Last year’s Big Brother host of the new look series Brian Dowling, has been replaced by last year’s Big Brother Bit On The Side host Emma Willis according to reports.
It has been claimed that Willis was appointed by producers in a bid to halt the decline in viewer numbers and to recapture the magic that former presenter Davina McCall brought to the show.
A source told the Daily Star, “Emma has all the qualities of Davina McCall…
“She’s fun, gorgeous, girls love her and guys would love to date her.”
Of appointing Emma to present the show, Channel 5 boss Ben Frow said yesterday, “Emma is a natural on screen.
“She’s made the spin-off show her own and now the time is totally right for her to step up.
“I can’t wait to see her dealing with the housemates, both famous and soon to be famous.”
And with regard to Brian, he added, “I’d also like to thank Brian for doing such a sterling job.”
The new series of Big Brother kicks off later this year.
