The Dalton Family

Presenter

#thedaltons to join the discussion.

Matt and his wife Kate have been married for 20 years, and their two daughters, Holly and Millie, are both entering their final years at high school. They liken their family to the real-life version of the Dunphy’s from Modern Family – one of their favourite TV shows. There’s always a disagreement over the girls constant chatter and the TV remote for Sport v Lifestyle shows. You’ll always find Kate with a cup of tea, the girls with their mobile phones, and Matt just trying to get a word in edgeways.
