Speaking about the character to Graham Norton on his BBC Radio 2 show in December, Matt said: “I’m Joey the Clown, who is desperate to be star of the show and it’s not meant to be.
“I’m not going to give too much away about what happens but my role is basically like an audition for Cirque du Soleil with the amount of stuff that I’m doing.”
He continued: “The jeopardy levels of me going into this show. I’m quite worried about it to be honest.”
Seeming concerned, Graham quizzed Matt: “Do they really make you do terrible things?”
“Well, it’s not terrible things but it’s kind of circusy things and unicycling and juggling and walking on a tightrope,” the TV personality revealed.
