Ex-White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci joins American edition of Celebrity Big Brother

Just when you thought America couldn't get any weirder.

We should be surprised that a former White House official is going to appear on a reality TV show, but when the actual President of America has appeared on something similar, it all starts to feel a little bit more normal.

That's right: The man who likes to be referred to as as 'The Mooch', otherwise known as the man who held the position of White House Communications Director for a record-breaking 10 days, will appear on Celebrity Big Brother in the US.

If you're in any doubt as to what he will be like on a show like Celebrity Big Brother, we'll quickly remind you that this is the same man who told the New Yorker: "I'm not [Chief strategist] Steve Bannon, I'm not trying to suck my own cock."

Yeah, that guy.

Scaramucci joins a fairly hilarious and random group of people, which really pushes the definition of the word 'celebrity' to its absolute limits.

The lineup for the show is:

  • Dina Lohan - Lindsay Lohan's mother
  • Eva Marie - Former WWE wrestler
  • Tamar Braxton - Toni Braxton's sister
  • Jonathon Bennett - Actor, played Aaron in Mean Girls
  • Tom Green - Canadian comedian
  • Ricky Williams - NFL player
  • Ryan Lochte - Olympic swimmer
  • Kandi Burruss - Wrote the iconic song 'No Scrubs'
  • Joey Lawrence - Actor
  • Lolo Jones - Bobsled star

We told you it was random.

There is also a cash prize of $250,000 for the winner of the series.

Celebrity Big Brother US starts on 21 January.
