PICS: Brian Dowling celebrates his 40th birthday with celeb pals

The TV presenter jetted back to Dublin for his milestone birthday


Brian Dowling celebrated his 40th birthday with celebrity pals in Dublin today.

The TV presenter, who found fame after winning Big Brother back in 2001, jetted back to Dublin for his milestone birthday.

Brian, who is based in London, invited family and friends to toast to him turning the big 4-0 at celeb hotspot House on Leeson Street on Sunday afternoon – and you may recognise some of his party guests.

Of course, Brian’s BFF and partner in crime Pippa O’Connor was spotted, as well as her hubby Brian Ormond.

Fresh from opening her POCO pop-up shop in Limerick, the model mum returned to Dublin just on time for Brian’s birthday celebrations.

Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh also jetted in from the UK for the occasion, and shared plenty of snaps from the bash on her Instagram Story.

Brian and Kimberly have been friends for years, and the singer even attended his 2015 wedding to Arthur Gourounlain at the lavish Powerscourt Hotel in Co. Wicklow.

Nadia Forde was also pictured at the party, showing off her growing baby bump.

The brunette, who is expecting her first child with fiancé Dominic Day, also drove up from Limerick for the occasion as she was at Robbie Brady and Kerrie Harris’ wedding at Adare Manor yesterday. 

Posing for boomerang, Brian joked that Nadia was actually him and Arthur’s surrogate on Instagram.

Other stars seen at the party included TV3’s Alan Hughes and Cassie Stokes, as well as the ultimate drag diva Davina Devine.
