Meghan Markle’s brother Thomas Markle Jr joins Big Brother VIP as he arrives in Sydney to begin hotel quarantine… just days after Katie Hopkins was deported


Meghan Markle’s half-brother has moved to Australia and will soon join the cast of the reality show Big Brother VIP.

Thomas Markle Jr. was seen on Thursday by staff at Sydney airport before going into hotel quarantine, where he will stay for 14 days.

Her arrival in the country comes just days after another Big Brother contestant, Katie Hopkins, was deported for threatening to break quarantine rules.

A Channel Seven spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia: “We are not commenting on speculation about the cast of Big Brother VIP.

‘Everything will be out soon and looking forward to meeting the new collection of Big Brother housemates.’

It is unclear whether the Duchess of Sussex’s older half-brother, Markle Jr., is replacing far-right commentator Hopkins, who was deported back to the UK on Monday.

Hopkins, 46, caused a national uproar when she tried to violate quarantine rules by opening her door naked and masked to hotel staff on Instagram.

The reality star, known for her extreme views on immigration and COVID-19, had her visa revoked on Sunday and flew back to the UK the next morning.

Other notable contestants attending Big Brother VIP include Caitlyn Jenner, who flew in from LA last week and is in hotel quarantine.

Jenner, 71, who is also running for governor of California, is rumored to have received $500,000 for her appearance on the show.

Markle Jr.’s salary is unknown.

Meanwhile, Markle Jr is likely to receive a ‘critical skills’ visa to be allowed to enter Australia during the COVID pandemic.

This visa is granted when there is a clear economic advantage of allowing the person into the country.

Filming of Big Brother VIP is set to begin in the coming months at a purpose-built complex at Sydney Olympic Park.

The show will air on Channel Seven later this year.

The set is currently being manufactured despite a ban on construction works in Sydney, after special permission was granted to the makers.
