Catherine, Princess of Wales's uncle, Gary Goldsmith, is set to join Celebrity Big Brother, in what is being labeled the reality show's "most controversial signing ever."

"He is one of those relatives who needs a lot of attention and wants to get some money," royal expert Angela Levin dished.

Gary Goldsmith has been labeled the 'black sheep' of the Middleton family.

"Even though I believe he is a millionaire, he would like to make money out of it, and I think that's a shame," she added. "The thing is, he probably thinks he can control whatever he says and become famous. But in actual fact, with the cameras running all the time, you can easily slip and say something completely inappropriate."

Levin continued: "It will get people watching. I think it's the wrong thing to do, particularly at the wrong time. He should have said, look, I'm sorry, I don't want any questions about my niece, and I won't be coming on the show."

Palace courtiers are concerned that Gary Goldsmith will embarrass the Prince and Princess of Wales.

Whereas some analysts see Goldsmith's joining the show as controversial, others point out how network executives are excited about him.

"The CBB team love him because of his link to Kate and the fact that he’s confident and loud and won’t hold back," a source spilled. He’s made it clear he will talk about everything and anything, and he’s pretty outspoken when it comes to Harry and Meghan.

They continued: "Gary also holds a deep affection for Kate and Wills and will be able to give a fascinating insight into what it’s really like being related to the future King and Queen. He could be TV gold and ITV knows it. The deal he signed is for good money."

Kate, Princess of Wales, has not been seen in public since Christmas Day 2023.

"When you have people going off-piste, which is exactly what Harry and Meghan have done, and we see all the destruction that has caused," Cohen added. "He appears not to be supportive of Harry and Meghan, and I think there’s a danger in that."

"I think it's cringe-making, very embarrassing, the trouble is he doesn't like Harry and Meghan at all, some of these comments will fall onto Catherine and she's had a lot against her, she's not well, she's in hospital," Levin added.

She continued: "I think when you come out of an operation, you're quite vulnerable, and this could upset her enormously. In principle, people who don't like her could say she encouraged him to do it, but she would have done nothing of the kind. It's very embarrassing."

Sources close to the new season of the series — which is already being hyped as "unforgettable" — say that if Goldsmith inks the contract, he could appear alongside Sharon Osbourne and disgraced TV host, Philipp Schofield.
