Martin Roberts once found a "baffled" man still living in a house as he filmed Homes Under The Hammer.

Martin, 57, recalled that he and the crew had uncovered a man sleeping in one of the bedrooms, mistakenly believing him to be dead.

Eventually, they were relieved to hear the man start to snore, Martin reasoning that the family who'd lived in the property left in such a rush that they'd "forgotten granddad."

Chatting to Express.co.uk, Martin told: "We turned up at one property, which looked like it had recently been vacated, and the director went in and she came out ashen-faced and said, 'There's a dead body in the bedroom.'

"And we're like, 'What?' So gingerly we all went in and in the bedroom there's this bed and obviously a body in it and we're going, 'Well that's a first!'"

He added: "Then it started snoring so we kind of prodded this body and it sat up in bed and it was this old gentleman whose family had left the house in such a rush that they'd forgotten to take granddad with them!

"So they grabbed all their belongings and bundled them into a car but forgot about granddad, so he woke up in this bed wondering where his family were, surrounded by a film crew going, 'Well actually, the house has been sold.'
