The NSPCC Jersey fundraising committee have announced that BBC’s Martin Roberts will be attending their Emerald Isle Ball which will be held on 30th June 2018 at Trinity Manor as celebrity auctioneer. Martin is one of the UK’s most respected Property, Travel and Lifestyle TV presenters and journalists. Over the past 25 years he has appeared on BBC TV and Radio, ITV, CNN and Satellite TV Worldwide.  He was a regular presenter on ITV’s top rated travel show ‘Wish You Were Here..?’ for 8 years and the travel editor of ‘Woman’ magazine for 15 years. Rumour has it he’s doing the appearance for free too, what a nice chap!

For the past 15 years Martin has written and presented the hit BBC property auction show ‘Homes under the Hammer’, which is shown on BBC1, Satellite and internet Channels Worldwide and is now in its 23rd series. He is a respected UK and Overseas Property expert, appearing as expert guest on programmes such as ‘BBC Breakfast’ , ‘BBC  News 24’, ‘Sky Sunrise’, the Jeremy Vine Show and  BBC Radios 2, 4 & 5 Live.  He has been a celebrity contestant on Eggheads, Celebrity Mastermind, Pointless, Ready Steady Cook, Masterchef, Through the Keyhole and Hole in the Wall.

In November 2016 Martin entered the Australian Jungle to take part in  ITV’s flagship family entertainment show  “I’m a Celebrity…Get me out of here!”. Watched nightly by over 12 million viewers, his hatred of beans and rice, love of trees and talcum powder, and fun, engaging and spirited character made him hugely popular with the viewing public. He ended in sixth pace, surviving all but two days in camp.

The Emerald Isle Ball is supported by Dandara and will take place on the 30th June at Trinity Manor. It raises funds for the NSPCC in Jersey, based at the Gower Centre in Stopford Road. Services provided in Jersey include ‘Letting The Future In’ which helps children who have been sexually abused.
