Charlie Sheen is being lined up to appear on 'Celebrity Big Brother' when it launches on Channel 5 later this month.
With the former 'Two and a Half Men' actor - who was fired from the £1.2 million-per-episode role after revelations emerged about his romps with porn stars and drug binges - reportedly agreeing to a £6 million deal to feature on the reality series, it is hoped his involvement will make for "unmissable TV".
An insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "It would be unbelievable. A producer's dream. No-one would want to miss the chance of seeing what he's up to and hear the wacky things he's been saying.
"And let's face it, he's been saying some crazy stuff recently."
Charlie is expected to jet in to the UK some time over the next two weeks after agreeing the terms of his contract with Channel 5 bosses last week.
Among the names allegedly set to join the troubled actor include 'The Only Way Is Essex' beauty Amy Childs, boxing champion Ricky Hatton and even the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson.
A Channel 5 spokesperson added: "'Big Brother' execs are in talks with a number of celebrities about appearing on the series but we're not confirming any names at the moment."
