Brian Dowling and Arthur Gorounlian reveal hopes for their own ‘Ant and Dec’ style TV show


Brian Dowling and Arthur Gorounlian wowed early this year, with the premiere of Brian and Arthur’s Very Modern Family. Their RTÉ documentary which followed their journey to fatherhood, as the couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Blake, via surrogacy. With Brian’s sister Aoife acting as surrogate for the pair.

And now it seems they could be returning to our screens, with both lads confessing they would be interesting in stepping back behind the camera, but for something a bit less serious, wanting a entertainment show in the style of Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

With Arthur telling The Sun: “Big. Bold. Camp entertainment. That’s what we want to give people each Saturday.”

“We have had so many people telling us on social media they’d love to see us team up together on the same TV show.”


And Brian is just as enthusiastic, saying: “Is Ireland ready for a gay Ant & Dec? Absolutely Ireland is ready.”

The men are certainly well equipped for the challenge, both being heavily involved in the entertainment industry. As Arthur is a judge of the hit competition series, Dancing With The Stars. While Brian got his start as Big Brother champion, since then he has dominated the industry.

Most recently he was announced as 98fm’s newest host, getting a daytime show  with Suzanne Kane.


98FM announced the news on social media, back in March, writing: “The news is finally out. We are SO excited for @bprdowling to join the 98FM family!

“Brian will be joining our beloved @suzanne.fm 10am-1pm weekdays on 98FM. Get ready for for the best daytime chats, paired of course with the biggest good time anthems.”

The comments were filled with Brian’s pals celebrating the good news.

“This is brilliant news! Well done @bprdowling and @suzanne.fm xx,” Una Healy enthused.
