Following Noel Edmonds’ shock eviction from ‘I’m A Celebrity’, he looks set to continue his TV comeback – and would like to front a new show alongside Harry Redknapp.
The 69-year-old TV presenter has admitted that following his shock eviction from ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here’ he will continue his TV comeback – and would love to appear in a new show alongside his jungle pal, 71-year-old Harry, as he thinks viewers would respond well to it.
“I think it is OK to say there have been a couple of ideas put forward for a Noel and Harry show.
“But my boy is still in there so we will have to wait for him to come out.
“We did have a laugh and I think judging by what I have heard it went down well with the viewers.”
The former ‘Noel’s House Party’ host had previously stated that if he won the jungle reality show he would retire from TV, but he’s now insisting a comeback is definitely on the cards.
“I’m sorry, you knew the deal. The public broke the deal. The threat [of a comeback] is there. There are offers coming in, but it is early days.”
Noel explained that the pair had formed a genuine bond while on the show and thinks that he helped the sports star to become less “miserable” and laugh more.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, he added:
“Harry said a wonderful thing. He said, ‘I didn’t laugh when I was a full-time football manager.’
“He said the stress and the strain and how quickly you are exposed to people hating you impacted on him and he couldn’t sleep.
“Then he said, ‘I became a miserable b*****d. I have not laughed this much until I met you.’
“We had such a laugh it was great. I think sometimes the others were a bit nonplussed why we were laughing.”
