Big Brother 2012 has been nastiest series ever, claims Brian Dowling

Brian Dowling (Big Brother 2012)

Big Brother 2012 host Brian Dowling has claimed that this year's series has been the nastiest ever.

With the housemates kicking off the bitching from Week One, we can't disagree with the Irish presenter's opinion on this year's bunch of wannabes.

Speaking to the Daily Star ahead of tonight's final, Brian admitted that he probably wouldn't have been able to cope in the house this series.

The Big Brother 2 winner said: “I do believe this has been the bitchiest, nastiest and most backstabbing house we’ve ever had.

“They absolutely hate one another.

“I seriously think if I had been a housemate this year I would have walked. I couldn’t have lasted.”

This series has been one of the most complained about ever, with telly watchdog Ofcom having launched three different investigations so far after receiving thousands of complaints.

And Brian confessed he's been shocked by how little remorse has been shown by some of the hopefuls, even when they've been evicted to huge boos.

“When they have come out of the house and I’ve interviewed them and shown them the footage, there is no remorse," he told the newspaper. “I have pushed and pushed them.

“But they just go: ‘Hey, that’s me. I’m young and I’m a bitch.’

“But fair play to the producers. This lot did deliver the drama.”

The Big Brother final airs tonight on Channel 5.
