An e-mail posted on Twitter appears to show her manager and husband Mark Cross confirming the controversial commentator has been booked to appear in schools in Wales and Scotland as part of a tour which is an 'open debate' which discusses the 'current political / media landscape'.

Politicians have since taken to social media to argue against Hopkins appearing in schools with one MP saying she is 'no role model'.

The Education Secretary said she is 'unelected, unpleasant and needs PR and reaction to thrive'.

According to Hopkins, the Stand Strong School Tour will begin in November and she will visit state schools to speak in front of 11-16 year olds.

She added she will debate issues including Brexit, Trump and the Black Lives Matter movement.

The former Apprentice contestant, who is now a columnist and broadcaster, is no stranger to controversy. She caused outrage earlier this year with a tweet that appeared to reference the term used by the Nazis for the Holocaust.
