Homes Under the Hammer star Martell Maxwell has recalled a spat with Mark Lamarr.
Martell has revealed she took action after Lamarr, who presented Never Mind the Buzzcocks in the 90s, made a “vile comment”.
She wrote in her weekly Tele column: “I once overheard Lamarr tell a journalist (for no good reason) he hoped her family died of cancer.
“I was so incensed I followed him around the party, tapped him on the back and told him he shouldn’t be so vile. He laughed and said: ‘I’m sure she’ll get over it’.
“I reckon karma has come back to bite him given his notable absence from telly for years.”
Former journalist Martell, who now fronts BBC daytime show Homes Under The Hammer, also criticised Spice Girl Mel B for apparently trying to sue her “even though the story was true”.
But the Dundonian added that she has met “plenty of lovely celebs, from Sean Connery to Tom Cruise”.
She continued: “The things we teach our kids – that manners cost nothing and it’s nice to be nice – shouldn’t change because you’re rich or famous.”
