Rylan Clark excited to work with Carol McGiffin
Rylan Clark thinks Carol McGiffin will be a great addition to the 'Celebrity Big Brother' family
Rylan Clark is looking forward to Carol McGiffin joining the 'Celebrity Big Brother' team.
The TV personality will miss his presenting sidekick AJ Odudu on the Channel 5 spin-off show 'Big Brother's Bit on the Side', but thinks former 'Loose Women' star Carol will be a brilliant addition to psychology-themed sister show, 'Bit on the Psych'.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: "It's going to be really sad without AJ. I love her and we're such good friends on and off screen.
"But I've been given this opportunity and I have to do it on my own and I'm hoping I'll do as good a job as I did last time.
"I'm looking forward to seeing what Carol brings. She won't hold back and that's why we love her."
The former 'X Factor' star - who will also be presenting 'Celebrity Big Brother's Bit on the Side' alongside Emma Willis - remained tight-lipped about what contestants can expect from the house this year, but admitted they were set to "suffer" more than ever.
Rylan added: "All I'll say is there's going to be a very big twist. There will be a few false friendships. The house is very royal and luxurious but don't be fooled by the appearance - it doesn't mean it will be easy.
"If anything, that's a red herring. That's good because I want to see them suffer - I had to do it, so they can too.
"I have come up with ideas on tasks for the new series and I think they are going to use one of them."
N-Dubz rapper Dappy, comedian Jim Davidson and 'The Only Way Is Essex' star Sam Faiers are some of the names rumoured to be entering the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house in January.
