Matty Healy eats raw meat on stage again after quitting The 1975 show stunts

Matty Healy enjoyed a mid-show snack during his band's latest gig on Monday night.

The 1975 frontman, 33, briefly paused a headline show at Leeds First Direct Arena to chomp on some raw meat live on stage once again - something that is becoming a trademark stunt for Denise Welch's eldest son.

Matty is no stranger to causing some controversary while on tour, with the About You singing often kissing fans in the audience - after an age-check - and bringing famous pals out on stage as he performs across the world.

Earlier this month, the singer honed in his bizarre concert traditions at a gig due to the presence of 'Queen' Taylor Swift, who joined The 1975 on stage to perform her UK number one hit Anti-Hero live for the very first time.

"I'm not kissing anybody in front of Taylor Swift, have some respect. In front of the Queen, it's not happening," Matty told the excited crowd at London's O2 Arena.]

But on Monday night Matty was back in a mischievous mood, as he chewed on a huge slab of raw meat.

Leeds Live reviewer Alex Grove was in the crowd covering the concert and managed to capture the star stopping his performance to feast on his odd 'treat'.

"Mum asked me how was the show last night…how do I tell her I saw matty Healy eat raw meat, touch himself and get wine drunk on stage without sounding like a psycho," one fan quipped on Twitter after The 1975 gig on Monday.

"I wish I was a piece of raw meat right now," another concert-goer mused online during the show, with a third adding: "just saw matty healy eat raw meat on stage and quite frankly i have never ever been happier."

Matty got everyone online talking earlier this week, but for once it had nothing to do with his stage antics.

Fans of The 1975 went wild as they gushed over old footage of the rock star as a child went viral on TikTok.

Thanks to his mum Denise Welch, the It's Not Living singer first graced out TV screens back in 1999, when he walked out with dad Tim Healy to surprise his mum on her episode of This is Your Life.

Denise was surprised by Michael Aspel - with the help of her then husband - outside Manchester's Piccadilly Station after a day trip to London.

Matty, who was around 10 at the time of filming, looked angel-faced and delighted to be on the stage, as he held hands with Phoenix Nights actor Tim before going to give his mum a big hug.

"HE LOOKS JUST LIKE BOTH OF THEM," one TikTok user noted in the comments.

"He's adorable," another added, as a third quipped: "I didn’t know Denise was married to Leslie!"
