Martin Roberts, 56, revealed how Homes Under The Hammer deals with properties that have certain “dark histories”. It comes after a curious fan wondered how the BBC tackle airing certain elements that may seems inappropriate to share with viewers.
There are certain personal aspects of the property history that we won’t reveal and I think that’s probably how it should be
During his weekly Twitter Q&A, the viewer wrote in to the presenter with their burning question that they hoped would “lighten up” his day.
“Have any properties visited on #HUTH had dark histories which you didn’t feel appropriate to share on screen,” they asked before giving some examples.
“I.e scenes of crime/ghost reputation/notorious past . just to lighten up the day.”
Martin was quick to reply, saying: “There are certain personal aspects of the property history that we won’t reveal and I think that’s probably how it should be.”

He also responded to the question on his most recent YouTube video, where he admitted he doesn’t believe anyone should “dwell” on the dark past of a property up for sale.
Giggling to himself as he read aloud the question, he said: “We sometimes can’t go into their dark histories if a place have been repossessed,” he explained.
“If there’s stuff like that going on then I don’t think we can really dwell on that.
“But we do share most stuff!” he reassured.

Pretending to turn down the viewer for a romantic experience, he then offered some advice on what his go to plans would be.
The fan pondered what he would plan if he was taking someone on a first date, writing: “They wrote: “Hi Martin. What’s your ideal first date for a 31yr old man who’s into craft beer, golf & the career of @DionDublinsDube?” referring to former footballer and Martin’s BBC co-star Dion Dublin.
Despite not asking Martin to join him on said date, the presenter decided to have some fun anyway.

“Hi Martin, Do you believe aliens are real? Or are we all alone? Have a great Monday,” they probed.
Responding with his honest judgement, the property expert replied: “The jury’s out.
“It’s a big universe out there, and if you believe in the theory of infinity there must be an infinite number of alien planets out there.”
