Roman Kemp has left fans in shock after sharing a gruesome fake picture of his hand with a nail sticking out of the middle.

The 28 year old, whose dad Martin recently spoke out about male suicide, first took to his Instagram stories to warn his 1.4million followers about the graphic snap as he wrote: "Warning. Next story is gross."

He then shared the picture which showed his bloody hand bruised over with a long nail sticking out from the top, underneath the knuckle of his third finger.

Over this, he offered a short explanation as he wrote: "Note to self… check where your hand is when using a nail gun…"


Roman waited 30 minutes to build the suspense amongst his followers as many were unable to tell whether it was fake or not.

He finally shared an update as he wrote: "it's not real… I'm okay…. please stop calling my mum," followed by a crying with laughter emoji.

Fans immediately took to Twitter to voice their thoughts as one person wrote: "I kept asking myself how could he get that injured until 2 seconds ago…thanks Roman".

A second said: "haha imagine going ‘sorry guys hold off on the hospital gotta put this on my story’".

A third thought it was fake before he announced it was, as they wrote: "@romankemp stop playing with makeup".


It comes after Roman recently confessed he's desperate to go grey so he can be "sexy" like his dad Martin.

The radio host explained that he feels as though he comes in second-best compared to his silver-fox dad, 59, and is hoping he'll become more physically appealing as he ages.

“That’s been my life. I’ve grown up watching my dad bring home sexiest man of the year trophies," he explained to The Sun Online.

"I’m a bit upset the generation skipped a little bit. He’s still the best looking one in the house."

He went on to explain how his mum Shirlie Holliman, 59, thinks his mindset about the situation is "ridiculous".

“I low-key can’t wait to go grey. I’m like hopefully I’ll go grey in a good way like him," Roman continued.

The TV personality added: "The person I always think about in this scenario is my mum, because my mum just thinks it’s all just ridiculous.”

The duo front their own ITV show, Martin and Roman's Weekend Best, where Roman explained he's been enjoying watching his dad improve as a presenter.

He said: “We had Sunday Best and with that going to Weekend Best, I was absolutely terrified. The workload is unbelievable, and when you’ve got the radio show it’s tough.

“But at the end of the day seeing my dad get better in terms of presenting has been really good.”
