Celebrity Big Brother's Gary Goldsmith gives response when asked where niece Kate Middleton is

Celebrity Big Brother's Gary Goldsmith gives response when asked where niece Kate Middleton is

The Princess of Wales' uncle is in the CBB house.

Gary Goldsmith, the uncle to Kate Middleton, has got the Royal Family's PR team on tenterhooks after entering the Celebrity Big Brother house as the show makes its ITV debut.

And he's already commented on the potential whereabouts of the future Queen.

The 58-year-old millionaire has entered CBB alongside the likes of Sharon Osbourne, Louis Walsh, Coronation Street's Colson Smith, and Love Island winner Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu.

It is the first time the celebrity version of the show has appeared on the network, with it last broadcast on Channel 5 some six years ago.

Goldsmith was reportedly 'read the riot act' by his sister and the Princess of Wales' mum, Carole Middleton, before entering the house so as to make sure he was on his best behaviour.

But before even entering the house he was throwing bombs, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle a topic of conversation.

On last night's (4 March) CBB debut on ITV, he told presenters Will Best and AJ Odudu that the couple 'threw their family under the bus'.

He said it 'just seemed inappropriate, especially what was happening with the Queen... I just thought it was totally unnecessary'.

Goldsmith was outright asked by presenter Will Best where his niece would be watching from.

It comes just days after her representatives were forced to issue a statement following a bombardment of speculation on social media.

Middleton hadn't been seen in public since January, with her releasing a statement in early 2024 to say she was undergoing abdominal surgery before recovering from this in private.

The new statement said: "Kensington Palace made it clear in January the timelines of the Princess’ recovery and we’d only be providing significant updates. That guidance stands."

Yesterday (4 March), the Princess of Wales was photographed for the first time since her surgery, driving with her mother near Windsor Castle in pictures published by TMZ.

When asked where his niece would be watching him from, Goldsmith answered somewhat politically by simply laughing it off and saying 'from behind a sofa'.

The full line-up of Celebrity Big Brother includes Heartstopper star Bradley Riches, Strictly Come Dancing's Nikita Kuzmin, Colson Smith, Louis Walsh, Real Housewives of Cheshire icon Lauren Simon, Ekin-Su, Marisha Wallace, Fern Britton, Zeze Millz, David Potts, and Goldsmith.

Osbourne is in the house but only as a part-time 'lodger'. She'll leave the house after a limited amount of time and isn't a fully fledged contestant.

She was the first contestant to enter the house followed by former X Factor colleague Walsh, with the two of them tasked with putting three housemates at risk of eviction.

The three they chose were David, Zeze and Gary.
