Big Brother’s Emma Willis: ‘I’d love to do Strictly… but I can’t dance!’

She may be the host of Big Brother, but Emma Willis has revealed that if she had to choose a TV series to star in herself, it’d be Strictly Come Dancing.

She said: “The problem is I can’t dance, but the thought of forcing myself to learn how to dance and going through the process would be a great experience.”

Big Brother bosses have promised an “unpredictable” and “ominous” new series when the show returns.

Housemates have been warned to prepare for “paranoia and suspicion” as they discover a dark force at work which “will have a dramatic and divisive effect”.

A black and white “yin and yang” theme has been revealed for the 17th series, and the show’s famous eye icon is turned monochrome with colourful shards shattering off.

An extension has reportedly been built on the set at Elstree Studios in Borehamwood, suggesting that perhaps a bumper set of contestants could enter this year.

Bit On The Side presenter Rylan Clark-Neal has promised the new series has “a shake-up that they (housemates) won’t see coming. It’s almost a brand new game.”

Rylan, who rose to fame on The X Factor back in 2012 and finished in fifth place, also hinted that he is keen to put his singing skills to use again.

He said: “I couldn’t do another reality show, because I’ve done it. But, for the pure love of it, I would do Eurovision.

“I don’t think I’d do any better than anyone else who’s done it, but I’d bring a bit of Rylan sparkle to the proceedings and I’d have a bloody good laugh doing it.”

Big Brother returns to Channel 5 on June 7.
