I’m A Celebrity’s Noel Edmonds’ terrifying tactic for keeping burglars away

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star Noel Edmonds has a very unusual and terrifying tactic to keep burglars away from his home.

The Deal Or No Deal host is rumoured to be getting a whopping £600,000 for his appearance on the ITV reality show.

And the star has taken drastic measures to ensure that his £2.65 million home remains secure while he’s away.

Recent visitors to Noel’s house in the south west were shocked to see a mannequin fishing from a boat on the lake in Noel’s front garden.

It appears that Noel has dressed the plastic dummy to look like him by sticking a fake beard on its face.

It seems to be an attempt to trick passers-by into thinking that Noel is sat enjoying some peaceful fishing on his private lake, rather than actually being thousands of miles away in the Australian jungle.

The mannequin is dressed in grey tracksuit bottoms, a matching jacket and cap.

He’s holding onto a fishing pole that’s dangling in the water as he floats along in a boat.

Noel has used a mannequin for interesting purposes before.

It’s got a fake beard and everything

In 2011, his third wife Liz suggested they buy a mannequin to put in the back of his cab that he would drive to Bristol everyday for Deal Or No Deal filming.

The mannequin, named Candice, was bought to prevent people trying to flag Noel down in his taxi for a lift, but bizarrely became part of the family.

"We really didn’t expect things would take off like this," Noel said of Candice in 2013.
