Gary Busey, former B*Witched singer Edele Lynch and ex-boxing promoter Kellie Maloney are among the stars who were unveiled as housemates on the new season of Britain's Celebrity Big Brother on Monday (18Aug14).

Busey joined fellow Americans Leslie Jordan and Stephanie Pratt on the show, which marks Maloney's first major public outing since she revealed she is living as a woman awaiting a sex change after years as top boxing promoter Frank Maloney, who managed the career of top fighter Lennox Lewis.

Singer Lynch is an early favourite to win the show after showing off her reality Tv skills by finishing first on 2013's Celebrity Apprentice Ireland.

The stars will be joined by actress/model Kelly Brook's fiance David MCIntosh and professional boxer Audley Harrison, among others.
