Kate Middleton’s uncle Gary Goldsmith is “shockingly misguided” to sign up for Celebrity Big Brother, according to Royal expert Jennie Bond.

She told GB News: “He's very misguided to do so. He is either mad or bad, or as I say, shockingly misguided. I think it is the latter.

“Gary Goldsmith himself says he's not a bad guy. He's got a good heart and he's very fond of his niece, the princess. But this is just - it's so demeaning. It is so tacky, it’s so tasteless of him to do this.”

The former BBC royal correspondent continued: “It's the last thing that William and Catherine would want, whatever he said. And I know, I've been in a reality shows, I was in I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

“I was in that jungle for nearly three weeks and I know, even as a professional broadcaster, there are moments when you forget just a little bit that the cameras are rolling, and then whatever you say can go out to millions of people. He has got to be absolutely on his guard and I rather doubt he'll be able to do that.”

In a discussion with Martin Daubney, she added: “They want him to sing like a canary I suppose. But I don't think he's going to do that. I just think there might be moments when his judgement lapses. Well, I think he's had a big lapse of judgement in even going in the house.

“I cannot see that any good is going to come out of it. He's clearly fallen out with his sister Carol Middleton over this. I think the whole family is furious with him and why is he doing it?

“The man is a millionaire. He has everything he wants, one assumes, in life. Is he craving some kind of celebrity? This is Celebrity Big Brother.

“His only claim to fame is the fact that his niece is a future queen and that's quite a claim, I have to say, but does that make him a celebrity?”
