The brand new series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! kicked off with an almighty bang last night after weeks of excitement surrounding the big-name line-up.
And the Zoey 101 star has already left viewers confused with her introduction interview - where she said she was 'best known for being an actress and a singer'.
"I have been doing it since I could basically walk.” Jamie Lynn said.
However, it seemed that many people are pretty confident that her biggest claim to fame is, of course, being the younger sister of Britney Spears.
And some viewers picked up on an apparent dig that the actor appeared to make about her famous older sister.
After taking part in a nail-biting sky-dive and a gruelling creepy-crawly Bushtucker trial, the 32-year-old was brought into camp to meet her fellow campmates, later striking up a conversation with This Morning presenter Josie Gibson.
Josie said: "You’ve got a very musical family, haven’t you?" before asking if her 'grandma was into it'.
However, Jamie Lynn did not mention Britney, instead saying: "My mum played the piano a lot."
Upon being asked by the presenter about whether she prefers acting or singing, she said: "I like acting, music is so personal."
"It takes so much more out of you, like with acting, you're like escaping it to be another character."
She went on to say: "I love playing like a character that people want to hate but they end up liking, you know."
And many viewers were quick to pick up on the comments from the mother-of-two.
"The way Jamie Lynn said ‘I love playing a character that people want to hate but end up loving’ if that’s a hint, then you got it wrong honey." one person said.
While another agreed: "Why do i feel like jamie lynn saying 'i love playing a character people hate at first then realise they like' is foreshadowing."
"Jamie Lynn saying she likes to be the bad character that everyone ends up liking … nice try," a third added.
Jamie-Lynn and Britney have a complicated relationship following the termination of the 'Toxic' singer's conservatorship in 2021.
Since then, the siblings have both written memoirs - with Jamie Lynn's biography, Things I Should Have Said, being released in 2022 and Britney's The Woman in Me coming out this year.
In her memoir, Britney talked about Jamie Lynn's response to her asking for help when at a rehab facility.
According to Spears, her sister simply told her: "Stop fighting it. There's nothing you can do about it, so stop fighting it."
Spears, who clearly felt let down by her sibling, penned: "I didn't understand how Jamie Lynn and our father had developed such a good relationship.
"She knew I was reaching out to her for help... I felt like she should have taken my side."
