Welcome to Absolutely
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'.
Brian is one of the celebrities taking part in the big new ITV1 show 'Celebrities Under Pressure' hosted by Melanie Sykes.
The format of the show seems to be how a celebritiy will fair going to live with ordinary families for a week. The celebrity is given a task to master, and makes a video diary of what happens. They then return to the studio to perform a challenge. Each celebrity will have just one chance to get their challenge right in order to win a prize for their adopted family. One wrong move, one memory lapse, one slip and it could result in the families going home with absolutely nothing.
Brian filmed his episode in Manchester on Friday, having stayed with a family for 3 days two weeks ago.
The show goes out on September 13th, at 6pm.

For anyone who missed it, ‘Flugtag’, shown on ITV1 today, was 30 minutes of laughs. The show highlighted the 40 finalists who had attempted to invent a flying machine. Most failed miserably, but you had to admire their efforts. The fun was definitely in the taking part!!
Brian and Tess did a brilliant job presenting the show in front of an audience of about 150,000 people in Hyde Park, London. It was a real team effort and they held the whole thing together brilliantly. It couldn’t have been easy fronting such a huge event to an outside audience on a scorching hot day so well done to both Brian and Tess.
It was reported in today's Daily Mirror that Tess says she has asked Brian to be an Usher at her forthcoming wedding to Vernon, which take place next month in Bolton. An excited Brian said "It's going to be amazing."
Tess and Vernon have not gone down the route of selling out their wedding to a magazine, and will pose up after the wedding for any photographers who are there.
Look out for more details of the forthcoming nuptials ......
