Emma Willis will continue to have a role on 'Big Brother's Bit on the Side'.

The TV presenter was recently confirmed as the new host of 'Big Brother' - replacing Brian Dowling, who was axed from the role after two years - but bosses are keen to keep her on the long-standing reality show's spin-off programme as well.

Meanwhile, insiders have confirmed that current co-hosts Jamie East and Alice Levine will not return for the new series of 'Bit on the Side' this summer and Emma will be joined by an all-new panel of presenters.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "As well as shaking up the main show, bosses are keen to freshen up 'Bit on the Side'. It is still early days - but Emma will still have a role on the show alongside other new presenters. The aim is to take the show a bit more upmarket than it is now.

"Sadly, Jamie and Alice won't be back."

The 37-year-old presenter has hosted 'Bit on the Side' for two years since 'Big Brother' moved from Channel 4 to Channel 5, and recently said she was ecstatic to take over the main show.

She said: "I am thrilled to have been offered this job. I'm a fan first and foremost, so to be able to front the show is going to be amazing. Roll on the summer!"
