Homes Under the Hammer's Martin Roberts rushed to hospital with 'hours to live'

HOMES Under the Hammer star Martin Roberts was rushed to hospital with "hours to live" after experiencing chest pains.

The TV presenter needed life-saving emergency treatment after being told there was "a massive amount of fluid" surrounding his heart.


Martin, 58, has shared a video from his hospital bed, and 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***.
