Roman Kemp shares emotional reason he joined Celebrity Gogglebox with dad Martin

Roman Kemp has explained the emotional reason he signed up for Celebrity Gogglebox with his father Martin.

The Capital Radio and TV presenter is one of the highlights of the long-running Channel 4 show, with ex-Spandau Ballet singer Martin joining his son every Friday on the sofa to discuss the week's telly.

It's one of a number of commitments for the 29-year-old, who can be seen on The One Show as well on a regular basis.

He told Daily Star at the TRIC Awards 2022 on Wednesday (July 6) just how he balances the situation, explaining: "I don't think I could brand out anymore to be totally honest. I can't stop working! I've always said radio is first for me – every time.

" I don't think anything will make me feel how that makes me feel. I love doing The One Show and for me, TV is not necessarily a departure. everything is the same, you know? With everything, I just want to do what I enjoy. That's it.

"The reason I do The One Show is I genuinely enjoy the show, and I love working with Alex. She's amazing. She makes you feel safe when you're presenting there."

Roman also revealed that his future children were a key part of his decision to join Celebrity Gogglebox.

He told the Daily Star: "The reason I chose Gogglebox was when I'm older, when he's not here anymore I can say to me kids and my grandkids 'this is the relationship I had with my dad'. So that's why I do it."

The revelation comes after a recent episode of Celebrity Gogglebox saw Martin confess to his wife Shirlie, 60, and Roman, that he once accidentally took a poo in a stranger's hotel room while they slept.

Recalling the hilarious incident Martin explained: "I walked into the wrong room it was about 3 o'clock in the morning. I had a key card I pushed it up against the lock and the door opened.

"So I go in the first thing I do, it was late at night, so I went in to sit on the toilet.

"I'm sitting on the toilet and I look around and I can see somebody else's aftershave and lotions. Stuff like that. All their toiletries. All of a sudden I can hear snoring. And I'm in there sitting on their toilet."

Shocked Roman asked: "What did you do?"

Martin then replied: "I had a choice. I either had to flush it and run, or leave it and run."

Shirlie then enquired: "What did you do then?

Martin responded: "I left it."
