Xtra Factor host Matt Edmondson missed the first live show last night as his wife went into labour.
His very excitable co-host Ryan Clark-Neal announced the news on air last night, saying: “Before we go on you are probably wondering where my lovely Matt is. Well I am so excited to announce that his lovely wife has literally just gone into labour, so obviously he has dashed off to be with her. We just want to send our best of luck!”
The announcement was met with rounds of applause from the studio audience.
A tweet from the official X Factor page also wished the pair good luck:
