We know Noel Edmonds isn’t exactly a fan of This Morning – and thanks to an appearance from the TV star’s oldest pal on Monday’s show – relations are looking frostier than ever.
In a segment about how controversial Noel is faring on the new series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! presenter Phil Schofield introduced the person who “knows him better than anyone, his closest friend” – none other than Mr Blobby!

The character – who starred on nineties favourite, Noel’s House Party alongside the 69-year-old – caused havoc as he stormed the set.
Mr Blobby crashed through the doors, deliberately knocking a fruit bowl on the floor, before kicking chairs out of his way as he lumbered across the set.
Reaching the sofa, he hugged presenter Rochelle Humes and patted Phil, 56, on the head, before falling over and then climbing over the sofa.
“There goes half the set,” Rochelle commented before they both fell apart laughing. Phil added: “I can only apologise.”
Fans were in hysterics, commenting: “I can’t stop laughing!! I can’t believe I didn’t get to meet Mr Blobby. I used to love this guy.”
Another added: “He is just absolutely brilliant we need him back on our screens night times just [bleeping] about.”
A third was disappointed there wasn’t more Mr Blobby, writing: “I was only watching #ThisMorning because I wanted to watch a Mr Blobby interview. I’m very disappointed. I want a full segment of Phil trying to ask Blobby serious questions about the news whilst Blobby absolutely [bleeps] up the set.”
Others demanded a reunion when Noel emerges from the jungle, tweeting: “We need Mr Blobby to greet Noel Edmonds when he comes out of the jungle, that would be tv in the making. #Mrbloobyendofthebridge 😂.”
One more begged: “Send him to the Jungle to surprise Noel!”
Some were less than pleased at his return to TV, tweeting: “Frankly Mr Blobby is getting too much airtime. Can’t he go and join Mr N Edmonds in Australia?”
Another added: “Why is Mr Blobby suddenly everywhere!!! He is actually terrifying please leave.”
It follows a long-running feud with Noel and Phil, after a 2016 interview where the Deal Or No Deal host slammed This Morning’s presenters, Holly and Phil as “aggressive, disrespectful and dishonest”.
Viewers wondered whether Noel would clash with Holly when she signed up to cover Ant McPartlin on the show.
The pair have yet to mention the previous clash, but viewers have picked up on some tension.
Noel was accused of “snapping” and “yelling” at Holly, 37, during trials.
