After beating Vanessa Feltz’s family in the first round, Matthew Wright’s family are through to the semi final, and in with the chance of winning the £25,000 prize for a family of their choice. The quiz show, hosted by The Chase’s Anne Hegarty has seen eight celebrity families battle it out to gain the title of Britain’s Brightest Celebrity Family. But behind the fun of the game show, chat show host Matthew Wright and his family recently had to deal with a terrifying ordeal. The 55-year-old TV presenter was bombarded by a super-fan, who was given a restraining order in December 2020. Michelle Ranicar has been banned from contacting Wright and his family Michelle Ranicar, 54, repeatedly visited Wright's North London home after she was barred from being in the audience of his chat show. During the court case, Wood Green Crown Court heard the Wrights "live in fear of what Michelle Ranicar may do to their baby", reported the BBC. Ranicar, who admitted stalking, was banned from contacting them in future. The court also heard that Ranicar has mild learning difficulties and has been diagnosed with a 'mild autism spectrum disorder', as reported by the Mirror. She was a “regular” on the set of his Channel 5 show The Wright Stuff, and was later banned from the programme due to security concerns about her behaviour towards Matthew Wright. Ranicar then went on to attend events Wright would be attending, and had to be escorted from talkRadio’s building when he started working there.

Events culminated in Ranicar turning up at the family’s home. In early January 2019, she shouted through the letterbox to Wright’s heavily pregnant wife: "When is the baby due, which hospital? Let me look after her." The court was also told that Ranicar appeared at the house in April, where she shouted, “Amelia, I want to see the baby". It is also claimed she tried to take a photo through the letterbox. Rebecca Foulkes, prosecuting, told the court Mrs Wright had "cancelled medical appointments" because she was afraid of going out and described the situation "as emotional torture". "Mr Wright felt vulnerable, terrified and scared - he felt there was nowhere he could go locally without looking over his shoulder," she said. Raincar, who is from Uxbridge, previously pleaded guilty to one count of stalking.
