Gogglebox extra – What you didn’t see this week on TV: 'I was lucky to be alive' Matty relives his terrifying accident

Matty reveals the heart-stopping moment his life could have ended.

While the Goggleboxers witnessed a devastating car crash scene on Paramedics, it struck a chord with new-dad, Matty who was reminded of his own life-threatening accident. 

"That happened to me," he says.

"I was on a motorbike and traffic stopped really quickly in front of me.

"I clipped a car and landed in the gutter on the other side of the road. 

"I was lucky to be alive."

With their newborn baby in her arms, his wife, Sarah Marie shook her head in disbelief, adding, "You were lucky to all be alive, from something like that."

The horrific scene on Paramedics, which saw a yong couple stuck in a crumpled ute, hit a nerve with the other Goggleboxers as well. 

"It's full on, isn't it. My god," Anastasia says. 

The young couple who were mangled in the wreckage are taken to hospital safely and remarkably, come out relatively unscathed. 

The boyfriend suffered a broken ankle, while his girlfriend who was in a critical condition, came out with several fractures in both feet. 

Hobbling along in crutches, the couple reveal they are lucky to be alive and have each other.

"That is so cute! They've both got their crutches," Faye says.

"That's a good ending," Wendel adds.
