Martin Roberts, 56, has become a huge fan of staple shirts and was eager to show off the bold prints on TV. After making his floral debut on Homes Under The Hammer a couple of years back, the bright designs weren’t the only things fans of the show picked up on about his outfits.

Lay off the coat!

During a behind-the-scenes chat with comedian Mo Gilligan, Martin addressed show secrets fans might not have known and answered all his questions about pretty much anything.

But one thing the funnyman was keen to find out was why he dresses the way he does.

After a clip of the presenter wearing jeans and a very lairey, flowery shirt appeared on screen, he explained that he wasn’t too sure why and how he came about donning the selective prints, believing he did it as a contrast to some of the “dark and dingey” properties being shown on the show.

“I thought, I’ve got to brighten this up somehow!” Martin laughed, as Mo reassured him his outfit choice on this day was reasonable and “swag”.

But there was something in particular the comedian couldn’t get his head around, and it was to do with his coats and suit jackets.

“What is wrong with the way I do up my coat?!” Martin exclaimed, sounding confused as Mo flung back his head with laughter.

“Because you’re always having a go at the bottom button thing!”

He continued: “Look, I’m a property expert, I’m not a designer! I don’t know how to do up a coat!”

Martin barely took a breather as demanded to know the right way to wear a jacket.

“The first thing you say is, ‘Oh look he’s got his bottom button done up,’ and I’m like, ‘Lay off the coat Mo!'”

“Listen to what I’m saying about the property!”

After his rant was over, Mo managed to stop laughing for a brief moment to reply.

“I’ll be honest, you’re one of my favourites,” the comedian admitted, revealing it’s all in his facial expressions, that resonate more than anything with him.

“But let’s get onto the coat,” he giggled, “I don’t know whether it’s a thing when you’re on set but you have this one button on the coat and I think it’s a pet peeve, I’m like, ‘Come on man!’

“Why can’t the producer just say, ‘Martin, your bottom button is….'” Mo creased over with laughter again, unable to get his words out as he wiped tears away from his eyes.

Martin giggled as he admitted he’ll take up lessons in how to dress on-air.

Homes Under The Hammer airs weekdays at 10am on BBC One.
