Watch: Tributes pour in for Keith Chegwin (Provider: PA)

Katie Hopkins has decided to provoke controversy yet again with a "sick" post following the death of Keith Chegwin.

The columnist opted to cause outrage for no apparent reason following the passing of the much-loved presenter on Monday (December 11), by joking that she was behind his death.

Hopkins posted a picture of herself with Chegwin in the Celebrity Big Brother house on Twitter, next to a photo of herself with the late Peaches Geldof on This Morning.

"I'm not saying there's a pattern here," she wrote. "But I was the last one to film with both of them. Be warned."

People were naturally outraged by the post, some branding it "distasteful":




Hopkins appeared in Celebrity Big Brother in 2015 with Chegwin where they clashed, and she also had a few run-ins with Geldof before her death in 2014.

Earlier this year, Hopkins was successfully sued by food blogger Jack Monroe for £24,000 in damages in a libel case.

Last month, she parted ways with the Mail Online after her contract was not renewed with the website, and she left her radio show on LBC over the summer following a controversial tweet on the Manchester Arena bombing.
