Spencer Matthews has opened up about how his “selfish” drinking habits almost ruined his and Vogue Williams' wedding day.

The TV couple tied the knot at the lavish Glen Affric Estate, which is owned by Spencer’s family, in the Scottish Highlands back in 2018.

Speaking to The Sunday Times, Spencer explained that he nearly left Vogue at the altar because he got carried away on a booze cruise with Kate Middleton’s younger brother James the morning of the wedding.

“I was still drinking when we got married in 2018 up in Glen Affric in Scotland, so there was plenty of champagne and whisky at the wedding,” the Made In Chelsea star, who is now sober, said.

“I took a paddleboard out on the loch in the morning with James Middleton. We mistimed it and only got in 15 minutes before the service.

“When Vogue was pregnant with Theodore, my casual drinking had to stop... Typically, in my life, I have been a selfish individual and I feel less selfish with her, particularly now that we have children.

“I try my best to put the kids first,” he added.

Dubliner Vogue, who is currently pregnant with the couple’s third child together, agreed that it was “important” for her husband to give up drinking.

The 36-year-old joked that she’d rather order a glass of milk than a pint while out socialising.

“Drinking’s not really a part of our lives anymore, which is a good thing,” she said.

“Spenny would always drink a lot more than me. I don’t really like the taste of alcohol. If I went to a restaurant even now, I’d be tempted to order a glass of milk.

“I think it was important for him to stop drinking. He came to the realisation himself but I definitely encouraged it... It was affecting his productivity and his focus. It’s been a positive thing for our relationship.”
