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'.
Brian's friend Javine, is battling to represent the UK in the forthcoming Eurovision Song Contest 2005. 'Making Your Mind Up' goes out on BBC1 on Saturday March 5th. Javine will be singing her song "Touch My Fire" on the show, and the public will choose who goes forward to represent the UK. Therefore Javine needs your votes!
She is up against Andy Scott Lee, Gina G, Katie Price aka Jordan, and Tricolore in the final to represent the UK.
Brian has been a close friend of Javine's ever since she came to our notice on the music scene, and has supported her throughout her career. We at Absolutely Brian are more than happy to throw our weight behind Javine, who we think deserves the chance to represent us this year.
