Perez Hilton will join the likes of Katie Hopkins, Calum Best and Patsy Kensit when he enters the Celebrity Big Brother house tonight.

The blogger has been confirmed to take part in the ‘twisted fairytale’ themed series, hosted once again by Emma Willis and Rylan Clark.

But who is he, really? Only time will tell, but here’s what we know so far:

Who?

Perez Hilton, 36

Where do I know that face from?

US showbiz blogger Perez writes a famous blog, Perezhilton.com, covering all the celeb gossip. He is known for his spats with the likes of Lady Gaga and his “outing” of allegedly gay celebrities. Perez was widely-criticised for publishing the leaked nude photos of Hollywood actress Jennifer Lawrence last year.

 

Why Celebrity Big Brother?

“People know the name Perez Hilton but people don’t know who I really am,” he says. “This is an exciting opportunity to show a whole bunch of people the real me. I’m excited to just have fun and expect the unexpected.”

What can we expect in the house?

Some truly outlandish outfits and according to Perez, we’ll “discover the difference between the persona and the character and the person behind that”. Perez says he has matured over the years and is no longer the naïve person he used to be.

“I am fun and fabulous and fearless!” he says.

Odds of winning?

The only other US contestant to take part in Celebrity Big Brother, actor Gary Busey, won the show last year. Could it be take-two for state-side success? Ladbrokes have placed odds of 12/1 on Perez taking the title at this stage.

Celebrity Big Brother starts at 9pm on Channel 5 tonight.
