Gary Goldsmith, Kate Middleton’s uncle, has entered the Celebrity Big Brother House and he’s shed light on life as one of her relatives.

In tonight’s episode, viewers can expect him to have a conversation with fellow contestants Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh as he says she can be “difficult to get hold of”.

Since the Princess of Wales’ planned abdominal surgery took place, the internet has gone wild with plenty of conspiracy theories as to where she is, having not been seen in public since Christmas.

She was, however, spotted as a passenger in a car with her mother Carole Middleton this week.

It was announced that the Princess of Wales would be out of action for a short while and back to royal duties after Easter.

In the episode airing tonight, Louis Walsh asks Goldsmith: “Is it difficult for you, being related to famous people?” 

Gary replies: “I didn’t vote for it, it happened to me, and then suddenly there’s a spotlight on you.”

He adds: “They call me the buncle! Have you heard of a buncle? Bad uncle, apparently every family has them.”

Louis continues the conversation by asking: “I have to ask you, have you met Meghan Markle?”
