Noel Edmonds’ vile method of preparing for I’m A Celebrity jungle

Noel Edmonds is the biggest I’m A Celebrity star that ITV has bagged for years – and he’s more than ready to head into the jungle to face the creepy-crawlies (and John Barrowman’s incessant back catalogue of musical numbers).

But – in true Noel Edmonds style – he’s not doing anything by halves, telling the Mirror just how he’s prepared himself for the ordeals of the camp.

Speaking to us shortly before he joins his fellow celebs in Croc Creek, Noel revealed: "I’ve done a certain amount of preparation for this.

"I was in Thailand in February with my wife who has no problems with spiders and bugs. We were in this insect market in Cambodia and there was a kid with a tarantula and Liz said, ‘if you’re going to do that show, then you should hold the spider’, so I held the spider but it did take a while to get to that point.

"So yes. I have been practising a few things but not eating the testicles."

The Mirror exclusively revealed Noel would be the mystery 11th campmate earlier this month, after ITV threw hundreds of thousands of pounds at him to sign on the dotted line.

"They want to look at the young ladies – it’s that Myleene Klass moment. No-one will be interested in seeing me in the shower," he pointed out.

"You do wear things in the shower? I don’t think ITV’s ready for Mr Happy and the twins."

Shudder.

Noel should have no problem in taking on the Bushtucker trials – he famously doesn’t believe in death, and believes his late parents follow him around in the form of melon-sized energy orbs that can only be seen in digital photographs.
