The X Factor hottie has already won over the hearts of the nation (should we call it Swoon Factor?) and now he's got a celeb bromance going on.
He told us: "I'm having a major Gary bromance. He is H.O.T."
And the twice BB winner admitted he's actually in love with most of the new talent show panel.
He added: "Tulisa is amazing. Kelly is totally amazing too. I mean her best friend's Beyonce. She's been there, she's done it, she's worked hard, she gets it."
And the gushing continued when it came to the contestants, including Jade, who didn't make it through Judges' Houses against all odds.
He said: "I cannot believe Jade didn't make it through. She actually looked like Adele. And Marcus Collins is great. I'd be open to a dinner with him - and he can also do my hair and serenade me."
Brian Dowling appears in Impossible, the world's first magic game show which broadcasts on Channel5 tomorrow at 11pm
