Rylan Clark-Neal wants to host new political show

Share article:

ylan Clark-Neal is hoping to host a new politics show.

The 30-year-old TV presenter - who won Celebrity Big Brother's 11th series in 2013 and hosted "Big Brother's Bit on the Side" from 2013 to 2018 - is keen to front a programme which will explain what is currently going on in the news in simpler terms.

Rylan is quoted by the Daily Mirror newspaper as saying: "People have been saying, "You should do a politics show that is normal."

"Not everyone is sitting around in suits discussing the Northern Ireland backstop, but a politics show a bit like "Bit on the Side", where you explain what the backstop is.

"It's the way you communicate it - I think there is an outlet for it."

Rylan is captivated by the latest news and is currently hooked on getting Brexit updates from BBC Parliament.

He said: "It's my new favourite reality show.

"Genuinely, BBC Parliament is my favourite. Now Brexit has changed to Halloween, which is laughable. I love it, it's brilliant."

And when asked if he would like to run for prime minister himself, the former "X Factor" contestant would "have a crack at it".

He said: "Maybe I should leave it to the big boys, but who knows what might happen in the future?"

Rylan previously admitted a career highlight for him was when he won the celebrity version of the Channel 5 reality show because it gave him a chance to show everyone his true personality after appearing on "The X Factor" in 2012.

He said: "My proudest career moment was when I won "Celebrity Big Brother" because after what I'd been through on "The X Factor", "CBB" gave me the chance to show everyone who I really was."
