This week it was announced that Martin Roberts, a TV personality and columnist for Archant’s Somerset Life magazine, was due to enter the jungle as a contestant on ITV’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!
Martin, who is best known for presenting the popular daytime show Homes Under The Hammer, has been a columnist for Somerset Life for the last six months and presented their Food and Drink Awards earlier this year.
“The Somerset Life editorial and web teams have been busy drumming up support online and on social media for Martin, who lives in Somerset.
"It is great for the county and the magazine that he is on such a prime-time television programme, which is getting more than 10 million viewers a night" said Charlotte Skidmore, Editor of Archant's Somerset Life magazine.
Before he flew to Australia (where the series is filmed) Martin prepared two columns for the magazine, which could be used once he appears on television. These columns will be available to view on the Somerset Life website over the next few weeks.
