Thomas is understood to have flown back on his own accord, despite his visa lasting for several more months because of the restrictions currently in place in NSW.

It comes just days after the controversial personality joked that he was loving Australia so much that he was ‘planning to hide from immigration’.

‘Tom Markle here coming to you live from the Big Brother VIP hotel backyard, you know, where rations get a little low, so he makes us run outside here in the ocean and get her own food,’ he said in the beachside clip.

‘It’s going to be an amazing, amazing show. I’m looking forward to making it all the way to the end,’ he teased, before he saying how much he loved being in Australia.

‘As a matter of fact, I think I’m going to hide from immigration and I’m not going to go home,’ he said with a laugh before the clip ended.

Katie, 46, was deported from Australia last month while completing her mandatory hotel quarantine ahead of her scheduled appearance on the show.

After complaining about the strict quarantine system and boasting about flouting the rules, Katie was hauled back to the airport and put on a flight back to England.

Australia has enforced strict border closures since the start of the pandemic, with tickets into the country rationed and all arrivals forced to undergo mandatory 14-day quarantine in their city of arrival along with repeat testing before being allowed in. 

Earlier this month, it was revealed that Thomas had officially signed with Australia’s premiere talent agent, Max Markson.

Markson, who is described as a ‘black-belt master of the art of spin’ announced the news via Instagram, uploading a promo shot for Big Brother VIP alongside a caption that confirmed Thomas was officially on his books. 

In a promo for Big Brother VIP, Thomas claimed he’d ‘warned’ Prince Harry, 36, about his sister before their marriage.

I’m Meghan Markle’s brother, I’m the biggest brother of them all,’ Thomas said while introducing himself in the video. 

He then added: ‘I told Prince Harry, I think she’s going to ruin your life. She’s very shallow’.
