Spencer Matthews apologises to fans after new documentary air date changes last minute

Spencer Matthews has apologised after revealing they've been forced to move the highly anticipated release date of his documentary, Finding Michael.

Spencer, 34, has retraced the steps of his late brother, who disappeared on an expedition to the site more than 20 years ago.

The upcoming Disney+ film will see 34-year-old Spencer attempt to find the body of his brother, who vanished three hours after becoming the youngest Briton to reach the summit of Everest at the age of 22.

On Friday night, which was supposed to be the release day for the film, Spencer posted on his Instagram story to apologise to his fans before revealing that the release date of his new Disney+ documentary has been moved.

Spencer took to his Instagram Story to say: "Apologies to everyone trying to view Finding Matthew on Disney+.

"The debut date has been shifted and we'll update you as soon as we have the new timings. This will be in the near future.

"Thank you for all of your support."

He did not mention why they've had to move the release date.

The former Made In Chelsea star has previously said his brother Michael was “everything to me”, and the pair were often described as “twins separated by time despite the age gap”.

Michael Matthews lost his life descending the summit of Mount Everest in May 1999, when he was just 22 years old.

He vanished just three hours after reaching the mountain’s peak and his body has never been found, leaving his two brothers and parents struggling to find closure over his death.

In the film, Spencer will attempt to retrace Michael’s steps with the help of survivalist Bear Grylls and “14 peak” record-holding mountaineer Nirmal “Nims” Purja – who leads the search and rescue mission.

Canadian climber Dave Rodney, who had been on the expedition with Michael, also features in the film.

Spencer said: “Dave in particular brought to the table footage from the 1999 expedition of Mike and Dave climbing and Mike’s attitude to the mountain and I actually had never, prior to flying to Canada to meet Dave, had never seen Mike on camera ever.

“We weren’t the kind of family that made home videos and when I said to mum and dad, when we agreed to make this documentary, I said I need all footage of Mike and they said ‘We don’t have any’.

“Fortunately, Dave had this incredible film that I hadn’t seen so I saw it in Canada for the first time and it’s the first time I’d heard Michael speak since he was alive, since I was 10.”
