Marcus Bentley Would Follow BB To Another Channel

Marcus Bentley - The Voice Of Big Brother

Akin with BB Host Davina McCall, Marcus Bentley has said that he would definitely want to be involved if another TV channel bought the rights to air Big Brother.

The Geordie voiceover man has worked on every series of the show since it began in 2000, and has become synonymous with it as a result.

Indeed, if you were to ask a fan to do an impression of his narration, you would almost certainly hear them mimic his broad accent and say something like: "Dey toow in the Big Brewtha Howse'.

Talking to the BBC, Bentley said that he wouldn't be able to cope if someone else got the gig, adding: "The thought of somebody else doing it would break my heart. I'm such a fan of the show, I'd do it (come) hell or high water".

And despite the fact that some people reckon the show has had its day, Bentley disagrees; he noted that there are fresh people each year and therefore new stories to tell.

Although he'd like to be back in front of the microphone, the 42-year-old suggested that he might consider appearing in front of the camera as a Celebrity Big Brother housemate, should they bring it back in the future.

He declined to suggest a replacement narrator for that particular show though, if it ever took place.

Just to clarify, the current series of Big Brother – Big Brother 11/ 2010 – is the last-ever series in the UK.
