MIKE TYSON SET TO JOIN CELEBS

MIKE ­Tyson is being lined up for Celebrity Big Brother.

Channel 5 bosses are ­pulling no punches with the cast list for the new show, which starts exclusively on the network this summer.

Mike Tyson, 44, nicknamed The ­Baddest Man On The Planet, is one of sport’s most controversial figures in and out of the ring.

He was jailed for raping beauty queen Desiree Washington in 1992. On his release he had a series of comeback fights.

But in 1997 he shocked boxing again after biting off part of ­opponent Evander Holyfield’s ear.

The fighter, known as “Iron Mike’’ for his tenacity in the ring, hung up his gloves in 2002 after Britain’s Lennox Lewis beat him.


In recent years his life has hit a downward spiral as he was ­declared bankrupt in 2003 and ­became addicted to cocaine.

Then his daughter Exodus, four, died in an accident on an exercise machine in 2009.

But Tyson has rebuilt his life and quit drugs. And this week he renewed his marriage vows to wife Lakiha, 32, in Las Vegas.

A show source said: “To get Mike Tyson on Big Brother would be an amazing coup.

“The celebs being lined up for the new Channel 5 show are just amazing – it’s going to be must-see television this summer.”
