Joining her on the reality TV show, hosted by celebrity counsellor Dr. Drew Pinsky, will be Jeremy London, Jason Wahler and former teen idol Leif Garrett.

Actor London recently hit the news when he reported he'd been kidnapped and forced to buy drugs and alcohol for a gang of youths in Palm Desert, California; reality TV bad boy Wahler was arrested and booked for misdemeanour battery in June (10) after allegedly assaulting a woman at a party in Hollywood, California, and Garrett faces jail time after he was arrested on suspicion of possession of heroin in February (10).

The troubled stars fighting their drink and drugs demons at the Pasadena Recovery Center, where Celebrity Rehab is filmed, will be joined by fashion icon Janice Dickinson and oil heir Jason Davis, among others.

It is not known whether previously announced rehab-mates Bonnie Pointer, Tila Tequila and rapper Bizzy Bone will be part of the new show.

Producers initially feared they would have to scrap the season after failing to net enough star names. They reportedly offered Lindsay Lohan and Liza Minnelli big deals to appear on the show. Both stars turned them down.
