Australia has cancelled Right-wing British commentator Katie Hopkins's visa after she boasted about flouting the country's strict hotel quarantine rules, a senior official said on Monday.
Hopkins had flown into Sydney to appear on a reality television show Big Brother VIP when she posted a video on Instagram talking about answering the door naked and maskless to workers delivering meals to her hotel room, local media reported.
