Her time in the house has been characterised by hilarity (including a moment in which she told Dan Osborne to “show us your d**k” during a challenge), but she has also clashed with housemates over ‘disgusting’ behaviour, such as the state of the shower.


Who is Kirstie Alley?

Hollywood actress Kirstie Alley – star of Cheers and Star Trek movie sequel The Wrath of Khan – is one of the confirmed names for this series of Celebrity Big Brother.

Alley is best-known for playing bar manager Rebecca in long-running US sitcom Cheers for six years, from 1987 to 1993, alongside Kelsey Grammer, Woody Harrelson and Ted Danson, with whose character Sam she shared a steamy sexual chemistry.

Her more recent TV roles include The King of Queens, Hot in Cleveland and Scream Queens.

Back in 2011 she was also a contestant on the US version of Strictly Come Dancing – Dancing With the Stars. She placed second in the series and returned to the show for an ‘all-stars’ season three years later.
