With Big Brother 9 UK fast approaching the first bit of big news has finally been released…the new presenters of Big Brother’s Little Brother have been announced as George Lamb and Zezi Ifore, who you may know from various other C4/E4 shows. Read the full press release below.
Presenters George Lamb and Zezi Ifore have been announced as the new hosts of Big Brother’s Little Brother. It’s now a case of “little brother and little sister” with the duo set to take the reigns of the ultimate BB fan show this summer.
As well as being super-fans of the show, George and Zezi are already part of the C4/E4 family, both presenting on E4 Music and daily morning music and entertainment show Freshly Squeezed. On joining the Big Brother spin-off, the pair said:
George: “Imagine how excited someone would be if they were presenting Big Brother, well I’m just a little bit less excited than that but I’m still extremely excited.”
Zezi said: “This is preposterously good, I’ve always loved Big Brother – it’s omnipresent, you can’t help but get sucked in! And working alongside a lovely lamb too – George Lamb – ain’t half bad either. Bring it on!”
As a regular on Channel 4′s T4 and E4 Music, George has interviewed some of the biggest names in music and film including 50 Cent, Gwen Stefani, Ian Brown, Kiefer Sutherland and Lindsay Lohan. He’s also been seen presenting Celebrity Scissorhands for Children In Need on BBC3, plus The Restaurant: You’re Fried, also on BBC3. George currently has his own mid-morning radio show on BBC 6Music. Before hitting the small screen himself, George worked behind the scenes as manager to music acts including Lily Allen and Audio Bullys.
Zezi’s squeezed a lot into her 23 years. A strong background in music led her to E4 music and Freshly Squeezed where she interviews some of the biggest artists around, and champions new talent. With her fellow E4 presenter Nick Grimshaw she’s even formed a DJ duo Zapotecsoundsystem. Zezi was the editor of cult fashion magazine Super Super, works in A&R for a music publisher and has even turned her hand to styling, with clients including Dizzee Rascal.
Big Brother’s Little Brother returns to E4 Monday to Friday, and T4 on Sundays in the summer. Davina McCall presents the main Channel 4 launch show, plus live eviction shows.
