    sounds like a vent problem, you may have a cloged plumbing vent.

    The bathtub "p" trap may be connected directly to the toilet drain--- if it is, most codes don't allow this type of arrangement--check your drain connections to verify.

    When the toilet flushes the water in the tub "p" trap is being sucked out of the "p" trap, causing the gurgling.

    You may have to provide a separate connection for the tub drain to the main soil stack.
