I'm Famous and Frightened | Absolutely Brian // the official website of TV and Radio personality Brian Dowling

Brian presented three series of I'm Famous & Frightened Extra and gave the shows a welcome boost with his own brand of fun.

The live shows were a mix of interviews, games and analysis of the previous night's events and challenges. Brian battled with unco-operative technical equipment (and guests too, at times!) but unsurprisingly sailed through it, forming bonds along the way with such diverse people as Rustie Lee, Adele Silva, Toyah Wilcox, Christopher Biggins Daniella Westbrook and Handy Andy Crane.

The venues for the spooky extravaganzas were some of the most haunted places in Britain, Fyvey Castle near Aberdeen (although Brian strangely thought he was in Edinburgh - geography obviously not his strong point!) Dover Castle in Kent and Bolsover Castle in Derbyshire.

Brian went down a storm with the celebrities, the psychologists and parapsychologists, the owners and curators of the houses & castles, and it seemed the public agreed too as most of the texts displayed on screen during the shows mentioned him in glowing terms! He proved himself a seasoned professional at presenting live TV, whilst keeping up a light-hearted and fun atmosphere in what could have been a dire concept.

When asked about the best part of their experience of I'm Famous & Frightened, a few of the celebs commented that they had enjoyed Brian's shows the most, although as the rest of the weekends involved them being scared witless that may or may not be down to his wonderful company.We never did find out if Brian himself had any paranormal experiences, but it's probably safe to say he didn't, as we would surely have heard the screams!
