British far-right commentator Katie Hopkins will be deported from Australia after her visa was cancelled.

Ms Hopkins was brought to Australia by Network Seven to join its reality television program Big Brother.

But she was dropped from the show after deliberately disobeying safety protocols in hotel quarantine.

Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews described the behaviour as shameful and has since cancelled her visa.

“We will be getting her out of the country as soon as we can arrange that,” Ms Andrews said on Monday.

“I am hoping that will happen imminently.”

Ms Hopkins appeared to blame the NSW government for Ms Hopkins coming to Australia, with her visa granted on the basis of economic benefit.

But the federal government is ultimately responsible for issuing visas.
