Jamie Lynn Spears Opens Up About Her Unbreakable Bond with Britney on I’m a Celebrity: ‘A Sister’s Love’

Jamie Lynn Spears is revealing more about her connection with Britney, her older sister.

Speaking with TV host Fred Sirieix during the Saturday airing of the British reality series I’m a Celebrity…The 32-year-old actress, Get Me Out Of Here, talked about her upbringing next to the pop icon and shared her current feelings towards Britney.

In order to start the conversation, Sieieix, 51, asked Jamie Lynn to recollect her memories of Britney’s notorious kiss with Madonna at the 2003 MTV VMAs and to describe how it happened. “They completed the task. I was watching from home and thought, “Oh, this is going to be so much fun at school tomorrow. I can’t wait,” she remarked.

Jamie Lynn then talked about how, even as a small child, she looked up to her sister. “I always thought my sister’s work was the best,” she remarked. “I was prepared to go when it came to my sister, regardless of how I felt or what anyone thought. “Don’t talk about my sister; she’s the best,” I said to myself.

“And so literally I just thought — and, by the way, in today’s world it would mean nothing — but it was this iconic moment that they went with, and it happened, and that’s what they did,” she continued, referring to Britney and Madonna’s legendary VMAs performance, which also included Christina Aguilera and Missy Elliott.

Jamie Lynn recalled her mother Lynne’s response to the performance, saying, “My mum was like, ‘It’s artistic, she’s expressing herself.”

“Who became famous first?” Sieieix questioned the Sweet Magnolias star with curiosity.

Jamie Lynn said, “My sister, she’s ten years older,” in reference to Britney, 41. I was around six or seven when she became famous.

Then another competitor, Frankie Dettori, entered the discussion and questioned Jamie Lynn, “Is it true you don’t get on with [Britney] now?”

All she could say was, “I love my sister.”

The mother of two traveled to the Australian outback for season 23 of the show, where she competed alongside controversial former British politician Nigel Farage to become Queen of the Jungle.

The former cast member of Zoey 101 described the program as “a nice chance to show who I really am” before departing for Australia. “I don’t take any of it seriously because there is literally every misconception you can have about a person about me,” she continued.

The most contentious aspect of Jamie Lynn’s life has been her tense connection with her elder sister. Growing up in their hometown of Kentwood, Louisiana, Jamie Lynn, a recent Dancing with the Stars competitor, and Britney had a tight friendship despite their nearly 10-year age difference.

Jamie Lynn and Britney supported one another and collaborated on projects for the majority of their lives and careers, including Zoey 101 and Britney’s film debut Crossroads. However, their relationship deteriorated in the last few years as Britney’s 13-year conservatorship drew to an end. The two openly fought over Jamie Lynn’s biography Things I Should Have Said: Family, Fame, and Figuring it Out, which was released in January 2022.

“I have always loved and supported my sister. Two months after Britney’s conservatorship ended, Jamie Lynn told PEOPLE, “I have to respect however she works through that. It’s very clear that this has been a painful process.” “This is a challenging circumstance. There comes a time when you have to say no to someone who doesn’t want your help.

Meanwhile, Britney has opened up about their tumultuous relationship in her shocking memoir, The Woman In Me, which was published in October and was exclusively preview in PEOPLE.

Jamie Lynn was aware that I was contacting her for assistance and that she was bothering me. On being admitted to a mental health facility in 2018, Britney said, “I felt like she should have taken my side.”

Britney does, however, express in her writing her optimism that she and Jamie Lynn can still work things out.

“She and her lovely family are my loves, and she will always be my sister. The singer of “Hold Me Closer” said, “I’m trying to feel more compassion than anger toward her and everyone who I feel has wronged me.”
