Yesterday Martin revealed he was watching his own show in hospital.

He said: "Well, I have to say this isn’t where I expected to be watching Homes Under the Hammer."

"Little bit of good news, little bit of bad news. I ended up in hospital in Bath yesterday, I had a few chest pains and just feeling generally lousy, so I was brought in here and turns out I had a massive amount of fluid all around my heart, which was actually stopping my heart working.

"Had they not got rid of it, which they did in an emergency operation last night, then it’s sort of quite serious, like, hours to live kind of c***.

"So here I am, still around, thank goodness, thank god and angels, all those things.”

Martin continued: "There’s lots of other complicated things that have happened as a result, but we will work through those, and I’ll keep you updated. Meanwhile, there’s a good TV show on that I think I’ll watch here!"

Born in Warrington on July 20 1963, Martin studied at the Bradford University in the 1980s.

He was a DJ at the university's radio station before moving on to BBC Radio Manchester.

Along with his media career, the 58-year-old has always had an interest in houses and started developing property in the early 1990s.

After rising through the ranks of the radio world, he landed his first job on TV when he was made a regular presenter on much-loved BBC travel show Wish You Were Here?
