Noel didn’t quit Bake Off. However, he was missing from 2020’s Christmas special. But this was because he was on paternity leave after his partner Lliana gave birth to their second child.
But Sandi did decide to leave Bake Off last year, and Little Britain comedian Matt Lucas replaced her.

Yes, Noel is a man of many talents and this includes painting. He has exhibited and sold his paintings for the likes of Saatchi Art and Don’t Walk Away Gallery.
In fact, there are pieces of art by Noel that are currently available to buy for £12,000 and above.
Back in 2007, he revealed his anxieties about exhibitioning his art above a London patisserie.
Speaking to The Independent, he said: “I know people want me to have an exhibition because they like the Boosh, but I decided it should in somewhere small, so the pressure wouldn’t be so massive.
“I was thinking, maybe I should have done it anonymously. I was thinking of calling myself the Jelly Fox, and having some sort of armour on so no one would know who I was.”

The episode will then be available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
