Spencer Matthews opens up about the death of his brother Michael


Spencer Matthews is getting candid with fans as he opens up about losing his beloved brother Michael, and creating a documentary in his honour.

Spencer was just ten-years-old, when Michael tragically passed away while climbing Mount Everest.

Recalling when he found out about Michael’s death, the Made In Chelsea star opened up on Elizabeth Day’s How To Fail podcast.

“I was ten at the time, we were in St. Barts. I was called up to the room and there was clearly something wrong. My parents told me Mike was lost on the mountain and wasn’t coming back.”

“I didn’t understand death fully then, it didn’t register with me. Mike was my superhero. To me, it just couldn’t be true,” he explained.


The business man confessed it took him a long time to accept his brother’s death.

Sharing: “I remember not even being physically upset because I thought, well that’s nonsense. That’s obviously not true.”

“As time passed, I realised it was true and that I wouldn’t see him again. At the time, that was very difficult.”

Recently Spencer traveled to Mount Everest, in search of his brothers body. With journey being chronicled in an upcoming Disney Plus documentary, which will be arriving in March.


Spencer also shared how he treats high emotions with his own children now.

Confessing he tries to be very open and honest when it come to emotions.

Saying: “When I was growing up crying was perceived to be very weak in my family. Weakness was simply not allowed. I won’t do that with my kids.”

Spencer shares Theodore ‘Theo’ who is four-years-old, Gigi Margaux who is two-years-old, and baby Otto, who is only 8-months-old, with wife Vogue Williams.
