We go inside Michael Owen's home - at last!

Did you catch a year in the life of Michael Owen last night on Sky One? We got a brief glimpse around his £2m home at Soughton Hall, Sychdyn - nice pool and gym, Michael - and a good look around the paddocks.

Now I finally understand what's going on there after regularly driving past his country pile - en route to the A55 - because, over the last year, the fields around his home have been vastly improved.

The reason for this has been because Soughton Hall ties in with his new venture in horse racing, an impressive stables called Manor House at Malpas, Cheshire [more info from].

Whilst Manor House has the gallops and facilities to train race horses - one of Michael and his wife Louise's main passions - their home at Soughton Hall will house their 'blood stock', he told the cameras last night.

It was fascinating to see the other side of Michael away from football - and just how privileged his lifestyle is with jaunts in the helicopter - but he and Louise still seem pretty grounded, don't you think?
