Mumbai: Controversial Australian cricketer Andrew Symonds is the latest international celebrity to participate in reality show `Bigg Boss`.

The former all-rounder has confirmed his participation in the Bigg Boss house.

Andrew Symonds will enter the show on Wednesday.

Earlier, Swami Agnivesh and filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt also entered the house for a brief period as a guest.

Symonds, who was involved in an acrimonious spat with Indian off-spinner Harbhahajan Singh after accusing the latter of racially abusing him in 2008, is the second international celebrity to enter the Bigg Boss house this season after Indo-Canadian porn star Sunny Leone.

The much-hyped reality show kickstarted with Shakti Kapoor as the lone male and 13 female contestants.

TV actor Amar Upadhyay, `Splitsvilla` winner Siddharth Bhardwaj and TV actor Akashdeep Sehgal subsequently entered the show after a few evictions.

Amar, Siddharth, Akashdeep, Shonali Nagrani, Mahek Chahal and Juhi Parmar are the surviving contestants.
