Viewers are sure the ITV show has gained a very famous fan after Jamie Lynn jetted off to compete alongside the likes of Josie Gibson and Fred Sirieix. And it’s all to do with a mysterious Instagram post Britney posted to her account.
Sharing with her 43million followers, Britney posted the symbol of pi and a long list of its associated digits, written in chalk on a blackboard. She didn’t include a caption, and turned comments off – but X (formerly Twitter) users had some thoughts about the post.
Some argued that Britney was referencing her sister’s attempt to do maths during the latest Dingo Dollar Challenge. Stars were asked to calculate all of their ages combined to win treats for camp.
Taking to the platform, one user penned: “As soon as I saw it I couldn't help but think of Jamie Lynn trying to work out 62 + 32 on @imacelebrity haha Britney sure knows how to shade!" while someone else said: “Apparently Britney Spears now has a VPN so she can watch her sister!”
As another social media user said: “Britney Spears has definitely voted to have Jamie Lynn do this trial haha!” Someone else posted: “Britney as soon as the phone lines open for the next Bushtucker Trial,” alongside a GIF of the songstress picking up a phone.
It comes after a source told The US Sun that Britney had her team install a special system in her home so she can catch up on the show. The insider said: “Britney has asked her team to install a system which allows her to catch up on I’m A Celebrity when she can.

“Britney and Jamie Lynn spoke before she went in and naturally, Britney wants to keep up to date with what is happening. She has a busy life so she’s not going to be glued to the box but it means she can check in and catch up on what has been happening.”
Jamie Lynn confessed she spoke to her sister before jetting off for Australia, revealing on the show: “I think every family fights and has their stuff but I talked to her before I came here and we love each other.” She also added of their mum Lynne: “Oh, I always say this.
“My momma, not in a cocky way at all, my mom literally believed we were the best in the world. I think we grew up, all we ever did was sing and dance, that was our whole household, that’s how we were.”

Before entering the jungle, Jamie Lynn said she wants a “chance to show who I really am” on the reality show. She added: “There is literally every misconception you can have on a person about me, so I don’t take any of it seriously. But I do think going on I’m A Celebrity will be a nice way for people to see the real me.
“This is an opportunity to be myself and do something really cool and have awesome experiences in the meantime.”
While she has been criticised for crying a lot while away from her kids, she says her family are 100% behind her, explaining: “When they approached me, the first thing I had to do was talk it over with my family and my kids to make sure they were OK about me being gone for this amount of time. Once I got the all-clear from everybody, I was like, ‘Yeah, let’s go’.”
