Gay Big Brother winner Brian Dowling says he wants to have kids - using a surrogate mum.

Brian, 27, who won the second series of BB, says his experience looking after his young nieces has convinced him he would be a great father.

And the ex-air steward, set to present quiz show The Mint for digital channel ITV Play, plans to be a single parent when he has found a volunteer to carry his child.

"Biologically I'd like to have my own kid, probably on my own, not in a relationship," he said "So perhaps a friend or somebody that I trust would have the child for me. Or perhaps a surrogate mum. I think I'd be a good dad. I've got two nieces and six sisters so it's definitely in me to be a carer. It's something I definitely want to do at some point."
