Kate Middleton’s uncle Gary says she’s getting ‘best care in the world’

Celebrity Big Brother is back, this year’s housemates are settling in and the antics are in full swing.

Months after the reality series titan returned on ITV, the celebrity version has been resurrected in the hopes of emulating the success of the latest civilian series, which was won by Jordan Sangha in November.

The contestants include X Factor judge Louis Walsh– who has already shocked viewers with an “incredibly rude” comment, Love Island winner Ekin-Su and Kate Middleton’s uncle Gary Goldsmith, all of whom met during the launch episode on Monday night.

Sharon Osbourne is also on the show but as a “celebrity lodger”, with her own private room. The star, who joins her fellow X Factor judge Walsh, is expected to be in the series for a few days only.

Meanwhile, Walsh already seems to be causing a stir in the CBB house. He abruptly ordered Real Housewives of Cheshire star Lauren Simon to get off his bed and also locked horns with Ibiza Weekender star David Potts.

Previous versions of Celebrity Big Brother have created TV gold, from Tiffany Pollard’s iconic “David’s Dead” misunderstanding to George Galloway and Rula Lenska‘s creepy cat cosplay.

Celebrity Big Brother 2024

Gary says niece Kate Middleton is getting ‘best care in the world

21:32 , Jacob Stolworthy

Talk naturally turned to the whereabouts of Kate Middleton, who has been out of the linelight due to a mystery illness. He remains coy on the subject but assures his housemates she is getting the “best care in the world” and says she “will be back”.

Fern Britton spills the beans on This Morning

“Genuinely, I haven’t been there for 15 years – I got off the train and it’s way over the horizon now, so I honestly don’t know,” she said of recent furore behind the scenes.

She continued: “I can’t say anything. It was tricky at times. I think Ben [Shephard] and Cat [Deeley] are going to do a great job.”

When Gary said Phillip Schpofield might enter the house as a surprise contestant, she looked alarmed and told him: That didn’t happen – yet, Maybe he’s coming in as a surprise. I might have to leave at that point.”

Here’s what happened between the pair:

Gary says Prince Harry should be stripped of royal title

21:13 , Jacob Stolworthy

Fern says to Gary: “William must be furious that he has the weight of the world on his shoulders when he could have shared it.” Gary agrees, and says he “thinks he’s done an amazing job” in a “horrible situation”, and “desperately feels” William has extended several olive branches to Harry.

“I genuinely think they should take the titles away,” he said of Harry and Meghan.

Elsewhere, when Fern says she has money on David Cameron becoming the next Tory leader, Garysays he’s “heard” that might be a thing, revealing that he’s not a fan of Rishi Sunak.

He also likes Trump, so there’s that.

Louis remembers his time on The X Factor

21:11 , Jacob Stolworthy

Louis says he “didn’t always get along with Cheryl” when he worked with her on The X Factor.

He also tells Marisha and Ekin-Su he worked for two days with Britney Spears on the US version of the show, saying: “She was there, but she wasn’t relaly there. She had earplugs in.”

Sharon struck a great deal with Big Brother producers

21:06 , Jacob Stolworthy

Not only does she have her own room away from the other housemates, but she gets to lie in for, seemingly, as long as she wants. Whatever you think of her, that’s pretty legendary.

A clip showing Louis Walsh touching Mel B inappropriately on live television has resurfaced online.

ITV has been accused of “hypocrisy” after the broadcaster launched its latest Loose Women campaign for domestic violence.

The initiative, called Facing It Together, featured eight of the show’s panelists in a photoshoot and short film with the tag line: “Whether you are a survivor or a friend, we are facing it together.”

But the channel has been facing growing backlash after Kate Middleton’s uncle, Gary Goldsmith, entered the Celebrity Big Brother house on Monday (5 March).

The Duchess of Cambridge’s uncle was fined £5,000 and given a community order after admitting to assaulting his wife in a drunken argument in which she accused him of taking drugs.

