Absolutely Brian // the official website of TV and Radio personality Brian Dowling :: Home

Welcome to Absolutely Brian,
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'.

» SKY - 'New Year! New You!'

Due to the success of Sky Active's 'Wrapped Up For Christmas' magazine show Sky have initiated a second series of the show - 'New Year! New You! Brian is once again at the helm presenting the daily magazine show, ably assisted by his co-host Jayne Sharp.

'Wrapped Up For Christmas' was originally scheduled to run for 8 weeks from October to December of 2005, but due to the popularity of the show it ran straight through to the new year, and the new series, with just one week break for a highlights show over the Christmas holiday.

The first series was a wealth of entertainment from both Brian and Jayne including many absorbing interviews with both celebrities and informative specialists. Brian had his own diet feature on the show where he lost a stone in weight in a month following MaxT's diet, we visibly saw the pounds dropping off week by week, - and doesn't he look fantastic! It also gave us the chance to see Brian's extensive and impeccable taste in clothes day by day. Check out our GALLERY

The new series 'New Year - New You!' is centered on helping viewers to achieve their new year's resolutions of 'Quitting Smoking', sorting out their 'Finance' with Roddy Kohn (their very own debt corrector!), and 'Losing Weight' with Max Tomlinson (their naturopath and health expert),

The show is also offering a family a Total Family Makeover worth over 5k and the lucky winner will have the cameras follow their family for a day, as Sky Active's team of experts help transform their lives for the better.

However the fun element of the show remains - how could it be anything else but with Brian around, and they will continue with a variety of celebrity interviews throughout the coming weeks.

Again as in the previous series there are four new shows each week Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday (Thursday is a repeat of Wednesday) and Friday (Saturday and Sunday is a repeat of Friday).

To watch Brian on the daily Active show Sky viewers can access Sky Active by pressing the interactive button on their Sky remote control and pressing 1 for Sky Active!

Brian has today sent this message to all his fans...

"How happy am I today! To be voted 2nd place in the Star Magazine Favourite TV Star category is just AMAZING! Thank you to all of the people who voted for me, it means so much.

I've been mad busy filming my Sky shows for the past few weeks and have also filmed two pilots for two brand new shows next year. Fingers crossed one of them gets commissioned soon!

Lots of love, Brian x"
