Emma Willis admits if she could she choose her dream 'Celebrity Big Brother' housemates she would want Charlie Sheen to be a contestant

Emma Willis thinks Charlie Sheen would be "dynamite" in the 'Big Brother' house.

The TV presenter - who is to front the reality TV show's spin-off series 'Big Brother's Bit On The Side' when it re-launches on Channel 5 later this summer - hopes the former 'Two and a Half Men' actor agrees to take part in the celebrity version of the programme.

She said: "I heard the rumours about Charlie Sheen and he would be dynamite. Realistically, I don't know if Charlie would go into the house, but he would be a corker."

With Brian Dowling - who won 'Big Brother' in 2002 and 'Ultimate Big Brother' last year - taking over presenting duties for the main show from Davina McCall, Emma hopes viewers aren't too "harsh" on him.

She added: "He's a competent presenter, he's a lovely guy - which shows 'cos he has won 'BB' twice - and he knows the show inside out. There's no one that knows the inside of that house better than Brian.

"For me, Davina was 'Big Brother', but I also loved the show as its own entity. I hope it works for Brian and I hope people aren't too hard on him. People can be so harsh on new shows and new hosts. It doesn't help the nerves."
