Brian Dowling named presenter of Big Brother

Big Brother 2 winner, Brian Dowling, has been named the new presenter of Channel 5’s Big Brother.

Brian beat 13 other ex-housemates to be crowned the Ultimate housemate.

Davina McCall, who presented the show for 11 years on Channel 4, had already ruled out a return to the show.

Emma Willis will present the spin-off show Big Brothers Little Brother.

The celebrity edition of Big Brother kicks off this August.
