Big Brother 2013: Marcus Bentley wants less 'wannabe' housemates

Marcus Bentley

Big Brother 2013 narrator Marcus Bentley has said he doesn't want to see another house full of wannabes.

The Geordie voice over will be back on the show for his fourteenth series in the summer and is keen for the show to see some new types of personalities.

It follows reports that bosses were going 'back to basics' with this year's housemates, which are said to be a real mix of people rather than the fame obsessed 18-30 somethings that recent series have showcased.

Speaking to LatestPop, Marcus said: "I want to meet new and different people from all walks of life.

"I don't want to meet carbon copies of previous housemates. I want to learn things about exciting individuals and I want to laugh and cry."

He continued: "That's a tall order for the producers to deliver. The show is still basically the so called social experiment that it always was. The house, tasks and look of the show have just got better.

Meanwhile, Marcus claimed that new presenter Emma Willis would glam up the show when it launches next month.

He added: "[She'll bring] Glamour, class and fun. Emma Willis about to become an even bigger star. She quite simply has it all. And she really is so lovely."

Big Brother 2013 starts next month on Channel 5.
