As 14 new contestants enter the Celebrity Big Brother house tonight, it’s time to get to know them a little better.

Who? The pretty eccentric Gary Busey, everybody.

Where do I know that face from? He starred in Nineties classic Point Break alongside Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze, and then there was The Buddy Holly Story, which won him an Oscar nomination. Gary is also known for a near-fatal motorbike accident in 1989 that saw stricter helmet laws enacted in California.

Little known fact? Gary has black belts in a ton of martial arts from budo-jujitsu to capoeira and kendo.

What can we expect in the house? Plenty of crazy behaviour – Gary claims his accident altered his brain.

Odds of winning? Average on first look at 10/1. Could do it, but probably won’t.

Hosted by Emma Willis, series seven of the hit reality show airs on Channel 5, with viewers promised “countless twists, turns and tough tasks”.

The house has been given a make-over for the new run, but celebrities will not be expecting VIP treatment but, instead, plenty of drama and tension.

Last year’s show was won by Geordie Shore’s Charlotte Crosby, who beat 5ive singer Abz Lowe to the title.
