The Princess of Wales's uncle entered the Celebrity Big Brother house last night

Princess Kate's uncle Gary Goldsmith has been compared to fellow royal Mike Tindall, after making his reality TV debut.

Goldsmith entered the Celebrity Big Brother house on Monday night after joining the reboot on ITV.

The reality show made its return after coming off air in 2018 as Goldsmith was joined by the likes of showbiz veterans Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh.

Making his entrance on the show, the uncle of Princess Kate sung her praises, saying she is "simply perfect".

He also shed light on the Princess's recent abdominal surgery and revealed she is recovering in a "nice house somewhere".

Speaking to GB News, Royal Correspondent Cameron Walker branded the appearance "cringeworthy" and any revelations he may make whilst on the show will add "fuel to the fire".

Discussing Goldsmith's Celebrity Big Brother debut, royal author Robert Jobson said he's a "grown man" and "doesn't answer to his niece", the Princess of Wales.

GB News host Emily Carver said the TV appearance was "not classy" and "very undignified".

Comparing Goldsmith to Princess Anne's son-in-law Mike Tindall's recent appearance on ITV's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, Jobson asked: "Is it any different to Mike Tindall going into the jungle? I don't really think it is."

Emily was in disagreement, arguing: "Well, it is a bit - the Princess of Wales can't say anything to the media.

"So if he does say something that affects the Royal Family or affects her relationships, then she can't really say much or do anything really can she? It puts her in a difficult position."

Jobson responded: "If he does and that happens, I'm sure that somehow they'll get that story out themselves. The Royal Family aren't backwards, they're coming forwards when it comes to making their position clear."

Jobson also defended Goldsmith's decision to appear on the show and stated that if he was "offered a load of money to do it", it is "his decision to make" going on the show.

Jobson added: "I don't think he's done anything particularly wrong. It's not classy. He said Kate would be watching from behind the sofa, probably that is the case.

"But is he really doing anything wrong? I don't think he is. Mike Tindall was invited to the jungle because he was the the son-in-law of of the Princess Anne, not because of his rugby playing about 20 years ago when he won the World Cup.

"At the end of the day, they obviously want viewing figures, like we all do."
