Updated on Friday 24 June 2011 by @TVNewsroom

Big Brother 2 winner, Brian Dowling, has been named the new presenter of Channel 5’s Big Brother.

Brian won Big Brother in 2001 and returned to show last year to take part in Ultimate Big Brother — the final edition on Channel 4.

Brian beat 13 other ex-housemates to be crowned the Ultimate housemate.

Davina McCall, who presented the show for 11 years on Channel 4, had already ruled out a return to the show.

Emma Willis will present the spin-off show Big Brothers Little Brother.

The celebrity edition of Big Brother kicks off this August.
