- It’s official, the Ultimate Big Brother Housemate, Brian Dowling will host Channel 5’s Big Brother.
Dowling is really looking forward to his new role. He said: “I am so excited about this opportunity to host one of the most talked-about shows on TV. It is 10 years since I won Big Brother so what better way to celebrate and mark that anniversary than to be asked to host the new series. It’s on a new channel and a fresh start for the show that has kept the nation entertained for 11 years and I am so excited to be a part of it!
He also tweeted:
“I am very happy to say that I shall be hosting Big Brother this year for Ch5!It still hasn’t sunk in yet!!”
How is he starting his gig as BB host?
“First day as official BB presenter and off to the gym!!Not what I imagined!!!x”
Emma Willis, who hosted the spin off show on Channel 4 (Big Brother’s Little Brother) will host the spinoff show on channel 5, Big Brother’s Bit On The Side. It sounds like the show will be similar to the channel 4 one, with evicted housemates, famous superfans and pop culture experts all appearing on the show.
Also, returning to Big Brother is Marcus Bentleigh, the narrator of the show.
Celebrity Big Brother will kick things off on Channel 5 on August 18 (rumoured start date). There are rumours that Amy Whinehouse is amongst the celebrity housemates but I really can’t see this happening. I’ll be glued to the show if she does.
The new series of Big Brother will start when Celebrity Big Brother ends.I don’t mean to be cynical but, I wonder how different this show will be to the one that became same old same old, on channel 4?
That said, good luck to Brian Dowling and Emma Willis!
About The Bellissimo Files
I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents!
As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen!
This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t.
Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings.
Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions.
I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk)
The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site.
