Report: Thomas Markle Jr. for Big Brother VIP
Estranged half-brother of the Duchess of Sussex is rumoured for Seven reality series.
Media reports are claiming Thomas Markle Jr. has arrived in Australia to appear in Big Brother VIP.
Thomas, 55, is the estranged half-brother of the Duchess of Sussex, with the siblings reportedly not having contact since 2011. He spoke to Sunrise in January 2020 about their relationship (below).
The reports follow the now-infamous deportation of Katie Hopkins, and Caitlyn Jenner arriving. There are also whispers Omarosa Manigault Newman could be in the mix.
“We are not commenting on speculation about the cast of Big Brother VIP,” a Seven spokesman said.
“All will be revealed soon and Big Brother is looking forward to meeting the new collection of housemates. Much of the speculation has been wrong, but it’s important to note that Seven ensures the arrival of international artists in Australia does not impact or impede on Australians returning home from overseas. Any international artists associated with Seven are on arrangements that exist outside of the flight cap on international arrivals and have been granted exemptions by the government to come here.
“All our artists also undertake quarantine measures in line with government legislation. Much like the arrival of world-class international actors bolstering Australia’s film industry at present, these artists are contributing to the making of leading TV productions, creating jobs for many people at a difficult time for the creative and production sectors.”
The series is currently in pre-production with filming to commence soon.
