Emma Willis' husband Matt Willis opens up about protecting family from 'traumatic' moment


Emma Willis, 43, was recently spotted cheering on her husband Matt Willis, 36, with their children as he performed with his band Busted. However, the star admitted his latest venture into acting may not be appropriate for the couple’s youngsters 10-year-old Isabelle, seven-year-old Ace and three-year-old Trixie to witness. The musician turned actor is starring as a casting director in Jason Mewes film Madness in the Method. Matt’s character can be seen uttering plenty of expletives in the flick and unfortunately meets a gruesome end.

Speaking out about shielding his children from the “traumatic” scenes in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, the performer explained: “I don’t think I’d like my kids to hear me say motherf***er. 

“I can get away with a lot of things but motherf***er might be a stretch for my seven-year-old.

“It might be a bit early for them to hear me say that,” he joked.

Opening up about how his character’s on-screen death may affect his family, the star added: “To watch me get killed might be a bit traumatic so maybe I won’t let them see this movie.”

Fortunately, Matt has also been involved in more family-friendly productions, including musical Little Shop of Horrors, where he played sadistic dentist, Orin Scrivello. 

He continued: “But they’ve watched everything else. They went to see Little Shop and they loved it.”

“That many people jumping up and down and pushing into each other is quite intimidating.

“Their daddy saying ‘f**k’ all the time on stage isn’t a good look.”

Emma and Matt are currently enjoying a holiday together on a fitness retreat in Mallorca.

The pair, who tied the knot back in 2008, posed for a selfie wearing caps branded with “The Body Camp” before embarking on their trip.

Matt posted the snap in view of his 383,000 followers, which showed the couple smiling for the camera.

He captioned the shot: “Away for a week of fun with this one @emmawillisofficial @thebodycampmallorca so far it’s AMAZING! This place is next level! Loving every second, every bead of sweat and every meal!”
