  • Quotes

    • Matt: The right person would have to be very understanding and patient and trusting. I couldn't go out with somebody who's very clingy. She'd have to accept that I like my own space and doing my own thing. And that it doesn't mean I'm going to run off with another woman.

    • Matt: There were a lot of lean times before Emmerdale came along. Money was tight and I struggled to pay the rent.

    • Matt: I've seen so many marriages break up, I think you have to be absolutely certain before you do anything. I didn't want to take a risk then end up being divorced two years later, so I've chosen to wait in the hope that I'll bump into someone.

    • Matt: I think I'm very scared of commitment, I've had long-term relationships but I've never actually got down on one knee and said, 'Will you marry me'.

  • I would rate Matt as a 10. And I would vote for him to be the next James Bond.

    I think Matt Healy is one of the many great new actors to come into the soaps.

    He is gorgeous, sexy, and a clever man. He can make me cry and sometimes he makes me angry. It takes exceptional acting to make a viewer love you one minute and hate you the next. I love his character in Emmerdale, and think he is smart in all of his suits, but to see him in jeans and a tea shirt showing off his "I suspect" perfect muscles, would be just great, so come on producers, strip him off.moreless
