MAFS UK star unrecognisable before huge fitness transformation

Married At First Sight UK 2022 star Matt Murray might have been known for his bulging biceps and array of face and body tattoos on the show – but it wasn't always so.

The 32 year old from Yorkshire took to Instagram recently to share a before and after snap of himself from way before he undertook a fitness overhaul – and he is virtually unrecognisable.

In the first snap, Matt can be seen with closely-cropped hair and just one single star tattoo on his chest.

In the second snap, though, Matt was instantly recognisable and could be seen smouldering at the camera as he showed off his rippling abs and broad chest, while showing off a multitude of inkings across his body and face.

Promoting his personal coaching sessions, Matt wrote in the caption: "Put the work in now and your future self will thank you."

His followers were quick to comment on the post, with one writing: "Serious transformation," whilst a second wrote: "Goals! Both physique and tattoos! What is your favorite tattoo?"

A third said: "Great transformation," whilst a fourth gushed: "You look better now than you used to!"

It's not the first time that Matt has posted about his body transformation, and has pinned a post to the top of his Instagram grid featuring more before and after pics.

In the caption, he wrote: "You're one decision away from a totally different life.

"It all starts with a dream, an image you create in your head.

"If you can see it then you can make it happen.

"When I was at school and over weight in early secondary… I used to dream that I would go back to school after the 6 weeks holiday with a cushion up my top. When anyone mentioned my belly I would pull the cushion out and there would be a 6 pack !! This is a very vivid memory… I can still picture the dream to this day."

He went on to say that, back then, he didn't put the work in required to get himself into the shape wanted to be until he had a "turning point".

Matt found fame on Married At First Sight UK last year, where he met Gemma Rose Barnes at the altar.

Their union was doomed, however, as Gemma struggled to bond with her husband on the matchmaking show.

Matt went on to date Marilyse Corrigan, who appeared on the show in 2021, but the pair split after just a few months together.

Marilyse went on to reveal the reason behind the split as she told OK! of Matt's "intense" and "questioning" behaviour.

She told us: "Matt likes to have all of your attention when you’re in a relationship with him. He was needy and couldn’t understand why I couldn’t be his all the time," she explains.

"I wouldn’t call them red flags, but there were times when he’d question me about silly things – things that were unnecessary – and then question me about them again. So I started feeling on edge around him."
