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 played Centre-Back, Centre-Forward and is now presenting Homes Under The Hammer, Dion Dublin is nothing if not versatile

One man will be more pleased than the rest – Jeremy Clarkson.
This news that Dion Dublin is joining ‘Homes Under The Hammer’ is going to take a lot of heat out of the Clarkson announcement.

The news has given people some other creative, and seemingly more likely, ideas.
Hang on…Dion Dublin is the new presenter of Homes Under The Hammer? Would have thought Harry Redknapp hosting Bargain Hunt was more likely

But overall it looks like the nation is set for unprecedented levels of unproductive afternoons.
Dion Dublin joining Homes Under the Hammer is like something Alan Partridge would come up with. I hasten to add, I’m a fan of the idea.
