Martin suggested they draw straws, but Larry shot him down: "We’ll get you something to drink through them, don’t worry about that!"
"What’s wrong with that as an idea?" asked the property guru.
"They’re sorting it amongst themselves," Larry asserted.
However, Sam then decided Martin's idea was a good one. "Wish I’d thought of it," he quipped.
Martin and Larry went off for a seemingly private chat, with the former apologising for "antagonising you with my suggestions".
Larry accused him of "trying to seize control", claiming: "Your tendency is to go 'wallop' straight in. You can't impose your way."
What they didn't know what that Sam and Scarlett Moffatt were listening in. "Martin hasn’t done anything wrong," Scarlett insisted.
There was more love for Martin later in the day, when Joel Dommett said: "I just love Martin so much, he’s an unbelievable human being, he’s so funny. I don’t like it when people shout at him, I feel protective over him, like a teddy bear."
Carol Vorderman shared his sentiment. "I quite like Martin you know. In his way he’s trying his best," she commented. "He’s not a bad person, I’m very honest with him but in a fond way when he starts going off."
Larry, however, still had his reservations. Speaking to Wayne, he moaned: "Every time something happens, Martin’s always worried about himself."
Wayne described the Homes Under The Hammer presenter as "harmless", but Larry hit back: "He’s harmless because he’s rendered harmless. He’s a lower middle class snob, that’s what he is."
