Homes Under The Hammer host Martin Roberts takes SWIPE at ex co-star Lucy Alexander ‘Rat!’


Martin Roberts, 55, worked on Homes Under The Hammer with Lucy Alexander, 48, for 13 years, up until she quit in 2016.

And the old friends came face-to-face decorating and showing their craft skills, in an attempt to be crowned the winner, in Kirstie Allsopp’s Channel 4 show Kirstie’s Celebrity Craft Masters this week.

But the heated competition soon got the better of them as Martin took a swipe at Lucy.

During one of the challenges, Lucy made geometric candles and, as a bonus, made some in the shape of a “K”, “M”, “L”, Kirstie Mary Allsopp’s initials.

Martin called her a “rat” for the cheeky move during the task, which Lucy ended up winning.

Defending her actions, Lucy said: “Mine was way better than yours, I absolutely cleared up.”

Martin hit out: “You are a slimy rat faced, whatever…”

“You’re supposed to love me,” Lucy said back.

“I do love you,” Martin replied, before screeching: “But not creating candles out of the name of Kirstie Allsopp’s initials!”

“I knew you’d cheat,” he fumed.

Trying to sweeten the blow for Martin, Lucy hugged him and said: “I still love you!”

“And I love you too but in that particular instance, you were a rat,” Martin responded.

Also in the episode, Lucy, who was replaced by Martel Maxwell on Homes Under The Hammer when she quit, spilled a secret about Martin.

Lucy revealed her former co-star would steal her make-up when they were on-set filming.

“I can let you into lots of secrets about Martin,” she divulged to the craft expert.

“I do love him but on a filming day together, he would quite often have to borrow my make-up,” she said.

“He would take it off me and…” Lucy said before showing how Martin would apply blusher to his cheeks.

Despite Lucy’s “cheating” behaviour, Martin came out on top in the last two tasks, and ended up winning the overall competition.

On Kirstie’s Celebrity Craft Masters tonight, Rufus Hound and Jenny Eclair will battle it out to be crowned the winner.

Kirstie’s Celebrity Craft Masters airs on Channel 5 this evening at 5pm.
