Littler is most notable for his role on the British soap opera Hollyoaks in which he played Max Cunningham, a role he held for 11 years before his character's death in June 2008.[2] He decided to leave the show with his on/off-screen best friend Sam "O.B." O'Brien, played by Darren Jeffries,[3] who left the show a few months earlier, and later returned for Max's departure. Max was one of the longest running characters on the show. On ITV's This Morning show, Matt revealed that he will be returning to Hollyoaks to direct a few episodes.

Littler has been a co-presenter, with Darren Jeffries, on 4Music programme Orange RockCorps. Other appearances have been on Big Brother's Big Mouth and Only Fools on Horses. In 2007 Litller had a role in Neil Carroll's For King and Country.

Littler co-founded Liverpool based production company, "Roll Camera" with Craig Forster. With the company Littler directed and produced a music video for the band GK and the Renegades. In his independent directing role, Littler wrote, directed and acted in a short film in 2008 called Kidnap, which also starred a number of Hollyoaks actors.

In 2009, 4Music released several never seen before shows called 'The Versus Chart'. They are presented by Matt Littler and Darren Jeffries.

In January 2009, Matt and Darren started a career in radio, presenting the "Sat Nav" show on Saturday mornings from 10am-2pm on Preston based radio station 97.4 Rock FM.
