Taking to his Instagram account, the 44-year-old posted a picture of a MailOnlie article with the headline “Celebrity Big Brother is slammed by Women’s Aid for signing convicted abuser Gary Goldsmith as they plead with bosses to ‘show an awareness of domestic violence survivors.’”

Underneath the article’s screenshot, the professional doctor inserted an eye-looking emoji. 

Women’s Aid recently condemned Celebrity Big Brother after the controversial signing of businessman Gary. 

In a statement, the charity said: “The decision to include a man who has been charged, and pleaded guilty to, assaulting his wife in the Celebrity Big Brother house demonstrates the lack of awareness that the production team has when it comes to survivors of domestic abuse.

How you can get help

Women’s Aid has this advice for victims and their families:

  • Always keep your phone nearby.
  • Get in touch with charities for help, including the Women’s Aid live chat helpline and services such as SupportLine.
  • If you are in danger, call 999.
  • Familiarise yourself with the Silent Solution, reporting abuse without speaking down the phone, instead dialing “55”.
  • Always keep some money on you, including change for a pay phone or bus fare.
  • If you suspect your partner is about to attack you, try to go to a lower-risk area of the house – for example, where there is a way out and access to a telephone.
  • Avoid the kitchen and garage, where there are likely to be knives or other weapons. Avoid rooms where you might become trapped, such as the bathroom, or where you might be shut into a cupboard or other small space.

If you are a ­victim of domestic abuse, SupportLine is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 6pm to 8pm on 01708 765200. The charity’s email support ­service is open weekdays and weekends during the crisis – messageinfo@supportline.org.uk.

Women’s Aid provides a live chat service – available weekdays from 8am-6pm and weekends 10am-6pm.

You can also call the freephone 24-hour ­National Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0808 2000 247.

‘get him out’ demand CBB fans as Kate Middleton’s uncle Gary reveals he’s a fan of controversial politician

“The producers should consider how Gary Goldsmith’s appearance will impact women who have survived domestic abuse and how they will feel watching him on TV every night.  

“At Women’s Aid, we would urge the producers to consider how they approach this.

“As for many survivors of abuse, the inclusion of men convicted of abuse in entertainment programmes will already be a sign that these crimes are not taken seriously – the entertainment industry has to consider the impact on women of who they give a platform to and derive entertainment value from.” 

Simultaneously, CBB fans were also left demanding that Gary be eliminated from the house after he revealed his love for controversial politician Donald Trump.
