10 has dumped Pete Evans from the cast of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here following his controversial social media post featuring a neo-Nazi symbol known as the Black Sun.
“Network 10 can confirm that Pete Evans will not be appearing on this season of I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!” a 10 spokesperson said.
Filming of the series is getting underway in northern NSW. The decision to drop Evans was an abrupt one, as he had already started his mandatory pre-show quarantine and follows a growing social media backlash against the show.
The move also follows Pan Macmillan cutting ties with the former My Kitchen Rules host yesterday.
“Those views are not our views as a company or the views of our staff. Pan Macmillan is currently finalising its contractual relationship with Pete Evans and as such will not be entering any further publishing agreements moving forward,” the statement read.
“If any retailer wishes to return Pete Evans’ books please contact Pan Macmillan.”
Evans later deleted the post and apologised.
