Former Big Brother host Davina McCall has tipped Brian Dowling and Brian Belo to front the Big Brother, saying the return of the show needed to see a "fresh" start. The 43-year-old told This Morning today that she reckoned the former Big Brother winners would be a good fit for the show.

Despite leaving the show after more than a decade, Davina was adamant it was the right choice for her. "I've done my 11 years and it’s time for a fresh channel, a fresh start, a fresh look, fresh feel," she said. "I think the presenter should be Brian Dowling or Brian Belo, who is the proper true fan, or Emma Willis who I really love.”


Davina continued: "I was so identified by ‘Big Brother’ so obviously when they said they weren’t going to do it anymore, not only was I heartbroken but then I had a lot of soul searching to do and thought, ‘What am I beyond ‘Big Brother’?’

“I love ‘Big Brother’, I still think it’s got legs. I really believe that it’s got a future and Endemol will make it good, I know they will. But I’ve said goodbye and I spent a year saying good bye and I went on and I’ve got other programmes now."

“And I’ve got a busy year so even if I wanted to I wouldn’t do it because I was so synonymous with it and I thought there wouldn’t be life after ‘Big Brother’ and now I’ve found out that there is.”
