Married At First Sight UK star Matt Pilmoor has shared an emotional update on his career, as he steps away from his father's business.

Matt, who appeared on season 8 of MAFS, shared that he has been running the window-cleaning business for five years, after his father suffered a stroke.

In an Instagram video, a teary Matt explained that he was "sat in my van for the last time", after deciding to focus on his online coaching career. Praising his father's work ethic, Matt explained he had kept the business running with the hope of eventually handing it back to his dad.

"The end of an era. As many of you who follow me know about my dad's health and the reason I took over his business was because he couldn't do it no more. I wanted to continue this for him to make him proud," he captioned the post.

"Despite all the crazy opportunities and things coming over the show I was so happy with I knew I still had to keep doing it as a side hustle for him."

Matt shared that his father's health had unfortunately deteriorated and he wouldn't be able to return to his business. The reality star decided it was time to pursue his own passions within his career.

"The time has come where I need to move on and continue to achieve the goals I want in my life. I didn't not expect to get emotional but I think talking about it made me realise how much it ment to me," he concluded in the caption.

Matt was met with lots of support in the comments, including well wishes from his MAFS co-stars Jay Howard and Thomas Kriaras.

"Well done mate proud of you @mattpilmoor when one door closes another one opens and you'll smash your coaching," wrote Jay. "Well done man, smashing it," added Thomas.
