Reality star Simon Gross will appear on ITV's Judge Rinder this week to defend his charity single
Beckenham reality TV star Simon Gross will appear on trial later this week...for creating the worst Christmas song ever.
Gross, known as Mr Showbiz, filmed the video for his seasonal single Showbiz Christmas at a Tesco superstore in Bromley back in October with members of the public, but the track has received scathing reviews since its release.
Now he is set to appear on ITV’s popular daytime show Judge Rinder, where he will defend his single against the critical judge.
Gross, 46, said: “All the campaigning is going well, and the track was actually voted number one in a dance chart in Europe.
“It’s taken a while to get off the ground but it’s slowly getting out there and hopefully people will respond well to it.
“The criticism was a little hurtful and deflating at first but I think it’s quite funny, really, and kind of expected it to be honest.
“I didn’t expect it to be the next Shakin’ Stevens or Mariah Carey.
“It’s very camp, very in your face, but it’s just a bit of fun for charity and there’s nothing wrong with that.”
A former Butlins redcoat, Gross shot to fame after notoriously being evicted from the Big Brother house after just two hours earlier in the year.
He will appear on Judge Rinder as part of a special episode in association with the Text Santa charity initiative on Friday December 18 at 2pm.
The single will help raise money for homeless charity Centrepoint and is available to download now from iTunes.
