Earlier today (22.07.11) it was revealed Brian Dowling was the new host of 'Big Brother'.
The Irish star - who shot to fame after winning the show in 2001 and 'Ultimate Big Brother' last year - will take over from Davina McCall.
He said: "I will tell them, 'BB house. This is Brian. Please swear'. I'm not Davina. I'll be me.
"I am so excited. When they told me I was like, 'Oh my God! Are you sure?'
"I'm just so chuffed. It was about two months of talks and going back and forth, they told me about two weeks ago and I had to keep it a secret. But that was a good chance for me to let it sink in."
