AT FIRST HE TRIED TO PUT on a brave face, but soon the tears were flowing as Brian Dowling hosted his last-ever SM:tv.
Brian got quite a few special treats, including a screening of a montage of his best bits and a gold disc from Mis-Teeq engraved with the words"Brian, you're so scandalous". At the end of the show, Brian told Tess he was going to "miss her soooo much".
Afterwards he was treated to lunch at The Ivy with his old workmates (and with leaving pressies like that,he must be thinking he should leave more often).
But Brian fans needn't get too upset-he's still presenting Brian's Boyfriends and he's working on some new ideas with Tess. It's hard to belive that two years ago, he was just an innocent boy from Ireland who got lucky with BigBrother.....
Excerpts from an interview with Tess in the same magazine:-
What's the last freebie you got and how come?
I got some lacoste knickers. I love them, they're dead comfy. Brian Dowling got given exactly the same ones, so we look like twins. I call him my Single White Female because we turn up to work wearing the same colours and even the same diamante bracelet.
Have you ever snogged a fan?
Brian Dowling in a photoshoot for Heat. No tongues though. that was his first kiss with a girl.
