Martin said: ‘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**p.

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

He continued: ‘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.

‘Meanwhile, there’s a good TV show on that I think I’ll watch here.’

It comes after he updated fans on the progress of his two-day ‘mercy dash’ to drive supplies to the Ukraine in March.

Martin looked exhausted as he admitted to having just a few hours’ sleep as he prepared for the second leg of his journey, a 13 to 16 hour drive across Germany and Poland. 

He revealed that he was going to drive a car packed full of supplies across Europe to help those affected by Putin’s attacks on the Ukraine.  

In a short clip, the tired star asked fans for song choices to get him through the long drive and said he was fuelled on ‘wine gums and lots of Red Bull’ but that he felt a a ‘massive responsibility’ to safely deliver the supplies to the Ukraine/Poland border. 

Many expressed concern that the TV presenter had taken on too much in trying to drive for 26 hours with only a short break.
