The performance comes after Martin’s celebrity son Roman has told how he heard ‘loads of voices’ and couldn’t stop crying when he contemplated taking his own life in 2019. 

The presenter, 28, had a candid discussion about mental health and said he ‘couldn’t stop worrying about everything’ during that period of his life.

Speaking on Steven Bartlett’s Diary Of A CEO podcast, Roman said he contemplated jumping in front of a train after he came off antidepressants.

He said: ‘When you’re in that zone, in an absolute spiral, everything goes into a blur. All I know I was in my house sat in my pants and I couldn’t stop crying.

‘I couldn’t stop worrying about everything. My head was going like a whirlwind. I was worrying about stuff that wasn’t even logical.

‘I can’t describe what my brain was telling me. Anything that could have been a problem in my head, was a problem.

‘You’re thinking you look bad, you’ve not done this, your tax bill, are you ever going to do this… loads of voices.

‘At that point I thought, ‘I don’t know what to do’. The only thing I could think of was, ‘OK, I’ll take my own life. That’s the only way to stop this.’

Roman said his mother Shirlie happened to call him at this time and kept him on the phone until she was able to get home.

He said: ‘My mum called me. She kept me on the phone for about an hour. In my head I was like, ‘I’ll just go to the train station and jump in front of a train.’

‘That’s honestly what went through my head. My mum got there within an hour. It’s a strange place to be. They call it a mental breakdown for a reason. Those moments are so intense that your mind implodes.’

Speaking further about suicidal ideation, Roman said: ‘The problem is no matter what pain you’re going through in your head or sadness, you don’t get rid of that by taking your own life. 

‘All you are doing is, you are transferring it to everyone around you.’
