I’m A Celebrity fans baffled by Noel Edmonds’ toilet comments

He used his powers as emperor to ban toilet chat

| Updated:

We knew he was going to be a controversial addition to the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! jungle, but we didn’t know he’d start offending people so early.

Noel Edmonds managed to upset viewers on Friday night’s episode with his bizarre ideas about women.

The disapproving Deal or No Deal host banned his female campmates talking about their toilet habits, declaring: “I can’t have that conversation with a lady.”

It started when Hollyoaks star Malique Thompson-Dwyer admitted: “I feel like I need a poo now after eating that food.”

Noel, 69, looked disgusted, saying: “Mal, Mal, we don’t need to talk about bodily functions.”

Actress Rita Simons ignored him, offering Malique some advice on what might help and adding: “I can’t poo in this jungle at all.”

Headed to the Bush Telegraph, Noel said: “Rita has such an appetite for bringing bodily functions into almost every corner of her conversations.

“I was brought up to believe ladies don’t go to the loo. They certainly don’t do number twos.”

He then officially banned toilet talk from the female contestants, saying: “I cannot, I cannot, I can’t have that conversation with a lady. I can’t, I’m not.”

Back in the studio, presenter Holly Willoughby looked a bit confused, saying: “Shall we talk about Noel’s views on toilet habits?”

Her co-star Dec Donnelly joked: “I’d give it five minutes and maybe light a candle.”

Some found it amusing, writing: “LAUGHING SO MUCH AT THE FACT THAT NOEL EDMONDS WAS TAUGHT TO BELIEVE THAT LADIES DON’T GO TO THE TOILET.”

Another scolded: “#NoelEdmonds – ‘I was brought up to believe ladies didn’t go to the toilet’… 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️😂😂 #wtf #everybodyhastopoo #Imaceleb.”

Many more disliked his comments, tweeting: “If you haven’t been watching I’m a Celeb the only thing you’ve really missed is Noel Edmond being sexist.”

A second wrote: “*put on tv. Lands on random channel* Sees Noel Edmonds talking about how he hates talking about women going to the toilet. That’s enough #imaceleb2018 for this year.”

A third added: “Disappointed with #NoelEdmonds on #ImACeleb I thought he’d be a good laugh.”

Others protested his ban, commenting: “I LOVE POO TALK, NOEL EDMONDS!!! #ImACeleb.”

Still more complained he wasn’t a great addition to the show, tweeting: “Already stopped watching #imaceleb because I cannot stand Noel Edmonds.”
