The new series of Big Brother starts up again on June 5th and frankly, we're a little giddy. The show's new broadcaster, Channel 5, want everyone to get behind their representation of the show, which they plan to completely revamp for the next series. We wonder where they'll start?
Well, it seems as though the head honcho's first order of business is to de-tan presenter Brian Dowling. The BB host admitted in a recent interview that producers want the former reality star to shed a that caked on brown sludge and appear more natural. Brian says,
"They are changing the look this year and it was suggested I could wear jeans. I said I would love to wear jeans...They then said, 'You looked really brown'. So I have been told to be less Essex, more Chelsea. How that is relevant to the show I don't know but, yeah, I have to look less brown."
Maybe the channel are going for a classier edition of the hit show? Still, we're sure the next round-up of housemates will try to change that, we just hope there isn't a repeat of Kinga-gate (it still haunts us in our sleep).
Brian also spoke out in the interview about a terrifying experience where he was mugged back in March. The presenter revealed,
"Even now I don't go out when it is dark on my own. When it happened I left the lights on and I was crying for my mum."
We guess there really is a thing as 'too tanned for TV', we can hear the cast of TOWIE shrieking from here.
So come on Heatworld citizens, which of you will be tuning in to the next series?
