Big Brother winner Reggie Sorensen slams Katie Hopkins over her plans to deliberately break hotel quarantine rules – as outraged Australians call for the British star to be deported
Big Brother winner Reggie Sorensen has slammed Katie Hopkins after the British columnist revealed her plans to deliberately flout restriction rules while in hotel quarantine.
Hopkins, 46 – who is rumoured to have flown to Australia as a ‘VIP’ for a celebrity appearance on Big Brother – infamously ‘called out’ lockdowns in Sydney and Melbourne on Sunday during an Instagram live video.
During the video, Hopkins openly mocked the 14-day hotel quarantine rules before revealing her plans to deliberately break them by opening her door completely naked and mask-free to workers who deliver her food.
After viewing the footage, a visibly angry Reggie tweeted: ‘As a former Big Brother Housemate who won the hearts of Australians I am lost for words to see that #katiehopkins is going on VIP Big Brother.

‘I don’t know how she was let into the country or to be even going on the show! It’s disgraceful #BigBrotherAU.’
Following the video, outraged Australians called for Hopkins to be deported with more than 20,000 people signing a petition to send the commentator back to the UK.
Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce also blasted the British personality on Sunday.
‘I’m the one who wanted to send home Johnny Depp’s dogs home so I have no problem sending home someone who wants to flout our laws,’ he said on ABC’s Insiders.

‘If you want to do that, pack your bongo and get out of the country.’
Hopkins had taken to Instagram and ‘called out’ Australia’s tough lockdowns at 5am on Saturday.
‘The police officer who checked me in told me, when they knock on my door I have to wait 30 seconds until I can open the door,’ she said, while breaking out into hysterics.

‘I can open the door but I can only do it in a face mask.’
The media personality openly revealed she wants to flout the rules by frightening workers and answering the door without waiting – while completely naked and maskless- in the hopes of provoking police.
Hopkins is now being investigated by the Australian Border Force.
Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews told The Daily Telegraph: ‘It is despicable that anyone would behave in such a way that puts our health officials and community at risk.
‘I have directed Australian Border Force to immediately consider the facts of this matter and urgently review whether this individual is complying with the requirements of her visa.’
