Following rumours of her departure from “Pinoy Big Brother”, Toni Gonzaga recently confirmed that she will no longer be hosting the said show.
The actress shared the news on Instagram on 9 February, with a post that read, “From witnessing all my co-hosts transition from housemates to ‘PBB’ hosts are just some of the best moments in my life sa Bahay ni Kuya. Today, I’m stepping down as your main host. I know Bianca and the rest of the hosts will continue the ‘PBB’ legacy.”
“It has been my privilege to greet you all with ‘Hello Philippines’ and ‘Hello World’ for the last 16 years. I will forever cherish the memories, big nights and moments in my heart. Thank you Kuya for everything. This is your angel, now signing off…”
In addition to her announcement, Toni also shared a photo of herself from one of her “PBB” episodes wearing red.
The departure came amid the controversy surrounding the actress’ appearance at the proclamation rally of presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos, son of dictator Ferdinand Marcos. She also introduced Rodante Marcoleta at the rally, the same lawmaker who supported the move to reject ABS-CBN’s franchise renewal that caused thousands to lose their jobs.
