Coming to TVs everywhere: Anthony Scaramucci’s every move.

The Port Washington native and Manhasset resident who spent 10 days as President Donald Trump’s communications director will star in the upcoming season of “Big Brother: Celebrity Edition,” according to CBS.

“The Mooch” is one of 12 who will live in a house under constant camera surveillance facing the weekly threat of elimination. The last celebrity remaining will win $250,000.

Scaramucci is the second ex-White House aide to compete on the show.

Last year, Omarosa Manigault Newman was a contestant just months after resigning from her spot in the Trump administration. 

In one televised conversation with a fellow contestant, Manigault Newman alluded to conditions in the White House being “so bad.”

“I was haunted by tweets, like, every single day, like ‘What is he going to tweet?’” she said.

Scaramucci was offered a spot on the show last season but turned it down, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Dina Lohan, of North Merrick, will also be competing this year. Lohan, actress Lindsay Lohan’s mother, filed for bankruptcy last fall because her home was in foreclosure, according to the New York Daily News.

The other “Big Brother” contestants are “Mean Girls” actor Jonathan Bennett, singers and reality television stars Tamar Braxton and Kandi Burruss, comedian Tom Green, professional track and bobsled athlete Lolo Jones, O.J. Simpson trial witness Kato Kaelin, actor Joey Lawrence, Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte, former WWE athlete Natalie Eva Marie and former NFL player Ricky Williams.

The season premieres on CBS Monday night.
