Queer Eye's new host revealed after Bobby Berk departure amid reports of clash with Tan France

The iconic Fab Five will be getting a new member later this year

Queer Eye's new host has finally been revealed after Bobby Berk departed the show amid reports of an alleged clash with co-star Tan France.

The Netflix reboot Queer Eye first hit our screens back in 2018 and introduced the world to the Fab Five, comprised of food and drink specialist Antoni Porowski, grooming consultant Jonathan Van Ness, fashion designer Tan France, culture expert Karamo Brown and interior designer Bobby.

However, in November of last year, Bobby announced he was leaving the beloved series after eight seasons.

He previously told his fans at the time: "It’s with a heavy heart that I announce that season eight will be my final season on Queer Eye. It’s not been an easy decision to be at peace with, but a necessary one.

"Although my journey with Queer Eye is over, my journey with you is not. You will be seeing more of me very soon."

It has now finally been revealed that Bobby will be passing the torch over to interior designer and HGTV star, Jeremiah Brent, who will appear in the ninth season of the makeover show.

In an official press release put out yesterday (27 February), the streaming platform shared a more details about Jeremiah and all of his accolades.

There's going to be a brand-new Fab Five member.

Based in New York City, the newest Fab Five member is the founder of his own full-service interior design firm, Jeremiah Brent Design, which launched in 2012 with locations in New York City and Los Angeles.

Not only this, but he also fronts the lifestyle brand Atrio.

Tudum continues: "With a finely honed intuition and sophisticated sensibility, Brent has worked his magic on countless properties across the world. But no matter the home, Brent begins each project by developing an in-depth familiarity with his clients’ emotional lives and personal journeys before personally installing each and every space — making him a natural fit for the Queer Eye family."

Jeremiah Brent will be Bobby Berk's replacement.

There's previously been some speculation about an alleged clash between Bobby and his co-star, Tan, but the interior designer has previously come forward to put an end to the rumours of any feud - which started after Bobby unfollowed Tan on Instagram last year.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, Berk said he hoped he could 'extinguish some of the speculation' about his departure from the programme, adding: "I want people to know that Tan and I – we will be fine."

He continued: "Tan and I had a moment. There was a situation, and that’s between Tan and I, and it has nothing to do with the show. It was something personal that had been brewing – and nothing romantic, just to clarify that."

Queer Eye is currently available to stream on Netflix.
