Skye Wheatley shot to stardom on Big Brother Australia in 2014 and has become one of the biggest names to ever emerge from the franchise. So it was rather bizarre that she was not included in the show’s stellar line-up of returning housemates for its ‘Back to the Future’ series for 2022.

However, as exclusively revealed in episode 174 of the So Dramatic! podcast, Skye was included in the show’s initial lineup but was dropped at the eleventh hour following an insensitive sex joke she made about her partner Lachlan Waugh.

“Skye Wheatley got onto the Big Brother season being filmed now (Back to the Future) with some of the original series housemates,” a source dished.

“But they cancelled her when she posted about forcing her boyfriend to have sex with her.”

The insider then said that the 28-year-old influencer was posting on Instagram asking her fans to “protest” for her to go on the show.

“I think she wants fans to show they want her so producers change their mind,” they explained.

What Sex Joke Did Skye Wheatley Make About Her Partner Lachlan Waugh?

Last September, Skye joked that she demands sex from her boyfriend, even when he isn’t in the mood.

During a Q&A, one fan asked the mother-of-two: “Who is more dominant in bed?”

Skye responded, saying: “Hahahahahaha me. But only when he mad and says he doesn’t wonna have sex. Ain’t nobody telling me no. I won’t take no for an answer if I want sessi time. [sic]”

She then asked her followers: “Who can relate?”

Following this, Skye was forced to issue a grovelling apology to her fans for her insensitive and triggering words.”

Welp! We’re not surprised that the Big Brother powers at be decided to pull her from the show! Not only would comments like this be in breach of her contract because it “brings the show into disrepute,” but it is also obviously not behaviour they would want to be seen condoning or supporting.

She also revealed on her vlog in September that she was stopping breastfeeding her son Bear early, because she was going away for an exciting opportunity that required her to be away for a number of weeks.

She later revealed that the opportunity had fallen through and expressed that she was deeply upset about it.
