Homes Under The Hammer star Martin Roberts confessed to spending time in his fair share of barely inhabitable homes.The Strictly The Real Full Monty star was left incredulous about how anyone could have braved such tough conditions."I've seen about five or six hoarder homes over the years," he admitted."You wonder how on earth people could have been living in there...

it's horrifying!""It is like those extreme hoarder type programmes where there's just a small space for the chair, surrounded by years, and years, and years of rubbish piled around it."Often [these are] properties which have maybe had animals kept inside, so you can imagine the kind of smell and the state that they're in!"Martin's other concerns during filming include minor injuries caused by falling through the floor.Thanks to these nightmare experiences, he is all too aware of the hidden hazards of unsafe properties, which he claims can even trip up an expert like him."A stitch in time saves nine," he warned."There's lots of things you can do to stop your house getting into a state."This week, Martin began a new campaign with the Gas Safe Register to help raise awareness of the perils of failing to keep up maintenance in the home.The caring star, who also fronts a children's charity and dared to bare all in a striptease for Strictly The Real Full Monty in support of a close pal who died of bowel cancer, is highlighting all the problems that can crop up in people's homes, if left unresolved.Out of control mould, carbon monoxide poisoning from leaky boilers, flooding, and many more disasters are all issues that he has witnessed over the years.He admits: " After 20 years in property, I’ve heard every shoulda, woulda, coulda going when it comes to regrets.

Police scream at 'plastic-wrapped newborn baby' found dead and stuffed in freezer
Police have found the body of a three-month-old baby boy wrapped in plastic and stuffed in a freezer.The horrifying discovery was made in Corowa, a town in New South Wales, Australia, on Wednesday night after a family member raised the alarm about the welfare of Kevin John Patten.Neighbours reported hearing terrified screams from officers when they opened the freezer and saw the infant's remains inside.Kylie Patten, the boy's 40-year-old mother, was arrested at the scene but was released on Thursday morning having assisted police with their inquiries.Forensics officers seized the freezer as evidence at around 3pm on Thursday, and a post-mortem is due to be conducted to determine the newborn's cause of death, Daily Mail Australia reports.Police are said to be still working their way through the home on Church Street, which apparently contains a horde of miscellaneous objects.Federation Council Mayor Pat Bourke said: "Anytime a child is lost, under any circumstances, is a tragedy."Our thoughts go out to everyone affected, especially the family of the infant and our first responders."I would like to take this opportunity to request our local residents to respect that an investigation is now underway and that lead authorities will have more to say as soon as they are able to do so."Strike Force Walumil, which will see State Crime Command Homicide Squad detectives work alongside local police, has been established to investigate the tragic incident.Patten is believed to have lived at the home with her parents, Sue and Wayne Patten, for the past six months, having previously lived on the other side of town.
