up and join in with the performance. The aim is to get the whole hundred up on their feet.

Matt featured on the Celebrity Special on Christmas Eve, which saw Gemma Collins, Chris Kamara, Sara Pascoe and Alison Hammond battle it out for the 100’s votes.

Series two returned on March 2 on BBC One.

Somerset County Gazette:

After re-watching the show, Matt said: “Saturday night’s show was a great first episode. Rob is brilliantly funny and so quick but also the standard of singers has been really good from the off. I think I stayed seated for two acts but I was being picky.

“There’s an element of pressure knowing that your fellow judges around you and people at home will see how you voted. We (The 100) basically lived together for the best part of a month so the camaraderie you see on the wall of judges is real. There’s some big characters in there and Geri holds us all together perfectly too.”

Matt works across the music scene, whether he’s photographing Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart, travelling with Jacoby Shaddix, Nikki Sixx from Mötley Crüe or hanging out with best pal Alan Fletcher (aka Dr Karl Kennedy from Neighbours).

He played on stage with Green Day and spent time in Nashville with Joanne Cash (Johnny’s sister). However, this is a first for Matt as he is asked to judge the contestants on their singing ability.

To see Matt in action, turn on BBC One this Saturday at 7:35pm.
