Brian Dowling has said that he wants to see Kerry Katona and her mum Sue enter the Celebrity Big Brother house next month. Brian told Star magazine that the pair, who were rumoured to be entering the house earlier this month, would make for great TV.
"They have to go in!", he told the weekly glossy magazine. "I love Kerry's show and I love how Sue wore her pyjamas for a newspaper interview once. I'm sure there would be comparisons between them and Jade Goody and her mum Jackiey Budden, but they are different people."
"I think if someone can afford to pay them a million then go for it because they will make amazing viewing," he said.
Meanwhile 33-year-old Brian - who will be taking over from Davina McCall when the hit reality series returns from the dead next month - admitted he was being kept in the dark about the new series as much as the fans.
"I still don't even know who is going in!" he said.
The Irish telly presenter made his first trip to the Big Brother house as host only yesterday, writing on Twitter: "In car on way to the BB House!!!Super excited and nervous!!!I'm nearly live on Ch5!!!"
Big Brother returns to Channel 5 next month with a Celebrity version. Stars lined up for the series include Boy George, Imogen Thomas and Natasha Giggs.
