Thomas Markle Jr. has reportedly flown into Australia and is rumoured to be joining the cast of the celebrity version of Big Brother.
New Idea claims airport staff noticed the paternal half-brother of Meghan Markle landing in Sydney earlier today (July 22).
The publication claims Markle Jr. will be starring on Big Brother VIP, which is due to start filming soon.
However, Channel 7 is staying tight lipped about the possible casting.
A spokesperson for the network told the Daily Telegraph: "We are not commenting on speculation about the cast of Big Brother VIP. All will be revealed soon and Big Brother is looking forward to meeting the new collection of housemates."
Channel 7 also sought to quell potential outrage from people over the idea these housemates would be taking up valuable hotel quarantine or visa spots.
There are thousands of Aussies stranded overseas and are finding it difficult to get back home amid the pandemic.
They've been understandably furious at seeing the likes of Caitlyn Jenner and Katie Hopkins permitted to fly in on 'critical skills' visas.
The spokesperson said: "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."
Thomas Markle Jr. hasn't been shy about talking to the media about his uber famous sister.
He famously wasn't invited to her wedding with Prince Harry back in 2018 and has since slagged her off for the way she has treated the rest of the family.
Thomas Jr. has called Meghan a 'phony' and a 'jaded, shallow, conceited woman'.
It's unclear whether the bitter half-brother is being flown in as an original cast member of Big Brother VIP or if he was chosen to replace Katie Hopkins.
The British commentator was booted from the show and Australia earlier this week for deliberately breaking hotel quarantine rules.
