Celebrity Big Brother 2013: Brian Dowling backs Rylan Clark!

Brian Dowling

Celebrity Big Brother 2013 host Brian Dowling has said he'd love X Factor's Rylan Clark to join the show's line up.

It was reported last week that Rylan has been inundated with offers for reality shows, including Big Brother.

Former X Factor act Frankie Cocozza proved a surprise hit on the show in January of this year, finishing as runner up in the series.

Speaking to the Metro newspaper, Brian said he would approve Ryaln's spot in the line up.

"I'd love Rylan on the show. I think Rylan would be great purely because he's camp, he's loud, he's colourful and he's got a personality and that makes for the best housemates, and he's very, very popular right now," he said. "He's got a big fanbase from being on The X Factor. I think he'd be a great housemate.

"I'd like to see Rylan in a situation where he's uncomfortable. You know, how does Rylan react to conflict?"

And clearly keen to pinch other reality telly stars for next year's CBB, Brian revealed he also hoped to get Tory MP Nadine Dorries in the house.

"Nadine would have been equally as good on Big Brother as well as I'm a Celebrity because of what people think about her," he said.

"People like strong, opinionated women. She's a bitch, she's got an opinion and people like that."

Rylan recently revealed he'd be up for taking part in reality shows if the offers came.

Although the 24-year-old wouldn’t appear on Strictly, saying “my legs are too long, they’d have to partner me with a bloke”, a stint on I’m A Celebrity could be a way forward.

Rylan said: “I don’t see no reason for not going in the jungle”.
