Meghan Markle’s estranged brother will reportedly appear in Big Brother VIP after touching down in Australia.

Thomas Markle Jr landed in Sydney on Thursday, New Idea reports.

The magazine was told he was spotted by staff at Sydney Airport.

Markle Jr, who is the Duchess of Sussex’s older estranged half-brother, will now undergo two weeks of quarantine.

The siblings share the same father but have not had contact with each other since 2011, according to the German tabloid newspaper Bild.

The celebrity edition of the reality show is due to begin filming in the coming months after COVID restrictions in NSW pushed production back.

Big Brother VIP will be hosted by Sonia Kruger and also feature some of Australia’s best-known celebrities.

The show is set to debut later this year.

A Seven spokesman couldn’t confirm whether Markle Jr had arrived in Australia for the show.

“We are not commenting on speculation about the cast of Big Brother VIP,” the spokesman said.

“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,” the spokesman added.

“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.”
