Snooki to battle it out on Celebrity Apprentice

Snooki and Boy George will compete on this year's 'The Celebrity Apprentice'.

The former 'Jersey Shore' star and Culture Club frontman are just two of the big names announced to appear on the 2016 series of the US reality show, with Arnold Schwarzenegger replacing Donald Trump as the host of the show.

Boxer Laila Ali, actress Brooke Burke-Charvet, former sportsman Eric Dickerson, comedian Matt Iseman, television personality Carrie Keagan, 'Queer Eye' fashion expert Carson Kressley, former professional basketball player Lisa Leslie, actor Jon Lovitz, Mötley Crüe singer Vince Neil, reality television star Kyle Richards, retired mixed martial artist Chael Sonnen, 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' star Porsha Williams, ex American football player Ricky Williams and Wilson Phillips singer Carnie Wilson complete the contenders.

Arnold's role on the programme was announced last year after Donald cut ties with network NBC, who broadcast the show Stateside.

The 'Terminator' actor said in a statement at the time: "I have always been a huge fan of 'The Celebrity Apprentice' and the way it showcases the challenges and triumphs of business and teamwork.

"I am thrilled to bring my experience to the boardroom and to continue to raise millions for charity. Let's get started!"

He will be joined by actress and entrepreneur Jessica Alba, business magnate Warren Buffett, and Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer as his advisers, with his fourth adviser being 'America's Next Top Model' businesswoman Tyra Banks.

Tyra announced on Wednesday (27.01.16) that she had some massive news, following the arrival of her and boyfriend Erik Asla's baby boy York, who was carried by a surrogate.

She wrote on Instagram: "The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here. He's got my fingers and big eyes and his daddy Erik's mouth and chin.

"As we thank the angel of a woman that carried our miracle baby boy for us, we pray for everyone who struggles to reach this joyous milestone. York Banks Asla, welcome to the world. (sic)"
