Yeah, we didn't either.
Turns out, as well as staring in a film, he's also planning on joining the EastEnders cast in 2014.
Stacey Branning is set to return to Albert Square and she's going to have a boyfriend...enter Matt.
The big wigs at EastEnders are yet to reveal what her storyline will involve.
Theories have centred around getting revenge on Janine, returning to support Kat's pregnancy, and facing the music about Archie's death.
So, where does Matt Willis fit into this?
An insider told The Mirror, "Luke is an ambitious young man who is deeply in love and devoted to his girlfriend.
Currently working hard in the city, Luke is determined to build a secure life for him and his family but as drama always seems to follow Stacey wherever she goes, things will not be plain sailing for the duo.
Fans will love Matt's character but he can't last long because of his other commitments to McBusted. Think weeks rather than months on the show when he comes on screen around March."
Sounds like a fleeting visit from the singer then.
