Noel Edmonds insists feud with Phillip Schofield was a 'silly squabble' after they came to blows over his negative energy cancer comments

The 69-year-old star, who was the first campmate voted off the ITV show,  addressed the now infamous feud during an appearance on Good Morning Britain today.

The feud, which started in 2016,  stemmed from Noel’s suggestion that cancer is caused by “negative energy”.

However he played it down today, saying: "We had a spat on This Morning. I would love the opportunity to go on This Morning again and properly talk about the subject of the human body energy system.

"I never said electro-pulse therapy cured my cancer. I never said that. We got into one of those silly production squabbles.”

He added about Holly, who is presenting I’m A Celebrity this year:  “But there is no feud… I hugged Holly when I came out of camp."

Their “bad blood” began after Noel asked a cancer sufferer on Twitter if his disease could have been caused by “negative energy”.

The next day Holly and her This Morning co-host Phillip Schofield quizzed him about his shocking views.

Holly, who is a prominent supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, asked him: “Would you ask that to a child who has cancer, if it’s about negative energy?”

Noel, who has beaten prostate cancer, snapped back: “I think you are missing the point here.”


He later described Holly and Phil as “aggressive, disrespectful and dishonest”.

During his time in the jungle, the veteran TV presenter was said to be struggling to disguise his dislike of the very popular Holly.

A source said: “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. 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. She finds him patronising and feels uncomfortable around him.”
