I've long been intending to start a thread called 'Which ludicrous British celebrity might launch a Trump-style bid for power?'

Edmonds is top of the list.

Edit: Ah new page.  As good as starting a new thread.

Yeah.  He trumps and it's like a deadly poisonous gas that spreads unremittingly over a wider and wider area without diluting it's potency.  The nation is held to ransom for the antidote.

He's a fucking prannet these days but I just can't hate him.  Too much goodwill in the bank, mainly stemming from his pitch perfect bit on Swap Shop - avuncular, fun and totally genuine.  His grinning rat is flashing at me from the 'spoons quizzer as I write and it's sad that he went down the South West mystical libertarian arsehole route but I suspect he's having a bit of a laugh about it all.

Even then the signs were there-like talking to a dinosaur made from cardboard egg-boxes painted purple.

He's definitely mentally ill. I can say that as a certified mental illness professional.

I actually think this is a very unfair analysis of said Noel.

He did try that weird Daily Mail-style TV programme where he shouted at councillors. If that had taken off then he would probably have started a political career.

Tom Baker and Brian Blessed are eccentric celebrities. Noel's public pronouncements are demented and potentially dangerous.


He could be an oddball who is also a charlatan.

He is basically a big old divvy, isn't he?

I pretended he was my uncle at uni for a bit (my maiden name was Edmonds). I don't even know why. It certainly wasn't to gain favour with anyone, Christ!

I think its a bit cruel to suggest he's mentally ill, if he is then so are lots of odd people in showbiz. Where does 'eccentric' end and 'mentally ill' begin?

Around the time you start doing things like this:



He has also apparently been trying to claim half the £100m fund set aside for HBOS fraud victims should be his. Fucking hell man, how much more money do you need?

'Cheap Cheap Cheap'

'The game show format that thinks it’s a sitcom!

Cheap Cheap Cheap is an inspired collision of comedy and game show. The action takes place in a fictional general store and centres around a game show, hosted by the store owner (played by Noel Edmonds in the UK) who invites pairs of contestants to win an increasing amount of money by correctly picking the cheapest of three similar items. It couldn’t be simpler! It could be three different styles of hat, three different brands of coffee maker, or three contrasting pizzas. If they fail to guess the cheapest item they’ll be eliminated from the game, lose all their money and the next eager contestants step up to the challenge. Throughout the game, the shop’s eccentric staff offer the contestants advice, encouragement – and distraction. A truly original show!'

Supermarket Sweep for the Made In Chelsea generation!

Blobby?

In a way, Blobby is a microcosm of Noel's whole career. Excellent initially (the first couple of appearances, when Noel himself was inside the costume, were very funny) with diminishing returns until it got to the point where everyone was sick of the fucking sight of him.

Not a character who progresses or develops much, is he?  And Mr Blobby was almost as bad.

From Hat Trick's page.

Couldn't sound less watchable if it tried.

It looks like something that David Brent scribbled down on his notepad while looking up Jennifer's skirt. I thought it was a joke when I saw this quoted above, but it's actually real.

He's another one of those things that looking back is so absurd you wonder whether or not it's just a false memory from a fever dream or something... see also: Hammerman.

All he did was bump into or jump on things or people, and say, 'Blobby!  Blobby!

You know what I like about Noel? That he fucking hates Philip Schofield. Now, I quite like yer Schofe. I've bumped into him and he's quite nice, he's left-wing and generally compassionate and all that. But you can't deny Edmonds/Schofield is one laughably shit feud.

Noel's sense of entitlement is almost at megalomanical levels - I don't think that can be denied. His first big primetime show ended on account of a slight case of Saturday evening light entertainment funtime manslaughter of a young father. To most people it'd be 'fucking hell, I should be extremely contrite that that happened on my show and keep my head down and be grateful to just DJ on Radio Swindon or something'. But no. Noel came back with the House Party - essentially the same format as The Late Late Breakfast Show but with the name changed to something that the British public didn't associate quite so strongly with someone going whoopsy-daisy-splat. Was he satisfied? Was he fuck, mate, he wanted a theme park that pretty much bankrupted the council of Morecambe. Was he contrite about that? Nope, Deal Or No Deal time (after some bullshit where he nearly killed someone in a helicopter, I think). And all the while he's whinging, moaning, trying to buy the BBC, suing banks, selling hocus pocus cancer cures, declaring Britain has gone bonkers on some shit Sky show, railing against councils wanting bagpipers to not play too late at night, dressing up as an insane bearded woman to rant about House Party being taken off YouTube and phoning up your dachsund to ask how it's feeling.

What a guy.

Neol on Wogan soon after the death on Late Late Breakfast Show.  Note Terry's gaffe on Noel's 'gay parties' at 8.16-20.
