Singers Meat Loaf and La Toya Jackson are among the stars vying to become Donald Trump's latest Celebrity Apprentice.

Contenders for the US charity version of the show, hosted by the business tycoon, also include former teen idol David Cassidy and actor Gary Busey.

Deaf Oscar-winning actress Marlee Matlin and singer Dionne Warwick have also signed up to appear.

Poison singer Bret Michaels won the show last year.

Retired baseball player Jose Canseco and US TV personality Star Jones will be others hoping to hear "You're Hired!" while raising money for their chosen charity.

So will Richard Hatch and NeNe Leakes, from reality shows Survivor and The Real Housewives of Atlanta respectively.

Soap actress Lisa Rinna, supermodel Niki Taylor, rapper Lil Jon, country singer John Rich and model Hope Dworaczyk complete the line-up.

Previous winners of the show include comedienne Joan Rivers and former Britain's Got Talent judge Piers Morgan.

The show - which sees its participants compete in business-oriented tasks - begins on 6 March on US network NBC.
