Celebrity Big Brother 2013: Brian Dowling wants Joan Collins in the house

Brian Dowling (Big Brother 2013)

Biran Dowling has revealed he wants to see Joan Collins and Davina McCall in the Celebrity Big Brother 2013 house.

The series returns in January for its fourth run on Channel 5, and Brian has high (and unrealistic) hopes for the celebrity line up.

Listing his absolute dream housemates, he told the Metro newspaper: "Joan Collins, Sarah Ferguson, David Haye - just so I could see him shower, Davina McCall - for obvious reasons - and we'd have to bring back Jackie Stallone."

Persuading stars to try the Channel 5 show, Brian insisted it was far more relaxing than I'm A Celebrity!

He explained: "I'm a Celebrity, you're obviously very, very tired. You're very hungry. You're living outside with nature. There's rats, there's snakes, it's dreadful.

"Celebrity Big Brother can be a bit more relaxing. It's safe. You might be living with snakes - let's be honest - but Big Brother takes away the edge."

Brian previously backed rumours suggesting Rylan Clark could be taking part in the series next year.

"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?"

Another set of Celebrity Big Brother housemates will be unveiled soon.
