Pictures obtained by the Daily Star show the controversial columnist, now 39, chugging cider from a plastic bottle and laying on a bed with her bare bum exposed.
The paper posted a photo montage on Twitter and captioned it: "Our cider-swiggin' & stripping Katie Hopkins sure has double standards, huh..."
And the story was confirmed by Big Brother's narrator Marcus Bentley, although he did get her name wrong.
He tweeted: "Katy Hopkins was a guinea pig on the first ever Big Brother !"