Sharon tells David:“When I first met you and I saw you with no trousers on, I was quite shocked. And then when we got talking, I realised it’s your thing. Not that I’m a prude because I’m not. What did you feel like when you found out you were in the ring of fire?”

David replies: “I wasn’t shocked at all because I’ve had this quite a lot in my life. On first impressions, people are a bit like ‘woo, he’s just dying for attention’ when that is just not the case.”

Celebrity Big Brother viewers call out Louis Walsh for ‘incredibly rude’ comment

13:00 , Jacob Stolworthy

Celebrity Big Brother viewers are predicting Louis Walsh will be the “villain” of this year’s series after a series of “rude” comments.

The music manager, whose arrival in the house has led to some controversy, is known by many as a judge on ITV talent show The X Factor. Joining him on the reality series are stars including Fern Britton, Kate Middleton’s uncle Gary Goldsmith and his one-time X Factor co-star Sharon Osbourne.

After entering the house, he was sent into a secret lair with Osbourne, who was tasked with “judging” which three housemates gave the worst first impressions.

Here, Walsh and Obsourne could be seen commenting on each new arrival, with Walsh in particular paying attention to people’s appearance. At one stage, he wondered if Real Housewives of Cheshire star Lauren Simon “has had a bit of work”, and said that “forgetful” Coronation Street actor Colson Smith had “big ears”.

But it’s a moment in Tuesday night’s episode (5 March) that raised eyebrows among viewers. It arrived when Walsh spotted Simon sitting on one of the few double beds in the bedroom.

Celebrity Big Brother review: Even Sharon Osbourne and a Traitors-style twist can’t revive this dead format

Tuesday 5 March 2024 17:31 , Ellie Muir

“In fairness to ITV, they’ve thrown all their creative energy into this moribund format, which, unfortunately, means that they’ve rather lazily plundered two reliable stars and part of the structure from another of their own shows,” writes Sean O’Grady. “Louis Walsh and Sharon Osborne have been enlisted to “judge” the other CBB housemates, watching them from a separate boudoir, as if they were on a voyeuristic version of The X Factor.”

The ups and downs of Kate Middleton’s playboy uncle

Tuesday 5 March 2024 15:35 , Jacob Stolworthy

The much-hyped entrance of Kate Middleton’s playboy uncle into the Big Brother house will likely be met with dread by the royal family’s already overloaded PR team.

It’s been an exhausting 12 months for “The Firm”, with everything from major health shocks such as King Charles’s cancer diagnosis to severe embarrassment caused by Prince Andrew’s much-publicised friendship with late paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

So Gary Goldsmith’s entrance into the CBB house on Monday will only induce shudders from those in Buckingham Palace who fear he will create more unwanted headlines.

Here we take a look at the ups and downs of the Princess of Wales’s “black sheep” uncle Gary Goldsmith:

Fern Britton’s rivalry with Phillip Schofield

Tuesday 5 March 2024 14:35 , Jacob Stolworthy

Fern Britton presented This Morning from 1999 to 2009 alongside Phillip Schofield, who dramatically quit the series in May 2023 after admitting to lying about an affair with a younger male colleague.

During their working relationship, Britton clashed with Schofield, with the latter revealing in his 2012 memoir Life is What You Make It that Britton once accused him of “meddling” with the daytime show’s content, forcing him to “calmly” tell her: “Please don’t do that to me again.”

When Britton quit the show, being replaced by Holly Willoughby, she released a statement addressing the show’s team in general – but did not specifically name Schofield.

Schofield also claimed in his book that their previous row “was the point she decided she didn’t want” to be on the show any more.

In 2013, Schofield told Heat that he and Britton are “not really” in touch any more, with Britton telling MailOnline: “Like Morecambe and Wise, we chose not to live in each other’s pockets. We were a great professional partnership but we never went on holiday together.”
