Holly Willoughby reportedly “finds Noel Edmonds patronising” as their behind-the-scenes I’m a Celeb feud has been revealed.
The television presenter was the first celebrity to be voted out of the reality show last night and fans witnessed an awkward encounter between the star and Holly when he joined the hosts for an interview.
While the 69-year-old greeted Declan Donnelly with a hug, he did not do the same with the mother-of-three and the tension between the pair has now been revealed.
“Holly and Noel do not like each other and their bad blood goes right back to the This Morning interview. Holly was angry with Noel at the time and thought he was callous,” a source told The Sun, referring to Noel’s 2016 interview in which he said that “positive energy” helped him to beat prostate cancer.
“And it’s no secret at all that she was shocked when he was signed for I’m a Celebrity. She has been very professional on the show but if you know her, you can see that she does not like him,” the source continued.
“She finds him patronising and feels uncomfortable around him.”
Noel broke I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! records this series, as he became the highest paid contestant in the show’s history, with a huge £600,000.
