London: Playboy Playmates Kristina and Karissa Shannon have signed up for the latest season of Celebrity Big Brother.
The American twins have promised the show’s bosses that they will steam up the series.
Kristina and Karissa had spent two years as the live-in girlfriends of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner at Los Angeles’ Playboy Mansion before moving out last year.
An insider for the Channel 5 series, which starts on January 5, hoped that ladies’ man housemate Kirk Norcross from The Only Way Is Essex, will be the perfect “victim” for the 22-year-old pair.
“The girls have pledged to really sex up the Big Brother house. Kirk won’t know what has hit him,” the Sun quoted the insider as saying.
“But with his ladies’ man reputation, he is sure to be tempted by our Playmates,” the insider added.
However, the girls also have a tougher side as both have been put on probation in 2007 for aggravated battery during a fight at a party.
Karissa was arrested again for a second alleged assault later that year.
