Emma Willis has confessed her addiction to reality telly, declaring herself as "reality freak" in a chat with TellyMix. The host of new Big Brother spin-off show Bit On The Side admitted she couldn't get enough of shows including Strictly Come Dancing and The X Factor.

Emma told us: "I'm a reality freak, I watch all of them… Strictly, X Factor, I’m A Celeb. I love Entourage, Lost, Alan Carr... he's brilliant.

"I watched News Night last night, that's with Paxman right? He'd be great as a housemate… but he'd drive you up the wall. I find myself watching Peppa Pig in the night a lot... not through choice!"


But it was, of course, Big Brother that Emma was truly obsessed with.

"I'm out of the closet with my obsession," she says. "There’s no hiding it and I think I did quite well in our quizzes last year [on Little Brother]. I’m out three and proud!

"The only person who has watched more is Davina. When I’m at the house all I do is watch the live feed."

Asked why she loved the hit reality series, Emma replied: "I think I’m really nosy, people interest me and I like watching them and I do it whether I’m in a cab or restaurant or watching Big Brother. I’m intrigued by them... and nosy."

Emma hosts Celebrity Big Brother's Bit On The Side on Channel 5, airing at 10:30PM from August 18.
