Flog It: Paul Martin visits an auction at Rochester Cathedral
Paul Martin is known to many for his love of antiques as he presents the day time classic Flog It!. While the series was cancelled back in 2018, it continues to be a regular on our screens thanks to repeats and Paul remains a familiar face to fans. But what is known of his family life?
How many children does Paul Martin have?
Paul started presenting as part of Flog It! when the series first aired in 2002.
While the show brought him closer to antiques, it also allowed Paul to cross paths with his now-wife Charlotte Godfrey who was a production coordinator for the series.
After hitting it off on the set of BBC show, Paul and Charlotte later got married in 2007.

The couple have since welcomed their two children – daughter Meredith and son Dylan – who Paul hope will one day share his passion for antiques.
While talking of his love of all things antiques, he said: “Antiques are my oxygen – I live and breathe them.
“I’m always hungry for knowledge, and you learn something from everyone you talk to.
“I can’t stop buying, but in my defence, the antiques I buy are mostly practical.
“I buy them because of their wonderful history of craftmanship, or as a document of social history, which has got a real identity and tells a story of that area.
“We are giving it a new lease of life by loving it and making it survive for another century. And hopefully, my kids will love it and pass it on to their kids.”
In a previous interview, Paul has spoken of how his investment in his antique collection will one day benefit his children.
He explained: “I invest all my money in antiques. To me it’s oxygen, it’s fresh air.
