DAVINA McCall’s feud with Brian Dowling has been reignited after he blasted the telly for not apologising to him for a Big Brother spat that started almost two years ago.
Brian first lashed out at the telly star in 2020 when host Davina claimed he was invited to take part in the show’s one-off Best Ever Series show when fans questioned why he wasn't able to take part.
However Brian, who was replaced as Big Brother presenter by Emma Willis in 2013 after two years, said he didn’t feel it was Davina’s place to comment and the pair became embroiled in a very public row.
Brian has now confirmed their quarrel has yet to end, saying: “I’ve not got an apology for stuff that was said.
“I know what happened to me during my time on that show – Davina McCall doesn’t because she wasn’t on the show.
“She resigned and left the show on Channel 4, and she passed me her microphone.”
Speaking about why he was so upset at her comments to a fan about being a part of the hour-long special alongside Davina, Emma and Rylan, Brian added: “I was uncomfortable with Davina’s truth because they weren’t Davina’s truths to tell.
“They were my truths to tell, and how I felt regarding my firing from Channel 5.

“Davina worked on a show on Channel 4. Davina and I had a good relationship up until the summer of last year, but things were said publicly that weren’t true and weren’t fair.”
Speaking last year Brian, who won Big Brother in 2001, said his row with Davina on social media felt “bizarre”.
He said: “I was a bit out of the loop because I was quite surprised they were doing a Best Bits of Big Brother.
“Davina, Emma and Rylan had a conversation and they talked about Emma being the presenter after Davina.
“I was like, 'Well no because I was obviously the presenter after Davina'.
“There were only three hosts of Big Brother – Davina, me and Emma – and I just kind of felt that I was overlooked.
“I just went to address it. But I was not expecting it to go the way that it did with Davina and everything she was saying.
“I just wanted someone to acknowledge the fact I hosted it when it moved from Channel 4 to Channel 5. No one did.”
