Noel Edmonds was always going to be the most talked-about I’m A Celebrity contestant – what with the odd beliefs about death, the £60million legal battle with his bank and the life-sized mannequin named Candice he likes to dress in women’s clothes.
But it’s actually his body that has everyone’s jaws dropping – because despite being just a couple of weeks from his 70th birthday, Noel has a very impressive set of muscles.
Now his third wife Liz Edmonds has opened up about how he’s sculpted his buff biceps and pert pecs over the years, when she appeared on Friday’s This Morning.

Speaking from Queensland, Australia – where she and the family and friends of the other I’m A Celeb campmates are staying until the end of the series – Liz admitted she doesn’t mind seeing Noel in the nude.
"He does numerous things to keep fit and I’m proud of him, he does look good. I am very pleased to see him with his top off! He’s just very careful about what he eats, he’s devised his own fitness regime
"He’s got several things he does – you need to get him on this show so he can explain."

Eamonn Holmes then asked about the somewhat awkward circumstances in which they met, when makeup artist Liz was still married to her ex-husband when she was working on Noel’s Channel 4 show Deal Or No Deal.
"You started a little office romance, then?" Eamonn asked her.
Hesitating slightly, Liz said: "Erm. Well. I wouldn’t say office romance. You do hear of things where it’s like love at first sight, and actually really it was. It took me totally by surprise, it took him bysurprise. It was like, ‘boom!’. It does happen."

It was love at first sight
The married couple have never gone a day without speaking to each other, and haven’t gone more than two weeks without seeing each other in person, Liz confessed.
"We talk several times every day. I feel uncomfortable not being able to pick up the phone and just have a chit-chat," she said.
And Liz admitted she did send Noel into the jungle with a secret symbol to remember her by.
"Guilty as charged," she said when quizzed on whether she really had painted his toenails.

"We like to make each other laugh and when I told him he said, ‘really?’, and I said, ‘every time you look at your toes you’ll laugh’.
Asked whether Noel could be crowned King of the Jungle, Liz laughed.
"Who knows? I really don’t know – if he gets there, great – if he gets out early, it’s great for me!"
