The property presenter was left feeling worried by the changes to his career, as he has two young children with his wife Kirsty Roberts to provide for.
He continued: “That was a bit concerning, very concerning, I’m the only breadwinner in our family, and I’ve got two young kids, so I had a panic as most people did for a while.”
However, Martin decided to take matters into his own hands and created a YouTube channel that left him feeling “really proud”.
The star said: “I’m self-employed and you just get on and do what you can. So I started thinking, what can I do? ‘Ok I cant film Homes Under The Hammer, but I know, I’ll start filming things in my back garden’.
