Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss is one of the new contestants to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house, but has the lowest odds of winning.

Ms Fleiss, 44, has odds of 33/1 to win the show, according to Ladbrokes, the lowest of all the 11 contestants

She shot to fame after being arrested in 1995 for supplying prostitutes to high profile celebrity clients and she served 21 months in prison.

She claims to have worked as a prostitute herself for famous clients such as Jack Nicholson and Marlon Brando.

After losing her fortune and selling the rights to her story to US TV channels and to Paramount Pictures, Ms Fleiss ran a launderette in Nevada.

She will appear in the Channel 4 show with footballer and actor Vinnie Jones, signer Dane Bowers and rapper Lady Sovereign.

Across the Atlantic, Sharon Osbourne has been announced as a participant in this year's US Celebrity Apprentice.

The series, based in New York and hosted by Donald Trump, will air in March.
