Gary Goldsmith, the Princess of Wales’ controversial uncle, has signed up for 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

Gary - the younger brother of Duchess Catherine's mother Carole Middleton - has reportedly signed a deal with ITV to appear on the show.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Gary is champing at the bit to get on 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

“He finalised the terms of his deal today and can’t wait to enter the house.”

Gary was reportedly in talks for 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' last year but bosses rejected him amid fears he could embarrass Catherine and her husband Prince William.

However, ITV have changed their minds and are now excited to feature Gary on 'CBB'.

The source said: "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.

“He’s made it clear he will talk about everything and anything, and he’s pretty outspoken when it comes to Harry and Meghan, [The Duke and Duchess of Sussex].

"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.”

'Dragon’s Den' star Levi Roots and TV judge Louis Walsh are also in talks to take part.
