Helen Flanagan and Gary Busey

Gary is best known for starring in 'Point Break' with Keanu Reeves and playing the lead in 'The Buddy Holly Story'.

More recently he appeared in the US TV shows 'Entourage' and 'Celebrity Rehab', where he was treated for substance abuse.

And 'Gogglebox' fans will be happy to hear that Essex lad George Gilby has also reportedly signed on the dotted line to appear in the new series when it returns this summer.

A source told The Sun: “The pressure is on for producers to match the last series of CBB but it’s going to be tough.

“Bosses always like a Hollywood star in the mix and Gary ticks that box.

“Producers hope George will be a cheeky chappie but are gutted Helen turned them down.”

The last series of 'Celebrity Big Brother', which featured the likes of Luisa Zissman, Lee Ryan, Jim Davidson, Dappy and Jasmine Waltz, was a huge ratings hit for Channel 5.
