“It’s going to be a great, great show. I’m looking forward to making it all the way to the end,” he teased, before saying how much he loved being in Australia.
“Actually, I think I’m going to hide from immigration and not go home,” he said with a laugh before the clip ended.

Katie, 46, was deported from Australia last month as she completed her mandatory hotel quarantine ahead of her scheduled appearance on the show.
After complaining about the strict quarantine system and bragging about breaking the rules, Katie was taken back to the airport and put on a flight back to England.
Australia has enforced strict border closures since the start of the pandemic, with tickets to the country being rationed and all arrivals forced to undergo mandatory 14-day quarantine in their city of arrival, along with repeated tests before being admitted.
Earlier this month it was announced that Thomas had officially signed a contract with Max Markson, Australia’s top talent agent.
Markson, who is described as a “black-belt master of the art of spin,” announced the news via Instagram, uploading a promo shot for Big Brother VIP alongside a caption confirming that Thomas was officially on his books.
In a promo for Big Brother VIP, Thomas claimed he had ‘warned’ 36-year-old Prince Harry about his sister before their marriage.
