With Jermaine Pennant's infamous appearance on the Jeremy Kyle show and Harry Redknapp's impending reality tv debut in I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here, it got the office thinking about what other football stars should feature in TV shows.
Stephen Ireland - Catfish
Host Nev Schulman is approached by the FAI in order to get to the bottom of how many grannies Stephen Ireland actually has.
Charlie Austin - WWE Raw
The Southampton striker's recent tirade against the officials for robbing his side of a perfectly legitimate goal in their 1-1 draw with Watford show that Austin has the necessary pashun in order to take his skills to the ring.
Declan Rice - Who Do You Think You Are?
This one does not need too much explanation
The Weakest Link - Steven Gerrard
Steven Gerrard takes over the Anne Robinson role as he publicly dresses down each player at the end of a match with needlessly harsh put downs.
Flog it! - Harry Redknapp
A far more suitable TV programme for 'Arry Redknapp would be BBC's Flog It! The former Spurs' boss' skills as an *ahem* wheeler dealer would be easily translated to the world of auctioneering. Not that he'd admit it.
Love Island - Stephen Ward
After the Ireland left back's surprise starring role in a recent leaked WhatsApp voicenote, who wouldn't want him to be the narrator of Love Island and cover the various backstabbings and shenanigans in his own inimitable style.
Bad Ink - Damien Delaney
American reality show Bad Ink travels around the US fixing people's questionable inkwork and Damien Delaney could do with some amendments to his ink. The Cork City centre back has a shocking tattoo of a clown on his arm that he surely regrets now. James McClean would be another good option for this.
Gogglebox - Martin O'Neill
Perhaps the best way to get Ireland playing better football would be to threaten O'Neill with having to sit through a couple of Ireland games on the telly and explain to us how his team are so shite.
Britain's next top model - Loris Karius
Should probably be changed to Turkey's next top model, but the German would certainly clean up if he decided to hang up his boots and focus on modelling full time, and there are those who would argue that the error-prone stopper has already begun that process.
Loris Karius' Instagram video is even better with Baywatch music. pic.twitter.com/yRK8UFWV5R

Jackass - Mario Balotelli
Throwing darts at a youth team player, setting his house on fire with fireworks, imagine the kind of havoc the Italian would wreak if his behaviour was encouraged.
