Davina McCall has offered to return to 'Big Brother' to host spin-off show 'Big Brother's Bit on the Side' if Rylan Clark-Neal or Emma Willis aren't available
Davina McCall wants to return to 'Big Brother' to host 'Bit on the Side'.
The 49-year-old star presented the reality TV show when it aired on Channel 4 between 2000 and 2010 and she has admitted she would be willing to return to take control of the spin-off series should regular host Rylan Clark-Neal enter the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house during the current series and main show presenter Emma Willis isn't able to step in.
Speaking on 'This Morning' on Wednesday (04.01.16) during Rylan's showbiz news segment, she said: "I want to come back and do 'Big Brother's Bit on the Side' again."
Addressing rumours that he is going back into the house, 28-year-old Rylan - who won series 11 three years ago - said: "If it happens you can do 'BOTS'."
Quizzed on whether it is true that he is to enter the famous abode for the current series, dubbed 'All Stars and New Stars', he said: "No of course I am not, that's not what I am saying. There have been so many rumours going about that I am going back in because Heidi [Montag] and Spencer [Pratt] are in. I obviously host 'BOTS' and I love it, that's my job."
'This Morning' presenter Phillip Schofield then said: "Can I also point out and this is directly to the producers of 'Big Brother', something that you [Davina] said, you go in ..."
Rylan added: "And Emma [Willis] can't do 'BOTS' or she comes in with me."
Philip interrupted: "She goes in ..."
Davina said: "Then I'm doing 'BOTS'."
An excited Rylan exclaimed: "There you are verbal contract we all heard it. It could happen you never, never know."
It comes after rumours circulated that bosses had agreed to let Rylan move back into the iconic house temporarily this week for the special in a bid to "settle scores" with reality TV couple Heidi and Spencer whom he repeatedly clashed with in the house in 2013.
Since going back into the house, Spencer and Heidi have dissed Rylan and spoke about how much they hate him.
