The new host of Big Brother, Brian Dowling has spoken to OK!TV about his job on the revamped show, describing the whole situation as "surreal". The former Big Brother winner also told OK!TV's Matt Johnson and Kate Walsh that "amazing" adverts for the show would start next week.
The 2001 winner gave his tips to become a champion Big Brother housemate, explaining: "You've got to go in with no agenda, no gamelan, and be yourself. Also don't be expecting anything for yourself, enjoy the experience.
"Don't take the show too seriously, enjoy it. Remember you have a life outside the house, don't let it consume you."
Asked who he wanted to see on the Celebrity version of the show, which starts in the middle of August, Brian joked: "Mel Gibson... with an alcohol task, that'd be fun!"
And he admitted he was being kept in the dark about everything! "I've not even seen the house," Brian laughed.
