Celebrity Big Brother 12 summer 2013 launch show - Carol McGiffin

Channel 5 has confirmed that Iain Lee and Carol McGiffin have joined the presenting team of Big Brother’s Bit On The Psych for Celebrity Big Brother 2014.

Having appeared on it regularly during this summer’s series, Iain will now officially become the co-host of the spin-off show, which will continue to air on Saturday nights.

Meanwhile, former Loose Women star McGiffin – who finished fourth in the most recent series of CBB – will become its ‘head panellist’, appearing each week alongside expert guests.

This news all but confirms rumours that former BOTP frontwoman AJ Odudu has left.

McGiffin said: “When I was in the house I was a straight talker, and it will be the same on Bit On The Psych. I’m really looking forward to getting inside the housemates heads and seeing what mates them tick.”

Iain – who was previously one of the voices of online radio spin-off ‘Big Brother’s Big Ears’ during the ninth series in 2008 – has regularly attracted criticism for his comments on Bit On The Psych, for which he wrote an apology to ex-housemate Callum Knell on his blog.

He will share his hosting duties with Rylan Clark, who is returning to sister show Bit On The Side with Emma Willis. It is currently unclear whether the Sunday edition of BOTS will remain in its lunchtime timeslot.

    “Head panelist” on an ailing reality shows spin-off – even for a Loose Woman that’s scraping the barrel. One step up from the cleaner on Sex Box though I suppose.
