CBB’s Gary Goldsmith ‘eyeing up another big TV show’ which could be a ‘great move’ for him

Following his premature exit from the Celebrity Big Brother house, Gary Goldsmith is reportedly eyeing up an appearance on another hit TV show. The 58-year-old was the first to be evicted from the ITV show and is now said to be hoping to bag a role on Dragons’ Den.

A source told The Sun: “Gary has a number of successful businesses and he wants to use his new platform to help others. He has mooted the idea of becoming one of the Dragons and thinks it could be a great move for him.

“Gary is an astute businessman and the idea of helping out new entrepreneurs is something he’s keen to dabble in. His time on Celebrity Big Brother showed a different side of Gary. He’s a normal guy who has done well for himself and he wants to try and give something back.

“Gary has his Pints of View podcast where he talks about business but he thinks being on Dragons’ Den could be a bigger platform for him,” the source concluded to the publication. Express.co.uk has contacted Gary’s representative for comment.

The hit BBC show currently stars Peter Jones, Deborah Meaden, Sara Davies, Touker Suleyman and Steven Bartlett as the Dragons dishing out investments to hopefuls.

It has also featured guests, with recent ones including former football ace Gary Neville and Emma Grede, the CEO of denim company Good American.

Despite being known in the public eye as Kate Middleton’s uncle, Gary runs several businesses and hosts his podcast Pints Of View.

Gary found himself up for eviction after Sharon Osbourne was tasked with choosing a housemate to face the public vote.

After going head-to-head with Real Housewives of Cheshire star Lauren Simon, the public chose to evict Gary after he received the lowest amount of votes.

He was met with cheers following his exit as hosts AJ Odudu and Will Best whisked him off for a post-show interview on Late and Live.

Speaking following his eviction, the ITV star said: “That was the first TV programme that I have ever done, and it’s kind of big, this is the relaunch of CBB, it’s massive.

“The guys were way more comfortable in that surrounding, my comfort zone was back in Slough, and then coming on to something like this was a million miles away – it took me a while to acclimatise for the first 90 minutes of being there.”
