Martin Kemp may be best known for starting out as the bassist in Spandau Ballet, but he’s since found even more fame with his TV and film career. After years of acting in soaps, dramas and even films, he’s now turned his hand to presenting – and it’s a family affair. The 58-year old star is now presenting a Sunday chat show alongside his son Roman Kemp, 27.
The father and son duo are now working together for the ITV show, Martin & Roman’s Sunday Best!
The show includes plenty of celebrity guests – no doubt friends of the presenters themselves – as well as talking to viewers and playing games.
The programme was launched during the months of lockdown, which meant social distancing measures had to be put in place for filming.
Martin said of the show’s launch: “Lockdown has been a really tough time for everyone and we are just pleased to be able to bring some feel-good entertainment and hopefully put a smile on people’s faces on Sunday mornings. And what could be better than working with my son Roman! Brilliant guests and lots of stuff to make you laugh.”
Roman added that he loved working with his dad and was looking forward to starting the new gig.

The source, who spoke to The Sun, said that “the package includes their expenses as well as their base pay, but it’s not bad for so little work”.
But while they’re earning the same amount for the new programme, which of the two celebrities has the biggest net worth?
Martin Kemp net worth
Martin Kemp is estimated to have a net worth of £3.2 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
The English star has made his millions through his music, as part of Spandau Ballet.
He joined his older brother Gary Kemp in the band, which was originally called the Gentry, and later renamed.
But after chart success, Martin then went onto his TV and film career where he became well known for playing the villain.
Martin starred alongside his brother Gary in the critically acclaimed The Krays film before heading to soapland.
One of his most iconic roles was as Steve Owen in EastEnders, for which he won many awards.
His troubled character was eventually killed off in a car chase with his Albert Square rival, Phil Mitchell.
Roman Kemp net worth
Despite his age, Roman is not too far behind his dad, with an estimated net worth of £1.1million according to Celebrity Net Worth.
The young star has made his money through his radio and presenting work.
Roman has hosted Capital FM since November 2014.
However, he really shot to the spotlight when he took part in the ITV show, I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
Roman was on the 2019 series and finished in third place after winning the hearts of the viewers and his campmates.
The stint in the jungle would have reportedly earned the radio host £40,000.
The popular star has grown up in a famous household, with both his parents being household names.
Roman’s mother is Shirlie Kemp, who sang with Wham! as part of Pepsi & Shirlie.
His godfather was also the late singer George Michael.
