Jamie Lynn Spears is one of the contestants taking part in the 2023 series of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! but is allegedly refusing to take part in a staple of the show.

The sister of pop star Britney, Jamie Lynn is reportedly refusing media interviews ahead of the show starting.

While it is not required by their contract to take part, it is incredibly rare for a celebrity to not do so.

A TV source told The Mirror: "It is disappointing Jamie Lynn wouldn't speak to journalists out in Australia.

"She kept her head down at Brisbane airport which is fair enough after a long flight, but it is highly unusual to not take part in the media chats whilst waiting to go into camp this week.

"In fact, it is almost unprecedented and even Boy George took part last year when he has rarely done interviews for a decade.

"The last contestant we can remember to refuse to do the pre-show interviews was David Gest, and that was back in 2006.

"It is not a great sign if you are hoping Jamie Lynn is going to be hugely talkative on the show and give up lots of goss about Britney. Hopefully, she finds her voice in camp."

When Jamie Lynn Spears was revealed to be going on the 2023 series of I'm a Celebrity there was a bit of backlash from some fans.

She and her older sister Britney have a tumultuous relationship, with the singer criticising Jamie Lynn for not helping her more while she was held for years in a strict conservatorship by their father.
