Will Best, the charismatic and charming host of the popular reality TV show Big Brother, has a life away from the cameras that is just as intriguing as his on-screen persona. While he may be known for his quick wit and smooth hosting skills on the show, there is much more to him than meets the eye.

One aspect of Will’s life that is not often talked about is his longtime relationship with his girlfriend. The couple has been together for several years and their bond is evident in the way they support each other both professionally and personally. Despite his demanding schedule, Will always makes time for his partner and values the stability and support she brings to his life.

In addition to his relationship, Will also has a close friendship with fellow television presenter Maya Jama. The two have been friends for years and share a special bond that extends beyond the glitz and glamour of the entertainment industry. Maya has even appeared as a guest on Big Brother, showcasing their natural chemistry and camaraderie.

Away from the cameras, Will enjoys spending time with his friends and family, and is known for his love of outdoor activities such as hiking and surfing. He is a true adventurer at heart and always seeks out new and exciting experiences to add to his repertoire.

Despite his busy schedule as the host of Big Brother, Will always makes time for the important relationships in his life and values the love and support he receives from his girlfriend, friends, and family. His life away from the cameras is a testament to his genuine and down-to-earth nature, making him a beloved figure both on and off the screen.

Will Best is back on our screens in a brand new series of Celebrity Big Brother on Monday night, when he and AJ Odudu will introduce viewers to a new batch of famous faces heading into the Big Brother house. 

While Will has become a familiar face across the nation thanks to his role on the reality show, how much do you know about his life away from the cameras?

Viewers may also recognise him as the host of ITV’s Dance Dance Dance, which he fronted alongside Alesha Dixon in 2017.

In April last year, it was announced that Will and AJ Odudu would be the new hosts of ITV’s revival of Big Brother.

At the time, Will said: “I grew up with Big Brother so getting a chance to host it with my mate AJ is a dream come true. I can’t wait to tell some housemates not to swear.”

With enough hard work and determination you could catch me one day!”
