Homes Under the Hammer returns to the BBC and it is regularly fronted by presenter Martin Roberts. The star recently stripped down for Strictly the Real Full Monty and he discussed some emotional stories. Express.co.uk has all you need to know about how old the star is. 

How old is Martin Roberts? 

Martin Roberts has many strings to his bow as the TV presenter is also a property expert, investor, entrepreneur and author. 

He is perhaps best known for presenting the BBC hit series, Homes Under the Hammer, as well as Talk Radio show Home Rule with Martin Roberts. 

The Cheshire-born star actually started his career in the late 1980s at BBC Radio Manchester.

In his early days he tested the water in a number of occupations, working as a DJ and studying Electronic Engineering at university. 

The presenter and property expert was born on July 20, 1963, making him 58 years old. 

He has worked as a property developer since the early 1990s. 

Since then, the father-of-two has presented a number of programmes including Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is and How to Survive the Property Crisis. 

Roberts has also written books such as Teach Yourself Making Money from Property and The Property Auction Guide. 

He is married to Kirsty Roberts and for the past 25 years has lived near Bath, Somerset.

The star is on Instagram and he has been keeping fans up to date with his latest ventures. 

He recently featured on Strictly The Real Full Monty and shared a video full of behind the scenes footage. 

The presenter said it was “all getting scary” as he prepared to strip off to the iconic Full Monty tune. 

The star recently got emotional as he opened up about his influence on Homes Under the Hammer. 

Speaking to Express.co.uk he said: “The nicest thing for me is when I get people telling me that I’ve helped them through difficult times. 

“The show is discovered by people who are in unusual circumstances in their own life. 

“Obviously there’s lots of people who work from home, there’s people who are self-employed, or people who get sick or are retired.

“Before they come across it when they’re ill or temporarily, or they are on maternity leave; it’s really nice to hear from them that the show has helped them in some way, get through that period of difficulty, and I think that’s definitely the case.”

The property expert keeps his family life out of the spotlight for the most part, but he did reveal how he met his wife Kirsty.

He had been reporting on an NSPCC charity climb on Mount Kilimanjaro for ITV’s Wish You Were Here…?.

The star said: “I’d never met my wife Kirsty before, but she was on the climb too, raising money.

“Her granny had made her a fruit cake to take and she kept one piece for the summit.

“At the top I collapsed with altitude sickness, and out of the mist came Kirsty bearing this final piece of cake for me.”

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