The full lineup for this season of the reality television show run by businessman Mark Bouris has now been announced and definitely includes controversial politician Pauline Hanson.
Hanson told The Daily Telegraph that her forceful nature, work ethic and leadership skills will help her win the competition, but said that she is fully expecting the "usual scrutiny" that she gets wherever she goes. "This is Pauline Hanson," she said. "I'll do what I can."
Polly Porter, who is best known as the winner of this year's TV renovation contest The Block, is also taking part in Celebrity Apprentice, alongside celebrity publicist Max Markson, singer Deni Hines and National Rugby League star Wendell Sailor.
Other famous contestants include former Miss Universe Australia Jesinta Campbell, swimming champion Lisa Curry, politician Warwick Capper, AFL star Shane Crawford, dancer Jason Coleman and Lara Bingle's alleged ex-lover Didier Cohen.
Home and Away actor Lincoln Lewis was rumoured to be taking part in the show but has not been included in the final lineup list.
