Myleene Klass for Big Brother, Brian Dowling for Little Brother say reports

Big Brother (Generic)

The Daily Express has tipped MyLeene Klass to host Big Brother on Channel 5 today, adding that Brian Dowling is in the frame for Big Brother's Little Brother. Confirming the return of the spin-off show, the Express also named Joanna Lumley and Martine McCutcheon as possible Celebrity Big Brother housemates.

The broadcaster has just a few months to secure names for the new series, which will run for four months this August. Other names tipped to enter include last year's Big Brother winner Josie Gibson and Olympic rowing champion James Cracknell.

Despite tipping Myleene to front the main show however the paper also suggested Cheryl Cole and Emma Willis were both "in the frame" to host the programme.

The paper claims that this year Big Brother will be a little kinder to the house's inhabits, by offering a world of “playfulness and decadence,” instead of punishing stars with deprivation and hard graft. On the menu for the celebs are regular champagne parties, fun games and even a telephone to call their loved ones!

The show's creative director will be Nick Samwell-Smith for Initial Productions.
