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'.
We are pleased to reveal that Brian will be giving us an exclusive interview very shortly, based on questions submitted by fans via our forum. This will be the first interview for his Official Website and with questions coming from fans themselves it should be interesting to say the least! Keep checking back with us to read the interview.
There are now a variety of video clips from 'The Mint' available for you to either - view in our GALLERY or download from our MULTIMEDIA section. The majority of the clips at the moment, due to popular demand, are of Brian and Bev dancing. However in the near future we hope to be adding more clips from various programmes that Brian has presented or appeared in over the years.
Brian has been invited once again to make a personal appearance at Belfast's premiere gay nightclub The Kremlin on Thursday 3rd August. The Kremlin is presenting 'Mr. Gay Ireland' and Brian has been asked to host the event.
Brian in the past has presented the Mr Gay UK contest. However, this time Ireland has it's very own Mr. Gay contest, and kicks off with the Belfast heat, and says the club 'This is your chance to represent the Kremlin at the Dublin finals!'
Accompanying Brian to this event is friend and co-presenter on 'The Mint', Kat Shoob. Kat recently accompanied Brian to Guernsey when he presented their 'Summer Wave 2006' concert.
