Noel Edmonds: I have no beef with Holly Willoughby
I’M A Celebrity’s NOEL EDMONDS has denied that he has been feuding with the show’s host Holly Willoughby.
The veteran presenter, who got the boot after just nine days in the jungle, is said to have been at odds with Holly ever since an interview on This Morning in 2016.
Noel told Good Morning Britain: ‘I respect Holly as a broadcaster… We had a spat on This Morning.’
But yesterday he said he saw Holly and they had buried the hatchet: ‘We hugged. There is no feud.’
The disagreement, which Noel described as a ‘silly production squabble’, was said to have been over his views on the causes of cancer.
Noel, who suffered from prostate cancer, said his views about negative energy had been misunderstood and added: ‘I would love to have the opportunity to go on This Morning again and properly talk about this subject of the human body energy system.’
Noel also admitted he was ‘disappointed’ to get voted off the reality show so soon because he hadn’t ‘got into my stride’.
Of being the first to leave the Australian jungle, he said: ‘I was initially very surprised and then the next emotion was great disappointment.
‘I felt very sad because I went in there to be honest and open and give it my best shot, and in that sense it felt like I went too soon.
‘I was voted out. I’m disappointed about that. But this has been a lifetime experience for me. I will be eternally grateful.’
He said: ‘I was really surprised and a little bit upset but I’ve got over it.’
His wife Liz Davies seemed pleased to have him back, at least, joking: ‘We’re back together, having to really, really put up with a five-star hotel, 30C today, we’re right by the edge of the pool. It’s tough.’
Meanwhile, John Barrowman is now back in the jungle after suffering a sprained ankle.
The star was exempt from Sunday’s public vote after being taken to hospital for treatment.
Hollyoaks star Malique Thompson-Dwyer became the second contestant to leave the show.
