Noel Edmonds 'to quit TV' if he wins I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!

Wednesday 21st November 2018

Noel Edmonds has vowed to retire from television if he is crowned king of the I’m a Celebrity jungle.

The broadcaster, 69, has finally been confirmed as joining the line-up, and says he expects a “hard time” from the British public after years of “Gotchas and gunging”.

Starting out as a radio DJ, Noel made the move to TV and has been on our screens for more than 40 years.

He has presented a number of TV shows including Multi-Coloured Swap Shop, Telly Addicts, Noel’s House Party and Deal or No Deal.

Noel goes into the jungle at around 20/1 with the bookmakers (see below).

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.

“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.”

Ever the joker, it's not clear whether he's being serious or not.

Noel will be joining fellow celebs Harry Redknapp, Emily Atack, Anne Hegerty, Fleur East, John Barrowman, Kick Knowles, Rita Simons, James McVey, Malique Thompson-Dwyer and Said Khan.

Speaking of his late entry, Noel 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. It’s going to be an interesting reaction.

“How will the people who have been there for a while feel about me wandering in? 

“The helicopter they use are the helicopters I fly so I could turn up and say ‘hello I’m a celebrity, I’m going to get you out of here.”

I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! continues daily from 9pm on ITV1.
