A man in his 40s has been arrested on suspicion of gross negligence manslaughter in connection with the death of Gogglebox star George Gilbey.

Essex Police say the 40-year-old is thought to have died after a fall at work.

Gilbey appeared on the Channel 4 series alongside his mother Linda McGarry and stepfather Pete McGarry, who died in 2021 aged 71.

The reality star also appeared on the 14th series of Celebrity Big Brother in 2014, reaching the final.

An Essex Police spokesperson said: “As part of our ongoing investigation into the death of a man in Campfield Road, Shoebury, we have arrested a man in their 40s from the Witham area on suspicion of gross negligence manslaughter.

“This is a joint investigation with the Health and Safety Executive and our inquiries are ongoing.”

Essex Police previously said they were called to an incident in Shoebury, Southend-on-Sea at around 10am on Wednesday.

A spokesperson for the force said yesterday that “a man who was working at height had fallen and sustained an injury”.

“The ambulance service including air ambulance were in attendance. Sadly, the man died at the scene.”

Gilbey, from Essex, joined Gogglebox in its second series in 2013 before he and his family were dropped the following year when he signed up for Celebrity Big Brother. The family later returned to the series.

“Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with Linda and George’s family and friends at this very sad time. The family has asked for privacy.”

Gilbey appeared on the Channel 5 version of Celebrity Big Brother alongside other famous faces including The Hills star Stephanie Pratt and American actor Gary Busey, who won the series.
