Martin Roberts Health Problems
Homes Under the Hammer host Martin Roberts has had at least two health problems; a terrifying skin condition, which spread across his body, and a heart condition, which required emergency surgery.
The BBC host revealed that he is suffering from cellulitis, a “common bacterial skin infection that causes inflammation, skin discoloration, and pain in the infected area of the skin. If untreated, it can spread and cause serious health problems,” according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Martin Roberts Illness
In May 2022, Homes Under the Hammer presenter Martin Roberts was admitted to hospital with severe chest pains after he experienced breathing problems. The BBC One presenter was rushed to A&E to find he was “hours away from death”.
He was diagnosed with pericardial effusion, the buildup of excess fluid between the heart and the sac surrounding the heart, and had to undergo heart surgery as the fluid had caused organ failure.
Appearing on ITV’s This Morning with his wife Kirsty, Martin expounded on the condition further.
“There’s a sack around your heart and it was filling with fluid…that in turn is something called a tapenade, which basically means this sack is squeezing the heart it sits around, so the heart isn’t able to expand, and therefore isn’t able to pump, so it means all of your organs start failing,” he told Philip Schofield and Rochelle Humes via NationalWorld.
“The confusing thing about this [his symptoms], it’s a bit of a red herring, is that it gets you in the breathing side of things, so you don’t think it’s something to do with your heart.”
The Warrington presenter revealed he was minutes away from death.
“By the time they [the doctors] got to me, my kidneys were at 30 per cent, my liver was at 30 per cent, my lungs weren’t getting any oxygen, and at any time I could have had a heart attack…the heart would have been strangled by itself.
“You put your hands in the professionals…I am lying there in this special operating theatre and there’s a local anaesthetic. I’m watching as they stick a tube into the side of my heart and with a big syringe, he starts pulling this dark red/black liquid which is almost, I call death juice.”
Martin Roberts’ wife Kirsty said that it is a bit of a ‘watershed moment’: “And I said, you are just going to have to say no…we both have, and we have lived life at 100mph and very rarely get to stop and smell the roses as Martin would say.
“Times like this, you realise what’s important in life. And there’s going to have to be a readjustment.”
