Brian Patrick Robert Dowling was the winner of Big Brother 2 (UK) and Ultimate Big Brother. He is notable for being one of only three people to win Big Brother twice, across any version of the show.
Brian Patrick Robert Dowling, born on 13 June 1978, was a flight attendant for Ryanair before entering the house. He originates from Rathangan, County Kildare, Ireland. He "came out" as being gay to his parents only two weeks before the competition. Brian says he doesn't like vegetables, salad or anything healthy but does make "a wicked shepherd's pie". His nickname is Bambie and is happy to describe himself as a "trolley dolly".
