With X Factor taking over our weekend television schedule yet again, there was one noticeable absence last night.
Host of the Xtra Factor Matt Edmondson had to skip out a little early as his wife Bryony Emmett went into labour.
Co-host Rylan Clark-Neal opened the live show last night on his own and addressed the missing Matt by 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 X Factor team also sent their well-wishes to the couple as they tweeted:
“WATERS-BREAKING NEWS: Matt is excused from tonight’s show because his wife has gone into labour.”
Matt and Bryony were engaged in 2012 and married a year later.
As fans quickly tweeted the TV and radio host their best wishes, Matt just about managed to tweet two emojis and we are loving his choices.

By the end of the show Rylan announced that Bryony had given birth to a baby girl.
Congrats @MattEdmondson and Bryony so made up for you both! Xxx— Rylan Clark-Neal (@Rylan) September 3, 2016
