Welcome to Absolutely
the official website of TV presenter Brian Dowling!
Since winning Big Brother Series 2 in 2001 Brian has never looked back - going on to become an established TV/Radio presenter, voice over artist, corporate host and Panto star. Still universally loved, Brian was voted 'The Nation's Favourite Big Brother Housemate Ever 'by the public in 2005 2007.' In 2010 Brian received the supreme accolade of being voted the fans No1 housemate in C4's last series "Ultimate Big Brother".
Brian would like to thank everyone for their unconditional support over the years, saying he has 'the most amazing and loyal fans in the world'.
During his appearance on 'This Morning' Brian informed everyone that (hopefully) The Mint Vault will be won this evening.
Brian said that they will give an extra clue before the 5 rings game as to whether the final digit is 'odd' or 'even'. If that fails to produce a winner they will then add another digit to the two already given, therefore given callers a 5/1 chance of winning 'The Mint Vault' that stands in excess of £108k
The show this evening promises to be a grand affair with the presenters in suitable evening attire.
Brian is also doing his usual show tomorrow night Friday 12th May.
