He came, he saw, he conquered (kind of), and Noel Edmonds won himself plenty of new fans during his time in the I’m A Celebrity jungle.

His forceful character did ruffle a few people’s feathers, however, notably Nick Knowles within the camp.

And some viewers claim to have picked up on some tension between him and show presenter Holly Willoughby.

They wrote on Twitter…

There is a backstory here… in 2016 Noel branded her and This Morning co-host Phillip Schofield as “aggressive, disrespectful and dishonest” after an uncomfortable exchange on the show.

The former Saturday night TV fave argued his belief that cancer is caused by negative energy, which the hosts challenged him on.

Today there are reports that, two years on, this incident has soured relations between the pair, evidenced by their interactions on I’m A Celeb.

A source for The Sun claims: “It’s no secret she didn’t seem to like him and he didn’t seem to like her.

“There’s no suggestion either of them was unprofessional — they just don’t get on.”

However, Noel’s spokesperson has played down the suggestion of a feud, stating he thinks highly of Holly’s work.

They said: “Yes, there was that incident on This Morning but Noel has a huge amount of respect for Holly and thinks she’s a great broadcaster and is doing a great job.”

Noel, 69, became the first celeb booted off the show on Friday night.
