Brian Dowling has said he's still unsure of the first words of the Celebrity Big Brother 2011 live shows. Speaking ahead of tonight's launch, Brian said he still didn't have a clue about his opening line - but feared repeating one of Davina's famous lines when the evictions start!

Brian told TellyMix about tonight's launch: "I’m looking forward to hosting it and what that brings, but I’m also quite nervous… that’s the only thing, when the show open’s I’ll be sh**ting it.

"But I’m looking forward to the show being back, I think the fact it’s moving to Channel 5 makes it easier because it’s a new show… even though it’s not. It helps me relax a bit."


Asked about his what his first words will be, Brian joked: "S**t!"

He continued: "Oh my god, do you know, it’s my biggest fear…saying ‘Big Brother house, this is Davina you are live on Channel 4 please do not swear’. I’ve been hearing that 11 years. I know for a fact it’s going to happen. Oh Christ, if I said that!

"I think the catchphrase is going to change, because Davina’s is so well known I think it will be good to change it. They said what catchphrase do you want, I was like ‘HEY!’. They said no.

"Maybe ‘This is Brian, you know what to do!’"

And the Irish telly host, who has previously won the show twice, added: "Actually, I’ve never understood why you can’t swear…maybe Davina didn’t like it.., I’m going to encourage it!"
