Former Barings Bank trader Nick Leeson, whose fraudulent trades cost the bank over £800 million in the 1990s, is set to appear on the UK television show Celebrity Big Brother.
Mr Leeson went on the run across the globe following discovery of his fraud before being captured in Germany and was then jailed in Singapore until 1999.
He will join other ‘well-known’ faces on the Channel 5 show including TV psychic Sally Morgan, popstar, Samantha Mumba, “The Human Ken Doll’, Rodrigo Alves, and former footballer, Jermaine Pennant.
