Emma Willis is to leave her role as main presenter of Celebrity Big Brother spin-off Bit On The Side after almost three and a half years, bbspy can confirm.
Tonight’s edition of the magazine show will be the last to be fronted by the 38-year-old, and Rylan Clark will take over with immediate effect.
Rylan is slated to host the remaining four episodes of the current series, and bbspy understands that he will become the sole presenter of BOTS when it returns alongside Big Brother’s sixteenth civilian run this summer.
However, Emma will continue to host the main show – including launches, evictions and finales – and it is expected that she’ll still make weekly guest appearances on BOTS.
No reason has been given for the move, though it is believed to be due to Emma’s workload, with her profile having skyrocketed since she became the face of the main show.
Just five months after she replaced Brian Dowling, BBC One hired her for The Voice UK – and the last month the broadcaster announced that she will team up with Reggie Yates on new gameshow Prized Apart.
