After just hours in the jungle, he was getting people’s backs up and ordering his fellow campmates around as their new “emperor”.
But 69-year-old Noel Edmonds should be able to cope just fine, thanks to cosmic ordering – achieving goals by having a positive attitude and asking the cosmos to deliver.
And although we have yet to see his I’m A Celebrity luxury item, it’s unlikely to be the electro-magnetic pad he credits for that trademark thick hair.
Electromagnetic fields are something of a theme for Noel, who has said “electrosmog”, caused by things such as mobile phones, is destroying them.
But, no matter what solo trials he ends up facing, he won’t be alone, as Noel claims he is visited by melon-sized orbs which he believes are his parents.
Here, in his own words from his self help book Positively Happy, Noel gives his top advice – and lots of it will be very helpful for coping in the jungle.

Dealing with trials
It’s easy to be positive when everything is going your way. But our real tests and the moments that define us all are those times when we are really up against it.
Another way of dealing with the anxiety generated by negative thoughts is to ask yourself, “what’s the absolute worst that can happen?”.
My belief in the cosmos helps to give my life some sort of order. It’s the spiritual backup for all my practical actions and efforts, a positive force that helps me and provides me with a reference point…
The cosmos may be there for me, but it won’t deliver unless I set myself goals, make opportunities and believe in my own abilities.
Face your fears
Fear is a natural reaction, in that it is supposed to make us stop and think before we do something.
The problem is when our self-imposed limitations dictate our actions and hold us back.
A good way to prepare for major changes is to start by making some relatively minor ones. Change your breakfast. Change your route to work. Change your hair and clothes. Try a new flavour of tea.

Take a jungle shower
Don’t let the world see you crumble. Instead, get up, have a shower, put on your favourite clothes – and remember that you’re still the person you’ve always been.
Beware of creeping gremlins
I think that putting your head down and getting on with it is often the best antidote to uncertainty.
If you think about things too much, the gremlins will creep in and destroy your self-confidence.
Are you outdoors or indoors?
Are you by the sea or in the mountains? What is your ideal view? What would you eat? Who would you be? This really is a wonderful way to tap into what you really want. And the best part is, nobody else will have the same day. It’s uniquely yours.
No technology is a good thing
If you spent less time hugging the phone and more time hugging others, you really would become that “wanted” person you wish to be.
Picture your ideal day
I’m a great fan of the “ideal day” exercise, in which you create a picture of your perfect day from the moment you wake up in the morning until you go to sleep at night.
