AFL great Warwick Capper is – in football parlance – the newest recruit to the world’s oldest profession.
The former Sydney Swans high-flyer Capper has revealed he’s now the owner of Westminster Secrets, a brothel based in the Melbourne suburb of Oakleigh.

The establishment is just around the corner from Capper’s childhood home and old football ground.
He told 7NEWS it took six months to arrange his licence and a six-figure sum to renovate the building.
“The secret’s out, Warwick’s back in town for all your needs,” Capper – who recently turned 60 – told 7NEWS.

“We spent a couple hundred grand on the place and it looks brand new now.”
Brothel owner is the latest career move for the colourful AFL figure who made a name for himself in the the AFL by taking huge speccies and wearing very tight shorts in the 1980s.

On the Gold Coast Capper was a ‘metre maid” and later ran, unsucessfully, for mayor.
State politics was also in his sights, before he missed the registration deadline.
The former Swan – who moved to the Brisbane Bears for the 1988 season – has also been a lollipop man, owned a mobile coffee van (aptly named ‘Cappercino’), and he once appeared on Celebrity Big Brother.
“If Warwick has his way, he’ll be taking his brothel empire national, and he’s already scouting for new locations,” Capper said.
When asked what other states would he target outside of Melbourne and Sydney, Capper replied: “Probably national; I’m big in Tassie and Adelaide, City of Churches.”
Capper likened his business model to that of successful fast food chains.

“Bit like McDonalds, let’s have a big mac, one with the lot … tell (‘em) ‘Wizard Capper’ sent you with the new teeth and the tight shorts,” he said.
Capper said he’ll be on site at the brothel once or twice a month holding a barbecue for clients.
“I’ve got some great ads and promos lined up where I’m dressed as a pimp daddy,” Capper told the Herald Sun.
“In another one I’m dressed as 007 and I’ve got the catch cry, it won’t make you James Bond but it will make you Roger Moore …. Get it?
“The place is s*** hot, it’s been refurbished and has a pole, which I will make great use of and a spa.
“It’s great, I’ll be bringing all my sport mates here who I know like to frequent such places. There will be a long line out the door, you just wait and see.”
