Former Manchester United and Aston Villa striker Dion Dublin is set to take on a new role on daytime television, presenting Homes Under The Hammer.

It might be considered a strange career choice, but really it’s what we all dream about, isn’t it? Dion Dublin is living our dream.

Dion says: “I am thrilled to be joining Martin and Lucy on Homes Under The Hammer. I have a passion for property and look forward to meeting people on the show who share that passion.”

Now, where did we put the list of strange things Dion’s done? There’s a new addition to sit proudly alongside the Dube.

 

 

He was a bit nervous about us finding out, but we’ll all be nice – won’t we…?

 

 

People are even planning to book time off work so they don’t miss his first appearance.

 

We’ve high hopes for you, Dion. Finally Homes Under The Hammer can be taken to the next level!

 

 

 

 

 

One man will be more pleased than the rest – Jeremy Clarkson.

 

The news has given people some other creative, and seemingly more likely, ideas.

 

But overall it looks like the nation is set for unprecedented levels of unproductive afternoons.
