Martin Roberts has been a firm favourite on Homes Under The Hammer since he made his debut in 2003 alongside Lucy Alexander. The BBC favourite has suffered his fair share of mishaps on the popular property programme.

The 57-year-old presenter revealed there had been some properties that were in dire need of repair.

The small-screen star regularly takes to the micro-blogging site for Ask Martin Mondays, where he shares behind the scenes details about Homes Under The Hammer.

In view of his 25,700 followers, Martin took the opportunity to respond to a social media user who quizzed him about properties that were in a “state of despair”.

The person in question asked: “Morning Martin, bit of an odd one but my nine-year-old son would like to know if you’ve ever been into a house on HUTH which is in such a state of disrepair that it has plants growing out of it?”

The BBC favourite admitted it was a common occurrence when filming for Homes Under The Hammer.

Martin replied: “Yes! Usually, ivy growing through the windows and around the bathroom or kitchen, which makes it very spooky!”

The Twitter user replied: “Thank you Martin. My son is thrilled with your reply!”

The TV star also addressed a social media user who quizzed him on the Home Under The Hammer presenters.

Martin previously presented the BBC auction show alongside Lucy Alexander when they made their show debut in 2003.

However, after 13 years of fronting the show Lucy announced her departure in 2016.

A viewer has since asked Martin who he prefers to host the show with.

It comes as Martin has since been joined by Dion Dublin and Martel Maxwell on the popular property show.

The person in question: “Who would you choose if you can only present again with one of them @LucyAlexanderTV @MartelMaxwell @DionDublins.”

Martin admitted they he enjoys working with all three BBC presenters and he has no Homes Under The Hammer favourite.

He replied: “They’re all great.”

Away from television, the presenter is an established children’s author and has been busy working on his latest book.

“In this day and age of tablets and electronic gizmos I still think there is nothing quite as important as reading to children,” Martin explained.

“It’s a chance to bond with them, but also release your inner child and thespian.”

He continued to Female First: “Although The Villes is written for children I did include lots of references and storyline’s that adults will really enjoy, and I hope that the beautiful illustrations give joy to all ages.”

Homes Under The Hammer airs weekdays on BBC One at 10am.
