Wimbledon legend John Fashanu hosted Deal or No Deal in Nigeria but his talented daughter Amal now takes centre stage


IN the 1990s, John Fashanu became a household name on our TV screens.

After the 56-year-old Wimbledon legend hung up his boots, he presented cult 90s TV show Gladiators alongside Ulrika Jonsson – brightening up our Saturdays with catchphrases including “Awooga”.

John Fashanu has had quite a colourful life since retiring from the game

Then, with the help of Caroline Flack, he co-hosted Fash FC on Bravo TV in 2003.

It was a reality TV show that saw the former Dons centre forward manage a Sunday League team.

And let’s not forget his appearance on the second series of I’m a Celebrity.. Get Me Out of Here, in which he finished second to winner Phil Tufnell.

Fashanu then moved to Nigeria, where in 2007 he hosted Deal or No Deal and became a celebrity in Africa.
