Martin Roberts issues health update on This Morning

Phillip and Rochelle looked horrified earlier today (Wednesday May 11) as Martin explained how medics syringed dark fluid – which he referred to as “black death liquid” – from around his heart.

“He pulls it out and squirts it into a plastic beaker. Pulls another one and squirts it in. And I was just watching…”
