Former Liverpool striker, Michael Owen delighted fans when he gave them a glimpse inside his lavish £4million mansion in the Welsh countryside during an episode of ITV’s Through the Keyhole.
TV host Keith Lemon took viewers for a tour of the Grade II listed Flintshire manor house, which Michael lives in with wife Louise and their four children.
The former Liverpool striker, who also played for Real Madrid and the England national team, bought the house in Northop, near Mold in in 2001.
And viewers were blown away by the mansion complete with its own home gym, pool, cinema and putting green.
Even Keith (Leigh Francis) was blown away by the grandeur, stating it was ‘one of the nicest’ houses they had ever seen on the show.
Before even entering the house, the 42 acres surrounding the country home feature stables for his racehorses, two cottages, two flats, a coach house and three greenhouses.
And for the children, the grounds also host a mini golf course, a mini football pitch and a huge children’s play area – which Keith loved.
The tour inside started with the reception-come-lounge area, which featured traditional wooden panels, oak wooden flooring and oak accents providing a homely yet stylish feel.
Keith then entered the open plan kitchen that was themed around a luxury silver and black colour scheme, contrasting with the wooden beams.
However, viewers were denied access into any of the bedrooms – with Michael requesting the camera crew not to film in their private quarters.
Instead, Keith visited the private gym, heated indoor swimming pool and hot tub.
As if that wasn’t enough, the mansion also comes complete with a games room and cocktail bar themed around football and Michael’s career.
But fans of the show were stunned when the BT Sports pundit admitted to only ever watching eight films in his life – despite having a large private cinema.
With the signed Liverpool, Manchester United and England shirts mounted on the wall and footballs decorating the bar, it took no time for actor Danny Dyer, comedy actor Sally Phillips, and football pundit Chris Kamara to guess the correct homeowner.
Through The Keyhole is on every Saturday from 10pm on ITV.
