DANCING On Ice and X Factor star and Ben Foden has turned his back on fame for surprisingly normal job.
The former rugby ace is said to have set his sights on being an estate agent in New York.
Ben has ditched the limelight for an other lucrative profession.
He has been listed as a real estate agent in New York.
It came after Ben stunned his fans by announcing his retirement from rugby last March.
The 36-year-old said he drawing the curtain on his 18-year career after “a lot of deliberation”.
In August 2019, Ben shocked fans when he revealed he’d married New Yorker Jackie Belanoff Smith after just two weeks of “serious” dating.
The athlete wasted no time to announce the news right after getting hitched, posting an endearing photo on the social platform that confirmed the couple’s union.
“This last year has been by far my toughest and most turbulent for a number of reasons that many of you I’m sure are aware of, in some way or another,” Ben captioned the photo.
“The world has a funny way of working things out, many people think I’m a bad person – as I’m sure they’ll be many nasty comments left under this post by keyboard warriors a plenty.”

Ben was previously married to Saturdays singer Una Healy for six years and have two children together.
They wed on June 30, 2012, just after the birth of their daughter, Aoife Belle.
Son Tadhg John was born on February 2, 2015.
Describing how he met Una, Ben told Attitude magazine he was having lunch with his agent, who had questioned his love life.
He added: “He [his agent] asked if there was anyone I was thinking about, then The Saturdays popped up on the music channel in the corner, and I said, ‘Oh the one with the blue tights’.
“The next thing I know, I got a text saying, ‘she’s expecting your call’.”
They were set to move to the US where he is to play for a rugby team in New York.
But Una called off the move when she ended their marriage.
