Rapper Coolio and “Austin Powers” actor Verne “Mini-Me” Troyer have signed on to appear in the UK’s upcoming season of “Celebrity Big Brother,” which is scheduled to premiere on Jan. 2.      

       The series, which has a non-celebrity American version that airs each summer on CBS, broadcasts on Channel 4 in the UK and features “housemates” who must complete a series of challenges while having no contact with the outside world.

       The housemates are followed 24-hours a day by 35 cameras and 40 microphones, which broadcasts their movements to a live viewing audience.       

       The cast will also include TV host Terry Christian and Scottish socialist politician and former MSP Tommy Sheridan, who also leads the Solidarity party.

       Coolio currently stars in “Coolio‘s Rules,” a reality series on the Oxygen network that follows the day-to-day life of the rapper and his family.
