Sheen next roastee for TV channel

Charlie Sheen was sacked from Two and a Half Men

Charlie Sheen has agreed to be the subject of Comedy Central's next celebrity roast.

The show will be taped in Los Angeles and is set to air in the US on September 19 - the same night Ashton Kutcher debuts as Sheen's replacement in the comedy Two and a Half Men.

But Sheen, who was thrown off the sitcom after his hard partying forced a production shutdown, won't be competing directly with Kutcher - the Comedy Central roast is scheduled for 10pm, an hour after Two and a Half Men.

Sheen said: "You could say I've been providing kindling for this roast for a while. It's time to light it up. It's going to be epic."

Previous 'roastees' who have subjected themselves to comedians' taunts include Donald Trump, David Hasselhoff and Flavor Flav.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
