As the romantic partner of one of the most emblematic names in British sport, Nancy Dell'Olio certainly knows a thing or two about the footballing lifestyle.

And now she'll be putting her knowledge to work as presenter of a new programme that takes viewers into the glamorous homes of English football players.

The vivacious Italian girlfriend of England football manager Sven Goran-Eriksson is fronting Footballers' Cribs, an MTV show which launches on Sunday. The first episode peeks into such homes as Liverpool player Harry Kewell's Cheshire mansion which, among other amenities, includes two plasma screens in one of the bathrooms and the home of Blackburn's Robbie Savage, with its opulent bedroom with white leather bed and a driveway lined with Ferraris.

"Nancy is a dream signing for us," said series executive producer Sean Murphy. "She's the first lady of football, so is in the perfect position to give us a real insider's view."
