Noel Edmonds’ shock exit from I’m A Celebrity left the whole nation absolutely gobsmacked last night.
And the legendary presenter, 69, admitted that he himself had a "very difficult 24 hours"… but maybe not for the reason you might expect.
Appearing on I’m A Celeb’s spin-off show Extra Camp, he said: "I’ve had a very difficult 24 hours because I miss Harry, I really miss Harry… Harry and I did strike up quite a friendship."
Thankfully, host Scarlet Moffatt was able to appease his pain somewhat by giving him a framed photo of the football manager.
The legendary presenter’s shock exit was a particular blow to ITV bosses, who had reportedly paid £600k for his 10 day-stint in the jungle.

Admitting that he was shocked to be out so early, Noel said: "When it happened I was surprised but then it dawned on me that I was going to be with [wife] Liz."
He joked that he felt an "overwhelming need to calm the nation" after discovering the outcry over his shock exit.

Noel quipped: "Please do not riot… I’ve spoken to the prime minister!"
Asked about his opinion on Nick Knowles, he said: "Nick I think is great and is a natural leader… I do have a problem sometimes with rules and regulations…"
