Martin revealed that he was heading down to a property in Devon. “It’s going to be really interesting to see how it goes, I think it’s me and a cameraman, so it’s going to be interesting.”

He told his Twitter followers he’d take some pictures.

The show, which first started in 2003, has become a stalwart of BBC1’s daytime schedule, so the broadcaster will no doubt be delighted to have it back up and running.
