There’s no doubt that Noel Edmonds is one of the UK’s best loved TV presenters with many classic shows, like Deal Or No Deal and Noel’s House Party under his belt.
The eccentric star, 69, has been a staple on British television during a career spanning almost 50 years and counting.
And now he’s set to join the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2018 line-up as its 11th secret campmate – where bosses hope he can go all the way to the end.
Noel is sure to be a fascinating campmate to watch, given his highly controversial opinions about a multitude of subjects.
Over the years, Noel has given his opinion on varied topics, including cosmic ordering, energy orbs and the necessity of paying a TV licence.
In 2006, he released his book Positively Happy: Cosmic Ways To Change Your Life.
He explained: “If you create opportunities, luck will follow. When I first started in radio, I had a dream of owning a helicopter and racing powerboats.
“Now I do both: an eloquent and heart-warming example of faith repaid.
“The cosmos always requires action on your part, so you have to let go of your negative labels.”
In a 2008 interview with the Daily Express, Noel revealed that two melon-sized orbs, which he believes are his late parents, visit him.
He explained: "They’re both the size of a melon and one sits on my arm and the other is over my shoulder.
“I like to think they’re my parents. Conventional photography can’t pick them up but digital cameras can.
“My belief is that these are something to do with some form of spiritual energy. And possibly because I miss my parents like mad, I like to think they are them."
Noel, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2013, which he believes was brought on by stress.
He explained: “It is a scientific fact that negative energy causes disease and negative thoughts are part of that process. “It changes the outcome and millions of doctors and scientists will tell you that.”
The star went on to advocate for people using an EMPPad, which is a machine that stimulates “cellular resonance”.
Or in Noel’s words, the machine is “a simple box that slows ageing, reduces pain, lifts depression and stress and tackles cancer.”
Noel’s decision to ask a cancer patient on Twitter if their ill health had been caused by their ‘negative attitude’ landed him an interview on This Morning, in which he clashed with host Phillip Schofield.
Following his appearance on the show, Noel went on to accuse presenters Phillip and Holly Willoughby of being “aggressive, disrespectful and dishonest”.
He said: “Phil, if you are unlucky enough to be seriously ill, I promise I wont be so callous and I will show you respect, sympathy and compassion.”
Back in 2011, Noel’s third wife Liz suggested they buy a mannequin to put in the back of his cab that he would drive to Bristol everyday for Deal Or No Deal filming.
The mannequin, named Candice, was bought to prevent people trying to flag Noel down in his taxi for a lift, but bizarrely became part of the family.
“We really didn’t expect things would take off like this,” Noel said of Candice in 2013.
“We know she’s not real. The majority of people who follow her on Twitter know she’s not real. But she seems to have touched a chord because she’s funny.”
Meanwhile, Noel is no stranger to fighting for what is right, taking on the might of the BBC in 2008 by refusing to pay for his TV licence.
The former BBC employee reasoned that he did not like the way the broadcaster had resorted to what he called “threatening” advertising, warning people that they would be found out if they were not paying for a licence.
Noel explained: “When I was there it promoted the licence fee by saying how wonderful it was. But now Auntie’s put boxing gloves on.
“I am not going to have the BBC or any other organisation threatening me. I’ve cancelled my TV licence and they haven’t found me. Nobody’s coming knocking on my door.
“There are too many organisations that seem to think it is OK to badger, hector and threaten people.”
