Season 22 of Celebrity Big Brother has kicked off!
Celebrity housemate number one is best known for starring in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan in 1982.
It’s none other than Vulcan Starfleet officer, Lieutenant JG Saavik AKA Kirstie Alley!

What is Kirstie Alley’s Age?
Kirstie was born on 12 January 1951 in Wichita, Kansas, USA.
If you’re good at maths then you’ll know this made Kirstie 67 years old – not that she looks it!
Kirstie Alley is 70?!!! She looks younger than me 😩 #CBBUK

She has two children named William True and Lillie Price. And has been married and divorced twice.
Before becoming an actress Kirstie was an interior designer, which may be why she was so impressed by the 1930’s Hollywood decor in the Celebrity Big Brother house!
What Does Kirstie Do For a Living?
In November 1995 Kirstie received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for her contribution to Motion Picture.

Alley has won many awards in her lifetime.
From 1987 to 1993 she played the role of Rebecca Howe in the NBC sitcom Cheers.
Growing up watching Cheers in its heyday, a little part of me has died seeing Kirstie Alley in #CBB

In 1991, 1992, 1993 she won a Golden Globe, a People’s Choice Award and a Primetime Emmy Award for her role in Cheers.
Kirstie’s Been in the Media Spotlight
Kirstie has been the subject of media attention due to her dramatic weight loss and gain.
After “being skinny her whole life” Kirstie appeared on The Dr Oz Show in 2012, where she admitted that she started gaining weight in 2003.
While working as a Jenny Craig spokesperson from 2004 to 2007, Kirstie lost over five stone, bringing her weight down to just over 10 stone.
She was a runner-up on Dancing with the Stars season 12, so there are high hopes for Kirstie to make it pretty far in Celebrity Big Brother.
Haven’t watched #BigBrother in years & stumbled across it tonight. The house looks beautiful. I can’t believe they got Kirstie Alley, someone I’ve actually heard of. I think she’s going to be very interesting to watch. #cbb

If we’re lucky we’ll get to see Rodrigo and Kirstie samba through the house this season.
Now, that would be a picture!
