Celebrity Big Brother will say goodbye to its first housemate on Friday night when viewers vote for the first evictions.

Gary Goldsmith, 58, is the uncle of Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales. He says the royal family nicknamed him "Buncle", adding: "Have you heard of a buncle? 'Bad uncle', apparently every family has them.”

Sharon Osbourne chose to nominate Goldsmith using her killer nomination on the launch night, after observing him in the house and claiming he appeared to be "out of his depth". She originally nominated Goldsmith, reality star David Potts and TV presenter Zeze Millz. Then after a round of three interviews, Osbourne decided Kate Middleton's uncle should automatically face another housemate in the live eviction this week.

Lauren Simon

Lauren Simon, 51, made her claim fame starring in ITVBe reality television series The Real Housewives of Cheshire which launched in 2015. She formerly worked in PR before marrying property developer Paul Simon in 2003 and becoming a wealthy housewife and mother of two daughters. She split from her husband in 2018 and still stars in The Real Housewives of Cheshire. She has also taken part in First Dates and Celebrity Dinner Dates.

Simon was put up for eviction after receiving the most nominations from her fellow housemates. She received six nominations, just one more than TV presenter Zeze Millz.

Simon received nominations from Bradley Riches, Colson Smith, Goldsmith, Marisha Wallace, Nikita Kuzmin and Millz. She has rubbed some housemates up the wrong way, including by disagreeing with Millz about how to cut an orange.
