Grieving BBC Homes Under the Hammer star Martin Roberts supported after 'really tough loss'

Martin Roberts has been flooded with support as he opened up to fans about a personal "struggle". BBC Homes Under The Hammer presenter Martin was visibly overcome with emotion as he shared his personal struggle in a poignant video.

Today, Martin marks his second Father's Day without his late father. Addressing fans via his social media platform, he said: "I just wanted to wish you a very Happy Father’s Day and special thoughts to you if, like me, your dad isn’t around for whatever reason.

“I know that it is really tough and, yeah, today is going to be a real struggle. I guess we just have to focus on those happy memories we have got and pick a particularly daft, silly or memorable thing and focus on that. Know that, I guess, they are up there looking down at us. Happy Father’s Day.”

Replying to Mr Roberts, a fan typed: "This is the 25th year of my dad having a heavenly Father’s Day, I miss him as much now as I did the day I lost him…miss and love him so much." A second said: "Have a nice Fathers day Mart . I miss my dad he was completely bonkers but I’ll always remember him and his crazy antics."

"Same here I lost my late Dad in February 2009 still missed so much no matter what age you are and Martin what Great words," another wrote. "I remember you breaking the news about your dad. It will get easier and I bet he would be super proud of you building your dream. Maybe you should have a room or area within it named after your dad @martinrobertstv," another commented.

"Lots of love. I miss my Dad every Dad. But I hope your kids are spoiling you today," said another.
