Arthur Gourounlian has said his husband Brian Dowling is “absolutely furious” that he’s been getting more attention than he has since joining Dancing With The Stars as a judge.
rian, who won the second season of Big Brother in 2001, has had to share the limelight with his dancer husband since he replaced Julian Benson on the RTÉ show in January.
Arthur said that for the first time since they’ve been together, he’s more recognized on the street than Brian.
The 41-year-old said: “He’s raging! He’s absolutely furious. We went to the Newbridge parade for St Patrick’s Day and I didn’t know how many kids saw the show.
“So I got styled there with my big hair and all the kids came and took pictures [saying], ‘Arthur, Arthur!’ and I was like, ‘Okay, I’ll take another picture.’
“And then the moms and dads were like, ‘Brian, we still love you. We voted for you 20 years ago.”
“I say, ‘Your time is up! It’s all about me now!’”

But Arthur said there’s no real jealousy there, insisting his former reality star husband is extremely supportive of his career.
He explained: “He’s the most supportive husband. He says, ‘Go shine alone.’
“I moved to Ireland for him. If I wasn’t married to Brian I’d be in LA or somewhere else but I love him, I moved here so he could start a family so he’s glad that’s happening. He’s so happy for me.”
The Armenian said the next step for the couple is to start a family, adding that having a child is his biggest dream.
He said: “I’ve said before that we work for the family. Everything in my life, there is nothing I want to do more. I’ve done everything and now I want a family.
“I want to build an empire of Dowling-Gourounlian. This is what I want. I would give up everything tomorrow to have a baby.”
