Ian Roe

Big Brother/Celebrity Big Brother's Bit On The Side

With his eclectic and ever-changing image, Ian Roe may look like an amalgamation of Johnny Depp, Russell Brand and the majority of the Twilight cast (when he’s sporting the beardless look), but Rylan’s affectionately named ‘Dirty Pirate’ is an image chameleon with an ever-distinctive dry humour, cool manner and serious presenting skill.

Recognised as the Digital Host for Big Brother & Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side, Ian is responsible for giving the public their digital fix alongside presenters Emma Willis and Rylan. As host for the last two series, Ian possesses the ability to take endless online data and deliver it as entertaining, relevant content to the viewer. If something interesting is going on in the world of social media, he has become the man to find it.

Both enigmatic and imaginative, Ian is a character like no other, and his unique and unfazed presenting style always brings a different spin to a show. Whether tackling the unashamedly opinionated Katie Hopkins or grilling The Saturdays, he is ready to add his personal dose of eccentricity to any film junket, celebrity or music interview. In addition, he has worked behind the the camera for production companies including ITV, Endemol and Talkback Thames, so knows exactly what to give to make a production work.

Ian also has an eclectic range of skills to mirror his eclectic style. Combining a love for rapping, the guitar, the trumpet, circus acrobatics, breakdancing and body popping, you can rely on Ian to be anything but ordinary!

In his spare time you can find Ian filming for his aptly named Youtube channel ‘The Ian Roe’ show, which goes some way to demonstrating the wonderful and wacky things that go on in his head.
