Morgan met Russell Brand when he was working as an intern on MTV. He first joined with Brand after the presenter told him he had a television show idea which was "good" and "commissioned", and that Morgan should work on it with him; Morgan later joked that neither of those things turned out to be true. In 2010 Matt wrote and co-performed Borked TV with comedian Rufus Hound and others, a six-part series featuring comedy voiceovers dubbed over existing television material.

Morgan was the co-host of The Russell Brand Show from its initial conception in 2006 on BBC 6 Music until its finish after Brand's resignation due to the prank telephone calls row. On the radio show, Morgan played the straight man to Brand's cheeky chappy persona, often mimicking Brand's Dot Cotton-esque accent and singing. In his memoir, Booky Wook 2, Brand asserted that he and Morgan got into a row following Brand's controversial turn as the host of the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards (which the men co-wrote), and Morgan refused to return to the show.

When Brand returned to talk radio in the Autumn of 2010, Morgan rejoined The Russell Brand Show. In September 2011, Morgan joined Noel Gallagher in co-hosting a show filling in for Dermot O'Leary.

In March 2013, Morgan, along with Brand, Gallagher and Mr Gee, hosted a one-off radio show on XFM in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust.

Morgan reunited with Brand and Mr Gee for The Russell Brand Podcast, which began in February 2015 on audioBoom.

In February 2016, Morgan reunited with Gallagher for a one-off radio show for Absolute Radio.

In April 2017, Morgan reunited with Russell Brand and Greg "Mr Gee" Sekweyama for a new show on Radio X. The initial contract was for a length of 6 months.


In 2014, Morgan appeared as a guest commentator on Brand's YouTube web series "The Trews" on 23 July, 24 July and 8 August.

Personal life

On the 16 March 2013 (on the Russell Brand XFM Radio Show in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust) listeners learned that Matt and his wife Katie have a son named Coen named after Leonard Cohen. In 2016 their daughter, Winter was born.

During June 2015, Matt ran a charity campaign for people suffering with 'Tonsil Stones' or 'Tonsilloliths'. He raised £808 for the cause which has been donated to 'TSRUK' (Tonsil Stone Relief UK). He was inspired to run the campaign as he himself has been a long term sufferer of this condition.
