Martin Roberts found out this week that he could have had just hours to live without medical intervention due to a risky build-up of fluid around his heart. He underwent an emergency operation and has now provided an update on his health, revealing he may remain in hospital for weeks.

The medical team treating him believed the life-threatening problem could have arisen as the result of an earlier lung infection.

He thanked fans profusely for their concern in his recorded update, explaining: “Firstly, I have been overwhelmed by all the messages of love and support I’ve received.

“They mean the world to me and help lift my spirits, at a time I feel a bit scared and very emotionally battered, like you wouldn’t believe. Thank you. Thank you.”

Adding that his heart problem “seems to have stabilised”, he clarified that medics are now running tests to get to the root of why it happened in the first place.

Martin admitted in a video shared with his fans that he’d been catching up with his own show while in his hospital bed.

“Well, I have to say this isn’t where I expected to be watching Homes Under the Hammer,” he joked.

“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***,” he continued in an audibly quivering and shaking voice.

“So here I am, still around, thank goodness, thank god and angels, all those things.

“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 cheekily, in an indication that he has certainly not lost his sense of humour: “Meanwhile, there’s a good TV show on that I think I’ll watch here!”

“Bit of a shocker,” he captioned his Instagram video, adding to over 20,000 followers: “At least I’m here to tell the tale…”
