TV PROPERTY expert Martin Roberts shared an emotional post with his fans on Twitter as he was presented with a dilemma about his late father's ashes.

Martin, 59, shared the sad news earlier this year in a tearful video that his father had passed away.

The Homes Under the Hammer star took to Twitter once again as he sought answers from his followers regarding what to do with his dad's ashes.

In order to give his father a fitting send-off, Martin had a friend create a "beautiful box" where he planned to store the ashes and then bury them in the same grave as his late mum.

Martin told his fans that he would be making the journey up to Warrington to do so where many of her father's family and friends still lived.

However, Martin revealed that the box that had been created was too small to hold all the ashes.

Showing fans the amount he had left remaining, he said: "The box is already full.

"I mean, if it wasn't so terrible, I'd be crying right now."

Seeking some answers, he asked: "What do I do? I've got to bury dad's ashes with mum because that's what he wanted. But the box… is full?"

Looking confused and perplexed, Martin continually stroked his chin as he searched for a resolution to his unfortunate predicament.

However, this morning it appeared that the BBC presenter had managed to find a way to store the ashes as he gave fans an update after they were buried.

In a second Twitter video, Martin wrote: "We buried Dad's ashes yesterday. Thank you so much for all your love, kind words and suggestions on what to do with the ashes that wouldn't fit in the casket."

Telling his fans how the day went, Martin said: "We put the casket in the bottom and then I decided I'd get everybody who was there, who wanted to, to scatter the rest of the remains, from a plastic bag, around, as lots of you had suggested.

"So that's what we did."

Martin shared his glee of having his parents 'reunited' and was happy he was able to fulfil his dad's final wish.

Writing underneath the video, one fan said: "Beautiful! They are together forever and meant to be as those weren't your intentions at the start of the day."

Replying back, Martin insisted: "They were watching x."
