Pete Evans was dumped from the cast of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! earlier this month, after posting a neo-Nazi meme to Facebook.

And now it seems that producers of the show are having a laugh at Pete’s expense.

On Friday, Channel 10 released a new clue about a mystery celeb set to appear on the program, teasing the involvement of a ‘renowned chef’.

This phrasing is particularly interesting because Pete, 47, is often referred to in the press these days as a ‘disgraced chef’.  

‘A renowned chef is heading into the Aussie jungle,’ the clue reads. ‘And we can’t wait to feed him critters.’

Below the Instagram post, fans tried to guess the identity of the chef, with many speculating it could be Gordon Ramsay, Manu Feildel or even Nigella Lawson.

Pete was dumped at the eleventh hour from I’m a Celebrity… after posting a neo-Nazi meme to Facebook.

At the time, the former My Kitchen Rules judge, 47, laughed off his latest scandal outside his farm in northern NSW, offering a half-hearted apology to those offended by his racist social media post.

Pete – whose career plunged to new depths after being shunned by Channel 10, his publisher Pan Macmillan and retailers Big W and Dymocks in the space of 24 hours – grinned widely as he told Daily Mail Australia: ‘I apologise to anyone who might have taken it out of context.’

‘I promise you, whatever anybody is saying, that is not who I am,’ he insisted, before bursting into a fit of giggles.

‘And once again, deepest apologies to anyone who might have taken offence to that comment, or the image that I shared, because it was never meant to be taken in that way,’ he added.

When asked how he felt about being axed from I’m a Celebrity, Pete once again laughed hysterically, saying: ‘Oh! I don’t even know what you’re talking about!’ 

He threw up a peace sign for the camera and walked away, still cackling to himself.

Pete was dropped by Channel 10 after he’d already commenced his mandatory pre-show quarantine near where I’m a Celebrity is being filmed in northern NSW.

Once he got the call he’d been axed at 6:30am, he packed his bags and returned to his farm, which is just a short drive from the set. 

He was set to join the cast of I’m a Celebrity, but the network pulled the plug overnight in response to his latest scandal.

‘Network 10 can confirm that Pete Evans will not be appearing on this season of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’ a spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia.

According to former Channel 10 executive Rob McKnight, Pete was left ‘furious’ by the decision. 

Shameful: He posted this cartoon of a caterpillar wearing a MAGA cap and a butterfly with the racist Black Sun emblem on its wing - with the suggestion being that neo-Nazism is the natural evolution for Donald Trump supporters

Meanwhile, entertainment reporter Peter Ford tweeted that Pete was still being ‘paid in full’ despite being dropped from the line-up.

‘Yes, paid in full. About $200,000. Had he done the show and got to the end he would have made even more,’ Ford wrote. 

However, a Ten spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia on Tuesday: ‘Network 10 has made no such payments.’

Pete has faced significant backlash for sharing a neo-Nazi meme on Facebook.

The post was a cartoon of a caterpillar wearing a MAGA cap and a butterfly with the racist Black Sun emblem on its wing – with the suggestion being that neo-Nazism is the natural evolution for Donald Trump supporters.

Pete is an enthusiastic supporter of the president and advocates the baseless claim that Joe Biden only won the 2020 election due to voter fraud.

The Black Sun symbol became infamous after it was introduced by top-ranking Nazi Heinrich Himmler during World War II.  

Remorseful: He later deleted the post and replaced it with an image of a rainbow heart alongside a sarcastic non-apology in which he claimed he would be 'studying all of the symbols that have ever existed' to make sure he doesn't offend anyone again

The symbol has since been adopted by numerous neo-Nazi groups, and by Christchurch mosque shooter Brenton Tarrant.

Pete seemingly confirmed he was aware of the meaning of the symbol when a fan stated they recognised it, and Pete replied: ‘I was waiting for someone to see that.’

‘Sincere apologies to anyone who misinterpreted a previous post of a caterpillar and a butterfly having a chat over a drink and perceived that I was promoting hatred,’ he wrote.

‘I look forward to studying all of the symbols that have ever existed and research them thoroughly before posting. Hopefully this symbol❤ resonates deeply into the hearts of ALL! ❤’
