Katie Hopkins has been axed from Australia's Big Brother after bragging about breaking lockdown by flashing hotel staff.

Channel 7 confirmed the sacking as police were bombarded with reports about the social commentator's now deleted Insta video.

It said in a statement: “Seven Network and Endemol Shine Australia confirm that Katie Hopkins is not part of Big Brother VIP.

“Seven and Endemol Shine strongly condemn her irresponsible and reckless comments in hotel quarantine.”

Her sacking came as immigration minister Alex Hawke confirmed the border force had launched an investigation alongside the police.

He said: “With NSW & Victoria in lockdown, a reminder that temporary visa holders must obey public health orders.

“Australian Border Force is reviewing this matter. Where visa conditions are breached, individuals may face visa cancellation in accordance with the law.”

NSW cops said: “The NSW Police Force is working closely with Australian Border Force to ascertain whether the visa to enter Australia provided to a 46-year-old woman from the United Kingdom remains valid.

“The NSW Police Force will assist with any operational requirements to assist the woman to return to her country of origin if it is deemed necessary.”

Katie, 46, “called out” the Sydney and Melbourne lockdowns in a lengthy Instagram rant.

She bragged about deliberately trying to defy hotel quarantine rules by opening her door to workers who are delivering her food naked.

Hopkins mocked Australian residents, saying: “I think it’s bulls**t. I think it’s bulls**t that I can be here and you can’t.

“I think it’s bulls**t that families who need to visit relatives here, whether they’re dying or not… it’s bulls**t that I’m here, and you can’t be.”

She also told followers she wanted to be “very clear” she was able to get into Australia thanks to her career as a “gobby mouth”.
