Martin has fronted Homes Under The Hammer since the first episode, which aired in 2003.
He presents the programme alongside Dion Dublin and Martel Maxwell following Lucy Alexander’s departure in 2016.
Elsewhere, Martin recently discovered he had some celebrity fans in former Strictly Come Dancing star Kevin Clifton and his girlfriend and documentary filmmaker Stacey Dooley.
The television personality realised the couple had become “obsessed” with Homes Under The Hammer during the coronavirus lockdown after Stacey discussed the show on Chris Evans’ Virgin Radio Breakfast Show recently.
The Strictly champion also said her beau has perfected a “wicked” impersonation of Martin.
Martin shared a clip of Stacey’s interview on Twitter and shared his reaction to the moment.
Alongside the video he wrote: “Great to hear on @achrisevans breakfast show on @VirginRadioUK from @StaceyDooley that her and @keviclifton have become fans of Homes Under The Hammer.(sic)
“But I’m throwing down the gauntlet to Kevin who’s allegedly doing a wicked impersonation of me. Can’t wait to hear it.”

Stacey replied: “We’re at that stage now Chris!”
“Who does he think he can do?” Chris questioned.
