A bloke branded the ultimate "mummy's boy" made viewers cringe by getting down on one knee to propose to his own mother – to prepare for when he asks his girlfriend to marry him.
Matt, 29, and his overbearing mother Kelly featured in discovery+ series I Love A Mama’s Boy and their behaviour has mortified many fans.
In a recent episode, Kelly asks Matt if he wants to practise proposing to her after he confesses he wants to tie the knot with his long-suffering girlfriend Kim – planning to hold the wedding after the pandemic eases.
Suggesting they "role-play", his mum hands Matt an engagement ring and talks him through what he should do.
"Put this in your pocket, don’t lose it,” she says.
"Do you think I should talk and then kneel or kneel and then talk?" Matt asks.
His mum suggests: "You could just take her by the hand and say, 'my love, I need to ask you a question,'" she continues, before kissing her son on the hand.
Getting down on one knee to his mum, Matt role-plays popping the question, much to Kelly’s obvious delight.
He says: "My life wouldn’t be complete without you, and I want to spend every moment of every day with you, and I want to have a family with you."
Later, talking directly to the camera, he confesses: "Literally, the moment I got on my knee and looked up, it was like I knew what I wanted to say.

"My mum helped me figure out the words I wanted to say."
Closing the scene, Matt pops the question to his mother: "I would love it if you would do the honour of marrying me."
"Yes," Kelly screams, as Matt slips the engagement ring on her finger and she tackles him onto the sofa.
The TV show, which previously saw Matt go lingerie shopping with his mum and buy her a racy nightie, understandably sparked a debate on Twitter.
Piers for PM? Have your say!
The Daily Star has projected an image of Piers Morgan onto the Houses of Parliament – and we’re asking you are we ready for #PMFORPM?
Last week the Daily Star jokingly asked the question on nobody’s lips: Would PM be a better PM than our current PM?
And it seems we may have inadvertently unleashed a monster. Shy and retiring Piers – no stranger to holding our politicians to account on Good Morning Britain – leapt on the idea.
His odds were slashed from 500/1 to just 20/1 in a single day.
So, are you Team Piers or Team Bozo? Take part in our survey!
One shocked viewer said: "Matt on I love a mama's boy needs to marry Mama."
Another blasted: "I Love A Mamas Boy” show is sick.
"These mother/son relationships are weird to me.
"After a certain age, you gotta cut that cord and do you."
I Love A Mama’s Boy is available to stream now exclusively on discovery+
