Emma Willis is to cease hosting editions of Big Brother spin-off programme Bit On The Side.
The 38 year old presenter will front her final episode of the programme this evening at 11.00pm on Channel 5 with the programme set to contain special features to mark her farewell.
“Emma Willis will host her last episode of Bit On The Side tonight. We’d like to thank Emma for being a huge part of BOTS for the last four years. Emma continues as the main host of Big Brother.” – Channel 5
It is thought that Willis’s increased workload is behind her departure from the spin-off on which she shares hosting duties with Celebrity Big Brother 11 winner Rylan Clark.
Willis was the spin-off’s only anchor when it launched in 2011 to accompany Channel 5’s relaunch of Big Brother, but reduced her appearances after superseding Brian Dowling as the host of Big Brother in May 2013.
Willis will continue presenting Big Brother, with Rylan overseeing Bit On The Side full time in her absence,.
