Homes Under the Hammer's Martin Roberts 'soiled himself' for new TV show

Homes Under the Hammer’s Martin Roberts has confessed that he ‘drank his own urine’ and even ‘s*** himself’ for a brand new reality series.

The TV presenter, 59, revealed maybe a little too much about his experience of new Channel 4 dieting show The Big Celebrity Detox.

He’ll be joined on the tough weight loss programme by TV personality and former singer Kerry Katona, model Chloe Veitch, and Celebrity Karaoke star David Potts.

Love Island stars Toby Aromolaran and Megan Barton Hanson will also be there with Martin, alongside Princess Olga Romanoff.

Martin, who finished sixth on I’m A Celebrity in 2016, was asked to try some, erm, interesting dietary methods by producers on the upcoming series.

Martin admitted: ‘I think [the producers] did this as a shock factor to get people to watch the series – we had to drink our own urine.’

Speaking to The Sun, he continued: ‘They threw us into the deep end with the worst therapy they could have possibly thought of.’

Worst of all the therapy, however, were what Martin describes as ‘vomit beans’, which are designed specifically to cause extreme vomiting and diarrhoea.

Martin explained: ‘You eat these beans, sit around in a circle and chant over a fire and then these weird people in white smocks give you these beans.’

It turns out, once the beans are ingested, there’s no turning back: ‘They’re fried and are guaranteed to make you throw up and s*** yourself.’

The TV veteran, who began hosting Homes Under the Hammer in 2003, recently underwent emergency surgery on his heart but still chose to participate.

An unexpected and sudden build-up of fluid put pressure on his heart and apparently left him with just hours to live and an urgent need for surgery.

The Big Celebrity Detox will air through Channel 4’s sister station E4, with a source telling the Birmingham Mail that viewers will be ‘uncomfortable’ with the series.

‘This will go down as one of the most nauseating scenes ever on TV. It’s horrendous, an uncomfortable moment for the celebs, but also for viewers.’

Watch The Big Celebrity Detox on E4 from Monday.
