Homes Under The Hammer and ex-Man Utd star Dion Dublin signs up for Celebrity Masterchef

HOMES Under The Hammer star Dion Dublin has signed up for Celebrity Masterchef, The Sun can reveal.

The 51-year-old footballer-turned-presenter will be joining the likes of Katie Price and Joe Swash in the upcoming series of the BBC show.

Dion first shot to fame as a professional footballer, playing for England as well as Manchester United and Aston Villa.

The sportsman retired in 2008, and can now be found hosting Homes Under The Hammer alongside Martin Roberts and Martel Maxwell.

Fans now have the opportunity to get to know Dion better as he shows off his skills in the kitchen.

He previously admitted that he usually leaves cooking to his wife Louise.


The star said in a past interview: "My wife’s a better cook than me by a million miles.

"She does most of the cooking as I’m out at work, and always makes sure I’m fed and watered."

And Dion will have some tough competition on the show, with The Sun revealing earlier this week that Katie Price and Joe Swash were leading the new Celebrity Masterchef line-up.

Katie will be making her prime time TV comeback on the show, with a source telling us at the time: "Katie’s really excited for people to see a different side to her – she’s actually a really good cook, and wants to show off her kitchen skills.

“She won’t crumble under the pressure of cooking for Gregg Wallace and John Torode, because she has to cook for five fussy kids every night!”

Joe is also a capable cook, previously appearing on CBBC's Dish Up with oldest son Harry, 13, where he went from "master of the microwave to king of the kitchen".
