I’m A Celeb has kicked off in style with campmates successfully winning their first meals after a series of bug filled bushtucker trials.
Many were expecting this to open up a conversation about the Lucky singer in light of her recent bombshell memoir The Woman in Me but that’s not what happened.
Jamie Lynn sidestepped the question and responded: ‘I’ve always kind of been into music, you know what I mean?’

Not letting her get away that easily, Josie asked: ‘You’ve got a very musical family, haven’t you?’
To this the Zoey 101 star agreed but seemed to snub her sister as she said: ‘My mum played the piano a lot’ to Josie’s prompting about her grandma.
Fans were laughing every time someone referred to Jamie Lynn as Britney Spears’ sister, despite her efforts not to acknowledge the connection.
Jamie Lynn’s relationship with her famous sister is said to be strained and this apparent snub appears to have confirmed the rumours.
During Britney’s contentious conservatorship, her younger sister appeared to not be supportive of her.

The former Nickelodeon actress was reportedly named as a secret trustee of Britney’s financial assets, causing controversy among fans.
After seeming to hit back at the Free Britney movement, Jamie Lynn was accused of seeking more control of the singer’s funds.
Britney directly addressed the feud in 2021, saying: ‘I don’t like that my sister showed up at an awards show and performed MY SONGS to remixes !!!!! My so-called support system hurt me deeply.
In her memoir, the Circus hitmaker addressed the relationship and wrote: ‘My sister and I should have found comfort in each other, but unfortunately that hasn’t been the case. As I was fighting the conservatorship and receiving a lot of press attention, she was writing a book capitalising on it.

‘She rushed out salacious stories about me, many of them hurtful and outrageous. I was really let down.’
Later in The Woman in Me, Britney seemed to sympathise with her younger sister’s situation and shared: ‘My heart goes out to her for all those reasons.’
Britney added: ‘She will always be my sister, and I love her and her beautiful family. I wish the absolute best for them. She’s been through a lot, including teen pregnancy, divorce, and her daughter’s near-fatal accident.
‘She’s spoken about the pain of growing up in my shadow. I’m working to feel more compassion than anger toward her, and everyone who I feel has wronged me. It’s not easy.’
I’m A Celebrity continues tomorrow night at 9pm on ITV and ITVX.
