Roman Kemp helps parents Martin and Shirlie with their new home renovation

Roman Kemp swapped his radio breakfast show for a day helping his parents Martin and Shirlie with their new home renovation.

The Capital FM presenter, 28, who recently admitted that he had the 'biggest ever crush' on I'm A Celebrity star Frankie Bridge, swapped the studio for the building site as he set to work on 'Maison #9' which is the latest renovation of his parents Shirlie, 59, and 60 year old Martin.

Shirlie, who has garnered 86,900 followers on her home renovation Instagram account, shared footage of Roman as he donned a hardhat and tracksuit for the day of hard work.

Roman, who hosted Christmas because his parents had 'nowhere to go' amid the renovation, looked confused as he appeared from a portable toilet with a spade in his hand before he started to shovel gravel on the driveway.

The DJ was also seen taking a tour of the 1800s house before he gave his parents some tips on the chandelier in the home.

Roman said: "There is a slight issue…



The Celebrity Gogglebox star walked into the low-hanging chandelier as his mum Shirlie added: "Oh looks good on you Ro!"

Captioning the footage, Shirlie penned: "I'm so glad @romankemp came over to help this weekend no threat to @larksbuilds though we didn’t get much done but we did laugh!"


It comes after Shirlie and Spandau Ballet singer Martin have set to work restoring a gorgeous home and have documented the progress on Instagram after moving out of their Hertfordshire family home in the quest for a bigger garden.

Writing in October, Shirlie penned: "Thank you for following my personal page for Home & Garden. Martin & I recently moved to an old Victorian house in need of a lot of work.

"My father was a builder and I learnt a lot from him about transforming houses. I remember as a little girl I would draw house plans and show my dad and ask him if he would build me a house when I get older.

"Well my love of houses is still there but sadly my dad isn’t here anymore but his spirit will be around as I bring this lovely house back to life."

Speaking of the move, Shirlie explained: “I was also looking for a bigger garden as eventually I’d like to rescue more dogs and a few other animals and needed more space. As I said before, I have never been afraid of change, in fact I welcome it.”

Previously Martin and Shirley lived with their two grown up children Roman and Harley, regularly sharing glimpses into the family home’s light and airy décor, particularly the stunning gardens.
