The Voice of Big Brother: Marcus Bentley’s Remarkable Career and Return to the Show

The Unchanging Voice of Big Brother

Since the inception of Big Brother in 2000, one constant has prevailed throughout the show’s history – the unmistakable voice of narrator Marcus Bentley.

Whether it was during the original reality TV program’s Channel 4 era, its continuation on Channel 5, or the new era on ITV2, the 56-year-old’s distinctive Geordie tones have consistently captivated Big Brother fans.

This summer, the news of his return for the show’s 20th series brought joy to the hearts of dedicated viewers.

Narrating Big Brother’s History

Marcus Bentley is not only renowned for narrating the main Big Brother series but has also lent his voice to all 22 seasons of Celebrity Big Brother, which began in 2001 and last aired in 2018.

As speculation mounts about ITV’s potential revival of Celebrity Big Brother, it is widely anticipated that Marcus will resume his role for this show as well.

The Discreet Star

Due to the nature of his role, Marcus is rarely recognized in public, and he typically prefers to stay out of the spotlight. Join us as we delve into his career and life.

Marcus Bentley’s Acting Career

Marcus Bentley’s journey began in his native County Durham before he ventured to Essex in his late teens to study at East 15 Acting School.

His acting prowess led to roles in television adaptations of novels by North East native Catherine Cookson. Additionally, Marcus appeared in the 1980s and 1990s fire brigade drama “London’s Burning” and featured in various TV advertisements.

Notably, he also had minor roles in films, including the 1995 thriller “Mad Dogs and Englishmen,” in which he shared the screen with Liz Hurley.

In more recent times, Marcus hosted Sky One’s quiz show “Dirty Money” before moving on to present the broadcaster’s children’s program, “Mittens and Pants.”

Marcus Bentley’s Family Life

In 1997, Marcus married Jules, and the couple went on to have three children.

Last August, they celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary, marking the occasion with a heartwarming post on social media.

Marcus praised their wonderful time together, enjoying theater, fine dining, and abundant love. Jules Bentley is an award-winning illustrator for children’s books and has authored one herself, titled “The Hippopandamouse.”

A graduate of Cambridge School of Art, Jules regularly shares her artwork on her Instagram account, delighting her 13,000 followers.

The Return of Marcus Bentley

When Big Brother announced its comeback last year, there were concerns among fans that Marcus Bentley might not be part of the reboot.

This apprehension grew, especially after former hosts Rylan Clark and Emma Willis were ruled out of returning.

Following the confirmation of AJ Odudu and Will Best as the new hosts, Marcus took to social media to wish them well while his own future remained uncertain.

However, rumors of his return began to circulate after he praised the new house’s look as “so cool.”

In April of this year, it was officially confirmed that Marcus would be returning to narrate the show’s latest era.

An insider shared, “It was a no-brainer to have Marcus back for the new era – he is simply the voice associated with Big Brother UK.”

An excited Marcus expressed his anticipation for the upcoming shenanigans as he confirmed his return to the show.
