Ex-Footballer Dion Dublin Joins Bbc's Homes Under The Hammer

Recommended Posts

He had a keen eye for scoring goals, but now Dion Dublin will be able to focus on his other love - property.

The ex-England striker has been named as a new presenter of the BBC's popular morning TV show Homes Under The Hammer.

The 45-year-old, who played for Manchester United, Coventry and Aston Villa, will join Martin Roberts and Lucy Alexander for the 19th series.

"I still want to achieve. I want to learn the art of presenting," he told BBC Radio 5 live.

"I sat down with Lucy and Martin, who gave me words of advice."

The four-times capped England international started playing in 1988 and retired 20 years later.

Dublin, who invented an instrument called a dube, was asked if he will have an influence on the music used in the show. "I've put a lot of CDs on the desk of the series producer."

I'd love to see Ronnie O'Sullivan do this show (given his views on the housing market). Given his unpredictable nature as well, it would be compelling viewing.

I dont think the show is intended to be compelling in any meaningful sense.

Given its broadcast time it seems to have the one aim of getting retiree's into BTLing.

I saw some of this programme yesterday.

One purchaser bought two flats unseen. V pleased with himself & explained "you can't lose with London property."

Another purchaser bought a shop unseen.

The mania continues to grow.

I used to like Dion. He must be Desperate, if you ask me.

I will now call him, Dion Desperate.

How about Desperate Dion - he might get an entry into the Dandy comic and his own cow pie.
