Christine Lampard has blasted Thomas Markle Jr for slamming his younger sister Meghan Markle in the dramatic trailer for the Australian reality show Big Brother VIP.

In the trailer, 55 year old Thomas, introduces himself saying: "I'm Meghan Markle's brother, I'm the biggest brother of them all."

"I told Prince Harry, I think she's going to ruin your life. She's very shallow," added Thomas, who is the half-brother of the Duchess of Sussex, with them both sharing Thomas Markle Snr as a dad.

And Christine couldn't help but label his latest comment about Meghan as "cringe" as she filled in for presenting duties on Monday morning's instalment of Lorraine.

Christine then asked the show's Los Angeles correspondent Ross King if Thomas Markle's Big Brother appearance is making the news in the States.

Ross replied: "Yeah, a little bit, it's starting to filter through. It's interesting to see what comes of it and if that's the only thing he actually said. We'll find out in the coming few weeks."

Christine sighed as he stated: "Another headache for her, Harry and Meghan, undoubtedly!"

Thomas Jr is said to have lived with Meghan when she was born but they reportedly haven't spoken since 2010 – eight years before she married Prince Harry.

Last year, Thomas told Australian publication New Idea that he thinks Harry's decision to step away from the Royal family was down to an "ultimatum" by his sister.

However, Meghan revealed to Oprah earlier this year that they decided to step down and move to California for a number of other reasons.

Meghan claimed that she was denied mental health assistance when telling palace officials she felt suicidal.

Since settling in California, Harry has seen significant success with his work endeavours, one of which is his Apple+ show The Me You Can't See with Oprah.

Meghan has been equally as successful, having released a children's book called The Bench.

Meanwhile, Meghan's half-brother Thomas has joined Big Brother VIP – which is the Australian equivalent of Celebrity Big Brother – to replace Katie Hopkins.

Katie was axed from the line-up and deported back to the UK after joking about how she planned to breach the country's strict coronavirus guidelines.
