Noel Edmonds has a reputation for being something of a ladies’ man – and he’s even nicknamed his penis ‘Mr Happy and the twins’ in homage to the amount of action he’s got over the years.
But the former Casanova has reformed over the last few years, having settled down with his Deal Or No Deal makeup artist Liz Davies and making her his third wife.
Now he’s heading for the I’m A Celebrity jungle, Noel admits this will be the longest time he and Liz have ever spent apart .

He and Liz met on the set of his Channel 4 game show in 2006, and for Noel it was love at first sight.
"To start with it was all very professional, but there was a look in both our eyes," he’s previously admitted.
Liz was married at the time and had two young children with her first husband Nathan Ridler – but Noel wooed her with a string of lavish dates, including on holidays abroad.
They moved in to adjacent villas in a Bristol hotel while DOND was being filmed, then made their relationship official by getting married in July 2009 – despite her being 20 years younger than him.

Liz has supported Noel through the axing of DOND in 2016, and his previous diagnosis with prostate cancer in 2013 – the same disease that killed his father.
The two even teamed up for the reality show Eight Go Rallying: Road To Saigon, which aired in August 2018.
They had to compete against three other celebrity couples to win a 2,500-mile rally around south-east Asia.
But Noel fired off a furious criticism of the show after it aired, telling fans they were prevented from actually racing.

"We were trapped in the worst kind of reality TV show. The reality is that the producers are deceiving the viewers," he fumed.
Now he’s staring down the barrel of three weeks separated from his wife – but they’re planning a grand reunion with an extended trip to New Zealand straight after the jungle to celebrate Noel’s impending 70th birthday next month.
So, what will he miss the most while he’s in the jungle?
"Frankly, my wife," he admitted to the Mirror.
"It’s the longest Liz and I have ever been apart."
Noel was previously married to physiotherapist Gill Slater in 1971 but they split in 1982 after 11 years.
He then went on to wed Helen Soby in 1986 and they have four daughters together – Charlotte, who was Helen’s from her previous relationship, who Noel adopted as his own; Lorna, Olivia and Alice.
But their marriage also came to an end in 2003 after Helen cheated on Noel with a ‘cross-dressing’ Pilates instructor
