La Sexta broadcast a new installment of El Camino a Casa on Thursday, June 1. Pocholo Martínez-Bordiú traveled to Marbella with Albert Espinosa and in his interview he revealed the origin of his name.
Pocholo, whose real name is José María, explained that he has been called that since childhood. "My mother, at the age of 18, went to a party in Madrid. Then my father saw her and said 'look, I'm going to marry you in no time,'" he recounted.
"Overall, he married her and got her pregnant. So what happened? They gave her an injection, those needles were boiled, they went in a kind of little iron casserole. She got hepatitis, the needle had hepatitis, it was wrong boiled, and he passed it to me. I was born seven months old. At that time, imagine, a man from a house had to go to women in the morning to ask for milk because there was no powdered milk or anything. And that's how it was. It's little, It's little, Pocholo," he said.
Pocholo, son of Clotilde Bassó y Roviralta and José María Martínez-Bordiú, dedicated some nice words to his mother. "My mother has always been my talisman, for me she is the greatest thing in the world. I miss her a lot. She is the woman who has given everything for me, the woman who has suffered for me, who almost died having me. Then she had four more children. It was not only the birth, then many things have also happened to me in life that she has been present, "he said.
"Maybe in my life I have been in the hospital for seven years. I have had many motorcycle accidents. Then also when I was at Hotel Glam they found me a thymoma. They had to open me up," explained the guest, who showed the scar from the intervention. "At home there were two mottos. One: mom is not lied to. That has been recorded in me for a lifetime. Mom is not lied to and not lazy," he added.
Espinosa took Pocholo to the doors of her school, the Ecos de Marbella center. "If you want, I jump over the fence," joked the interviewee. "What always happened to me is that I broke something. There was a swing, I threw myself and broke my arm. One of those, every day," he explained.
"And then, when we returned home, I went with the children of the director of the Los Monteros hotel, whose name was Javier Picazo. The lady, the person who took care of us, told me, 'look how Picazo's children come and look how you come you, malaje'. I was a relatively wild child, I have not changed, "he admitted.
"Then he also took a lot of fights with me because, when we came up, on the bus, you have seen that there is a giant slope. We would all get behind and the bus would stop," he recalled.
