British commentator Katie Hopkins has had her Australian visa cancelled and she will be deported, after putting staff at risk while undergoing hotel quarantine.
The far-right figure was initially granted a visa to come and be a part of Big Brother, as part of a request from the NSW state government.
Hopkins then published a video to her social media, which has since been taken down, calling Australia’s lockdowns as ‘the greatest hoax in human history’.

She also detailed her plans to breach quarantine rules.
After learning of her behaviour over the weekend, Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews immediately ordered a review of her visa terms.
While Seven tore up her contract after bringing the network into disrepute.
“Seven Network and Endemol Shine Australia confirm that Katie Hopkins is not part of Big Brother VIP,” a statement from the network read over the weekend.
“Seven and Endemol Shine strongly condemn her irresponsible and reckless comments in hotel quarantine.”
Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews has this morning confirmed that Katie Hopkins will be leaving Australia imminently.
