New Big Brother presenter Brian Dowling has said his dream Celebrity Big Brother housemate would be Britney Spears. The new host of the Channel 5 series, which launches next month, told new! magazine that the US singer would make for amazing viewing in the house.

The 33-year-old Irish TV personality also gaggingrevealed he wanted to see 'Octomum' Nadya Suleman - an American who gave birth to eight babies in 2009 - inside this year's Big Brother house.

Other favourites of the Ultimate Big Brother winner include Jedward and Charlie Sheen.


“Jedward would be funny to watch,” he said. “I’ve interviewed them and they’re so great and so positive.

“I’d really like to see them go up against the likes of Charlie Sheen.”

Brian also told the glossy mag that he's been working out to get in shape for his big telly debut in just a few weeks' time!

“I’ve been eating a lot more healthily, and I’ve been hitting the gym to drop a few pounds. I’d not been in two-and-a-half years and I’m already feeling better.”

And Brian cheekily added it would be great to date one of this year's contestants!

“Dating a contestant?” he said. “That would look great! Well, maybe if they’re the winner!”

Celebrity Big Brother launches on August 17 on Channel 5.
