Noel Edmonds has confirmed he will retire from TV if he is to win I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
The Deal or No Deal host was brought in as a late entry to the Jungle and quickly made headlines as the show’s highest ever paid contestant.
It was reported by several outlets, including The Sun, that Edmonds was going to pocket a potential £600,000 for his outback appearance.
Compared to other contestants reportedly earning around £15,000, the show drew criticism for unfairly paying the contestants.
However, there is no doubting that with 50 years of broadcasting behind that now-greying beard there will be plenty of viewers tuning in to see Noel eat a testicle or two.
Latest odds from William Hill have him at 14/1 while former Inbetweeners actress Emily Atack is the favourite to win it.
In an interview Noel told ITV, ‘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.’
