Phil Spencer cleaned up dog poo while filming 'Phil Spencer: Secret Agent'.
The famed property presenter claims he's been forced to pick up "an awful lot" of excrement from the pets of home owners when embarking on visits to houses which are failing to sell on the housing market, and has been shocked by the unhygienic conditions of some homes.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "When I'm filming 'Secret Agent' and the houses seem to be less than tip top, that's the reason I'm there because they haven't sold in a year or two so I try and help. I certainly have come across some houses that have fallen on bad times.
"I've cleared up an awful lot of dog poo over the last four months. We filmed in one house and I stepped in dog poo, and then I looked and my other foot was in dog poo as well. It wasn't a high moment."
The cleaning doesn't stop there, as the 44-year-old property expert - who also stars alongside Kirstie Allsopp in 'Location, Location, Location' - says he's been roped into doing other household chores in a desperate bid to help put run-down houses back onto the market.
He added: "Yeah. I've had to clean baths, I've seen rooms full of boxes, pets being fed on dining tables. You know, it's not rocket science to present a house for sale."
