Katie Hopkins has been axed from the upcoming season of Australia’s Big Brother VIP after reportedly admitting to deliberately disobeying strict hotel quarantine rules.
 

The former Apprentice star turned far-right commentator arrived in Australia this week and was immediately placed into two weeks of quarantine in a government-mandated hotel. 

On Saturday, the 46-year-old reportedly said in an Instagram live video she was deliberately disobeying quarantine rules by taunting guards and opening her hotel room door without a mask. 

Seven Network and Endemol Shine Australia confirm that Katie Hopkins is not part of Big Brother VIP. “Seven and Endemol Shine strongly condemn her irresponsible and reckless comments in hotel quarantine. 

Her actions quickly drew a wave of criticism and, on Sunday, the Seven Network – which airs the reality TV show – said she would not feature in the upcoming season. 

It said in a statement: “Seven Network and Endemol Shine Australia confirm that Katie Hopkins is not part of Big Brother VIP. 

“Seven and Endemol Shine strongly condemn her irresponsible and reckless comments in hotel quarantine.” 

Earlier today, the country’s immigration minister Alex Hawke said the border force had launched an investigation. 

Referring to a story on Hopkins’s actions, he said in a statement on Twitter: “With NSW & Victoria in lockdown, a reminder that temporary visa holders must obey public health orders. 

“Australian Border Force is reviewing this matter. Where visa conditions are breached, individuals may face visa cancellation in accordance with the law.” 

The NSW Police Force said it was aiding the border force review. 

Hopkins’ trip to Sydney has caused outrage on social media, with many furious that the far-right commentator who was permanently suspended from Twitter for hateful conduct was allowed into Australia while family members and friends were unable to come home.
