Emma Willis bans kids from watching Big Brother

Emma Willis won't let her kids watch 'Big Brother' until they are 16.

The 41-year-old presenter - who has Isabelle, eight, Ace, six, and Trixie, 14 months, with husband Matt Willis - insists the language and "graphic" content on the show are too much, so they won't get to see her at work until they are much older.

Asked if they watch the show, she told heat magazine: "Oh my God, no. [They can't watch until they are] at least 16. There's such bad language in it and sometimes it can get a bit graphic."

The regular series came to an end last week, and the celebrity version kicked off at the beginning of the week and Emma can't wait to see how the famous housemates adapt to their new surroundings.

She said: "You're always guaranteed a lot of fun with the celebrity version because everyone is being paid to be there and it's not like they're all desperately grappling to win that pot of gold at the end of it.

"Celebrities are almost like light relief compared to what goes down in the summer series, which can get quite serious."

Emma would love to see Eamonn Holmes and his wife Ruth Langsford enter the famous abode, but knows that's unlikely to ever happen because they are fans of the show so understand the reality of living in confined circumstances.

She said: "They are so amazing. They're such lovely people and hilarious together.

"I love the fact Eamonn thinks he wears the trousers but we all know it's really Ruth.

"And, you know, he's happy with that. Eamonn is one of my favourite people ever. I absolutely adore them both... They watch [the show] every night. I think that's probably why Eamonn knows better than to go in there."
