Noel Edmonds reportedly wants to start a YouTube fitness channel to become a “Joe Wicks for the over-40s”.
The 69-year-old TV presenter is said to have been inundated with work offers since he was axed from I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! last week. Noel is thought to be considering a book deal and online video channel to follow in the footsteps of The Body Coach, but for an older audience.
A source has claimed that negotiations are “already taking place”.
Should the channel or book materialise, Noel and his wife Liz, 49, would give fitness and lifestyle tips, as well as recipes to fans.
It is thought the channel could get off the ground by the spring, and Noel looks set for a busy 2019 as his former show Noel’s Christmas Presents – which aired from 1986 to 1999 on BBC One, and then on Sky 1 from 2007 to 2012 – is in line for a comeback.
The insider told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “This show was always popular. One way or another it is very much looking like Noel will be back on TV next year.”
ED! has contacted representatives for Noel for comment.
What’s more, Noel is keen to team up with his former fellow campmate Harry Redknapp when the former Tottenham manager leaves the jungle, after the pair struck up a great friendship Down Under.
He recently told the Mirror: “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.”
While he may be best buddies with Harry, it seems Noel and Nick Knowles had a bit of a jungle bust up over evolution!
Former campmate Malique Thompson-Dwyer told The Sun newspaper: “They were having these big disputes. They debated evolution, and Nick said we had all evolved from monkeys and I don’t think Noel believes it.”
Noel also admitted as he exited the jungle that he didn’t like it when Nick took on the leadership role.
He said: “I do sometimes have a problem with rules and regulations. There was no needle, maybe just a little [bleep].
“I do think there was a moment when Nick looked at me like, die.”
