Disney responds to delay of Made in Chelsea star Spencer Matthews' documentary Finding Michael
Disney has responded to the delay of Finding Michael, a personal documentary from Made in Chelsea's Spencer Matthews.
The documentary, set to air on Disney+, sees the reality TV star climb Mount Everest as he attempts to locate his late brother Michael's final resting place.
24 years ago, Michael became the youngest British person to reach the summit but died just hours later and his body was never recovered.
The documentary was due to be released on Friday, March 3, but has now been delayed. In a statement, Disney said: "We're sorry that the debut date for Finding Michael has shifted on Disney+.
"We will let you know as soon as we have new timings for its launch. This will be in the near future. Thanks for your patience."
In an interview on The One Show recently, Matthews revealed that his family were sent a photograph of a body on the mountain claiming it could be Michael.
"And in fact, it did look like, you know... [it was a] very similar summit suit, and it's the first time really that I had even thought that a body recovery was possible, so that's when the gears began to grind in my mind.
"It continued to tick away in my head that, what if it is him? And I've certainly grown up with feelings that he's up there and died and was left there and wouldn't it be nice if we had a body to mourn as a family?"
Spencer said that it's rare that body recoveries are ever successful due to the dangerous weather conditions on the mountain, but he knew he wanted to go there and see for himself.
"Retracing his steps and understanding his final days a bit better was quite cathartic for me."
He added: "It's not a mission undertaken by many. There have only been a few cases of successful body recoveries," he said. "Michael went missing, so by the time some people realised that he was missing, it was too late. Nobody survives the night, really."
