Martin Roberts, 55, has been a long-serving host on the property auction series Homes Under The Hammer since its inception in 2003. And now the BBC presenter has taken to Twitter and teased fans with a photo of the upcoming series, where he revealed the buyer had purchased a bizarre property for their latest DIY project. In view of his 22,000 followers, he shared a snap of himself stood in a dentist’s office with a weary look on his face. He captioned the post: “Nightmare!!!! After that crazy early start I end up filming in a former dentists… the new owner bit off more than he could chew, but he was looking foreword to getting his teeth into the project.”
Fans were certainly tickled by the property expert’s humour, as one person quipped: “Can’t wait for the song that goes along with this section haha.”
Another person joked: “We are young, we run green, keep our teeth nice and clean, see our friends, see the sights, feel alright..Gotta use this right?”(sic) in reference to Supergrass’ 90s hit song.
While a third person added: “That would give me the creeps, I hate dentists and I have to go next week for a little bit of treatment. Just dreading it!”
The cheeky pun comes after he admitted he had a very early start to travel to the location in south Wales.
He tweeted: “Leeds station. 05:53am. Off to film in South Wales. Just so you know the efforts I go to to bring Homes under the Hammer to your TV.”
The BBC favourite has presented the show for 16 years but has seen some changes take place in recent times.
His former co-star Lucy Alexander, 48, announced her departure from the show in 2016.
The presenter was replaced with former professional footballer Dion Dublin, 50, who joined the show in 2015 and journalist Martell Maxwell, 42, who joined in 2017.
In an interview with Express.co.uk, Martin spilled on his relationship with Lucy and admitted the pals are still in contact.
He divulged: “Yes I’m still in contact with her, there are days we get together.”
The small-screen star admitted it was “sad” to see his former co-star depart the show and added it felt like a “divorce”.
Martin said: “She’s been my partner for 13 years so it’s like any divorce. She was my on-screen wife.”
Speaking about his current colleagues Dion and Martell, he admitted they’re both “great” to work with.
He added: “Dion and Martin are great but of course I worked with her [Lucy] for 13 years and it’s very sad when that ends.”
The BBC star will be taking on a new challenge tonight as he joins presenters Richard Osman and Alexander Armstrong for the latest edition of Pointless Celebrities.
Pointless Celebrities airs at 5.45pm on BBC One and Homes Under the Hammer airs weekdays at 10am on the same channel.
