A divisive character, it’s no surprise that – while many viewers obviously wanted him out – there were plenty of others who really, really wanted him to stay.

He added plenty of humour as well as a much-needed sprinkling of tension in camp, they argue.

Some have suggested they would like him to come back… as Dec’s co-host!

There’s no denying the obvious respect that Dec has for Noel… he was obviously a huge inspiration to him growing up.

He’s the granddaddy of irreverent Saturday morning kids’ TV and chaotic Saturday teatime entertainment shows, after all!

Given that Holly Willoughby has proven such a success covering for Ant McPartlin, though, we aren’t sure there’s any chance of this happening.
