New Celebrity Big Brother host Brian Dowling has said he's excited to find out this year's housemates, telling the Daily Star today that bosses have refused to spill any details to him. Given the former Big Brother winner's big mouth, we're not surprised...

Brian will front coverage of the new series of the show alongside Emma Willis, who is hosting new spin-off Big Brother's Bit On The Side.

"I’m really excited Emma’s on board," Brian told the tabloid this morning. "She’s such a gifted TV presenter. I’m hoping we’ll be a dream team together!"


Brian's first job as the new host will be to take charge of next month’s Celebrity Big Brother series, but he's being kept in the dark just like everyone else!

"We’ve got the celeb show first and I’m super-excited and nervous about meeting the famous people," he said. "I haven’t been told who they are yet but with the rumours that have been flying around it’s going to be very exciting.

"I think after the celeb bit I’ll feel more relaxed and be in a stride, a lot more confident and comfortable.

"It’s going to be about having fun this series and I can’t wait."

The new series is expected to launch on August 18.
