WE'RE beginning to think Brian Dowling has put a curse on the couples of Britain.
Disaster hit the relentlessly bubbly TV presenter last week when he was due to film a pair of lovers for his new ITV1 makeover show, Brian's Boyfriends.
The night before he set off to surprise the boyfriend, the girlfriend rang producers to say she had just found out he was having an affair.
They had to cancel the show which, needless to say, left the series with a massive hole. Producers and Brian spent the next day frantically trying to find another couple.
Brian told us, "It was terrible. I felt so sorry for the girl, what a time to find out."
