Rylan Clark has been confirmed to co-host 'Big Brother's Bit on the Side'.
The 'Celebrity Big Brother' winner - who shot to fame on 'The X Factor' last year - will be joined by fellow newcomer AJ Odudu on the presenting team for the 'Big Brother' spin-off, and the pair will share presenting duties with Emma Willis, who will host the main show for the first time this year.
Rylan, who will front a Sunday lunchtime edition of 'Bit on the Side', said: "I have followed the show since the very beginning. It was a dream come true to enter the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house this year, let alone win it! Being offered the job to present 'Big Brother's Bit On The Side' was amazing."
AJ - who was a panellist on E4 panel show 'The Dirty Digest' and has also covered showbiz news for MTV - added: "It's going to be brilliant fun hooking up with Rylan and Emma for 'Big Brother's Bit On The Side'. I can't wait to find out who the housemates are and get stuck in."
Channel 5 will also introduce a new psychological 'Big Brother' spin-off, 'Big Brother's Bit On The Psych', which will see a panel of experts and psychologists analyse the behaviour of the housemates over the past seven days.
Ben Frow, Director of Programmes on Channel 5, said: "Big Brother's spin off shows have a history of bringing on new talent and with Rylan and AJ I think we have two future stars."
