Martin Roberts: Homes Under The Hammer star on escaping ‘trouble’ after ‘destroying’ set

Martin Roberts discusses seeing 'enormous' rats during filming

Martin Roberts, 56, revealed he is yet to find himself in BBC bosses bad books when it comes to “destroying” some internal elements of properties on Homes Under The Hammer. As the multiple hosts show viewers around some of the homes that have, in some cases seen better days, they point out what could be improved once they’ve been bought by a willing buyer.

I haven’t been in trouble yet, but there’s always a first time

During his weekly Q&A on Twitter, Martin responded to one viewer who asked if he’s ever gotten himself in “trouble” after tearing down something inside a potential property.

“Do you ever get in trouble for the things you destroy in the houses?” they asked.

“It cracks us up when you’re like, ‘Ooh a piece of wallpaper hanging off’ then half the wall falls down.”

Martin replied swiftly, admitting that day is yet to come.

“I haven’t been in trouble yet, but there’s always a first time,” he giggled.

“And sometimes more bits fall off than I’m expecting.”

Someone else noted that there must be times where the presenters walk into a place and are disappointed by what they find.

“You must go in a property and sometimes think… what a let down,” they stated.

But Martin looked on the positive side of things, finding a glimmer of hope in every house.

“I normally try and find something of interest and often it’s the other way round,” he explained.

“Something not that interesting on the outside turns out to be a gem.”

While Martin’s Q&A was in full swing, someone else had an entirely different question – about parking on the show.

“Why can’t the estate agents or the property owners or yourselves EVER park outside the house?” they asked curiously.

“They always walk up the road to the houses or is it just a luck thing that there’s no parking available?”

Martin joked: “Yes, but how else could we feature the walk up music?”

The music has become arguably one of the most liked features of the show, where viewers have gone out of their way to applaud the editors for their creativity when it comes to the show’s soundtrack.

Away from property, Martin recently revealed he appeared on Celebrity Mastermind.

Taking to his Instagram late last year, he teased fans with a little guessing game about what show he was filming for.

And it turns out his specialist subject isn’t property or DIY… and he offered a free copy of his new book to the first person who guessed it right!

Martin’s episode of Celebrity Mastermind airs at 7:30pm on 18 January on BBC Two and Homes Under The Hammer continues weekdays at 10:45 on BBC One.
