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

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
