With Big Brother on an indefinite hiatus, spin-off Bit on the Side host Rylan Clark-Neal has pitched to the BBC a spin-off idea for his new “favourite reality show”: BBC Parliament.
Since joining Radio 2 as a presenter, he has suggested he host a chat show just like his former format, focusing on the bitching inside the UK’s most talked about house – the Commons.
“People have been saying: ‘You should do a politics show that is normal’,” the 30-year-old star says.
“Not everyone 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.”
And Rylan admits to being hooked on daily updates about Brexit and what the Government is doing.
“It’s my new favourite reality show,” declares Rylan.
“Genuinely, BBC Parliament is my favourite. Now Brexit has changed to Halloween , which is laughable. I love it, it’s brilliant.”
Asked if he’d like to be PM, Rylan, an ambassador for Virgin Media who sponsor the upcoming BAFTAs, says: “I’d have a crack at it.
“Maybe I should leave it to the big boys, but who knows what might happen in the future?”
