PROP­ERTY ex­perts hailed the trans­for­ma­tion of a for­mer gro­cers and beauty shop after it ap­peared on TV se­ries Homes Un­der the Ham­mer.

Pre­sen­ter and for­mer Eng­land foot­baller Dion Dublin vis­ited the premises on Newchurch Road in Stack­steads after it was snapped up at auc­tion by Michelle Proc­ter.

The £40,000 makeover was car­ried out by Michelle’s fa­ther Jack Proc­ter and part­ner Chris Dal­ton and re­ceived praise from Dublin and lo­cal prop­erty ex­perts.

Dublin said: “Wow this is quite the trans­for­ma­tion. This place looks ready to run a ●● Michelle Proc­ter suc­cess­ful busi­ness from. Dad Jack has cer­tainly been busy. [He] has done a bril­liant, pro­fes­sional job.”

Andy Lee, from Reeds Rains es­tate agents, said: “The changes are astro­nom­i­cal, far in ex­cess of what I ex­pected the prop­erty to look like.

“They’ve done a su­perb job all the way through.

“It’s prac­ti­cal and looks good and up­stairs has been done to a very high stan­dard.”
