Returning to our TV screens on Sunday November 13 I’m A Celebrity…Get Me out Of Here, our columnist Martin Roberts is rumoured be braving the challenges of the Australian jungle

With many strings to his bow including presenting BBC’s Homes Under the Hammer, host of his own weekly property show Home Rule on Talk Radio and being the best selling author of Making Money from Property among many other publications, Martin Roberts also contributes to Somerset Life with his monthly Property Perspective.

Also Martin’s comparing and auctioneering skills have raised tens of thousands of pounds for a wide range of charities including Make A Wish, NSPCC and Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. In addition, he is patron of Just a Drop, which provides clean water to underprivileged communities around the world.

Adding another plan to his busy schedule, Martin could be starring in ITV’s I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here starting at 9pm Sunday November 13. Alongside Martin, audiences have been teased with a rumoured line-up of celebrities including Carol Volderman, Olympian Sam Quek and actor Larry Lamb to appear on the reality TV show.

We can’t wait to see what he gets up to in there! From eating creepy-crawlies, enduring cold showers and tasks set to challenge even the most brave, we wish Martin the best of luck!
