Who is Noel Edmonds?

Noel Edmonds is best known for hosting Deal or No Deal.

He has also previously presented Multi-Coloured Swap Shop, Telly Addicts and Top of The Pops.

He is 69 years old, born on December 22, 1948.

Now that his place on I’m A Celeb is confirmed, he has confessed that his biggest phobia is heights and confined spaces.


He said: “After everything I have done with Gotchas and gunging, I am well aware they are going to put me through absolute hell and I deserve it!

“I think the British public will enjoy seeing me finally getting my comeuppance! I just know they are going to really give me a hard time.”

Edmonds already thinks he can win, adding: “I am going to win because I promise the British public if they vote for me, I will retire from television and I will never appear again.

“There’s a deal that I am striking with the great British public who have supported me over the years – they make me ‘King of the Jungle’ and I will retire and never appear again!”

Reflecting on the fact he will joining his campmates late, Edmonds said: “It’s going to feel a bit like turning up to a party a few hours after it’s started but not even being able to bring a bottle!”


Edmonds was inspired to do the show thanks to hosting Declan Donnelly and his 15-year-old son Harrison.

He explained: “It actually started as I was filming with Dec earlier in the year and he said ‘Ah you should do the Jungle’.

“Our 15-year-old son, Harrison, was there at the time and he said ‘it will be brilliant; you have got to do the Jungle’.

“He put me under considerable pressure. The reason why I’m going to have this amazing experience is down to Harrison.

“I just love the idea that I’m going to live out in the natural environment. I’m looking forward to learning more about myself and meeting people I would never normally ever spend time with.”

He also confessed he does not know how he will cope without his wife Liz.
