She has formerly hosted the spin-off show ‘Big Brother’s Bit On The Side’, but now Emma is set to take top spot as she replaces Brian Dowling as the main host of Big Brother.

The former model and MTV presenter has 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!”

Apparently former host Davina McCall (when the show was on Channel 4) has given her blessing.

Ben Frow, the Channel 5 director of programmes had some pretty good things to say about the new host: “Emma is a natural on screen, she’s made the spin-off show her own and now the time is totally right for her to step up”

“I know she’ll take Big Brother to the next level and I can’t wait to see her dealing with the housemates both famous and soon- to-be famous.”

Former Big Brother contestant (and twice winner) Brian took over from Davina two years ago when the cult show moved from Channel 4 to Channel 5, however many had thought that he wasn’t a very good presenter.

Still, with years of presenting under her belt, Emma is bound to do a good job when she begins her new role this summer. Good luck Emma!
