houses under the hammer Presenter Martin Roberts was told he had “hours to live” following emergency heart surgery.
The property expert shared a video of the Royal United Hospital in Bath on Twitter on Thursday afternoon (April 21), which he opened by saying: ‘Well I have to say this isn’t where I expected it to be see houses under the hammer today.”
The presenter explained that on Wednesday (April 20) he was having chest pains and “feeling really bad” when he went to the hospital.
“It turned out I had a huge amount of fluid around my heart, which was actually preventing my heart from working,” he said.
“If they hadn’t gotten rid of it, which they did in emergency surgery last night, then it’s pretty serious. Like hours to live, kinda c***.”
Roberts continued, “Well, here I am. Still there, thank god. The guardian angels and all that stuff.”
He said that while there were “many other complications” to realizing the issue so late, he would keep fans updated on his health.
Roberts’ social media was flooded with well wishes, with one fan writing: “Martin, glad you caught it in time. Put your feet up and hope to see you back on your feet soon!”
“Oh my Martin, take care. Thank goodness the NHS worked its magic on you,” wrote another.

Roberts replied to fans that while the experience was “super scary”, the NHS had been “amazing”.
Last month, the daily presenter made headlines after personally delivering relief supplies to the Ukrainian border.
