Homes Under the Hammer presenter Martin Roberts said he is still “struggling” after he was rushed to hospital “with hours to live”, due to a “serious” heart condition.

The former ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ contestant underwent emergency surgery last week when fluid was discovered round his heart.

Roberts said his health issue last Wednesday could have left him with “hours to live”, as he detailed how fluid around his heart was stopping it from working.

The 58-year old TV presenter took to Twitter where he posted a video update. See below.

He told his followers: “So. Bit of a shocker. Thankfully I’m here to tell the tale…

“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***.”

Martin has thanked God that he is “still around” following the health scare.

He said: “So here I am, still around, thank goodness, thank God and angels, all those things.”

The television personality promised he would keep everyone updated on his health developments.

“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,” he added.
