Dion Dublin has made many debuts in his time, from Manchester United and Coventry to Aston Villa and Leicester - but his latest one today had the former footballer "physically shaking".

Dublin made his first appearance on BBC show Homes Under The Hammer this morning, a programme that follows buyers of properties at auctions and how they plan to turn a profit.

He joins the original line-up of Martin Roberts and Lucy Alexander to add some depth to the squad.

“Kicking off the 19th series, Martin, Lucy and Dion will follow three properties bought at auction, the renovations the buyers have planned and problems they encounter and whether they have made a gain or a loss from buying under the hammer," the BBC said in a statement when it was announced he had joined the show.

Watching the show today, Dublin tweeted: Why am I physically shaking watching this #Itsverystrange.

So did Dublin hit the back of the net on his first appearance or score an own goal? We take a look at some of the best reaction on Twitter...
