Matty J recreates three of his childhood photos while stuck in isolation

''Another successful day working from home...''

Some have been using isolation as a time to improve their baking skills or take up knitting.
Former Bachelor Matty J, however, has been entertaining himself at home by taking part in the latest social media craze that is the Just A Kid Challenge.
The 32-year-old dad-of-one recreated three of his childhood photos and judging by the detailed costumes and perfected poses, he's going a little stir-crazy.

In the video clip which features the Simple Plan hit I'm Just A Kid, Matty first recreated a baby photo by donning a skull cap and posing as his infant self.
The next snap from the Johnson family archives was a photo of young Matty dressed as Superman with a half-eaten apple in his hand in against a garden backdrop that older Matty replicated with great success.
Last up was a recreation of little Matty in a red bow tie for what was presumably a school photo.
"Another successful day working from home... #justakidchallenge," the former Bachelor captioned his post.

While we love Matty's cute ears in his childhood photos, the reality star admitted in 2017 that he had them pinned back in a cosmetic procedure before he appeared on Georgia Love's season of The Bachelorette.
When asked in the comments about why he had them pinned, Matty simply replied: "each to their own but I absolutely couldn't stand them!"
"I was meant to get it when I was in primary school but chickened out then finally got it done when I was about 18. Made a HUGE difference!" he added in another comment.

This isn't the only social media challenge Matty has taken a crack at while in isolation.
Along with his partner Laura Byrne, The Babble podcast host took on the Flip The Switch Challenge where he and Laura swapped clothes to the 2018 track Nonstop.
And though it's Laura's dress, Matty sure does look good in a frock!

Despite their hilarious videos, Matty and Laura confessed to TV WEEK that their lives are "too normal and drama-free to make interesting reality TV."
"If we did do anything, I think we'd prefer to do comedy similar to Skithouse or Little Britain, which also means Matt can wear women's clothing without people asking questions," she added.
