Noel Edmonds gave Emily Atack some reassurance on her relationship woes as the pair had a heart-to-heart in the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! camp.

Since losing his position of power, former Emperor Noel has had more time to get to know his fellow celebrity campmates.


One such moment came yesterday, when he told Emily how he met his current wife Liz while working on Deal or No Deal.

“She was doing my make up for three days, and six weeks later we were living together,” he explained.

“Just before Christmas 2008 I took her to St Petersburg and got down on one knee in front of St Catherine’s Palace. When you find that special person it puts everything into perspective.”

The story of their whirlwind romance fascinated Emily, who spilled the beans on the recent end of her long-term relationship.

“I’ve not met that person yet. I’m soul searching at the moment,” she mused.

“I had a difficult start to the year, I had a break up after being with someone for five years. I’d got into the habit of needing that security, love and acceptance from a guy to make me happy.”


The former Inbetweeners star proceeded to explain how her time in the Australian jungle has helped her detox.

“For me this has been very daunting. In here I’m not worried, I’m carefree,” she said.

“I’m a bit of a boozer on the outside and I thought coming in here without booze I’d be really quiet and shy but I don’t need it at all. I’m nearly 29 and want to look after myself and who I am.”

Noel was impressed with Emily’s attitude, and offered her a reassuring prediction.

“When you are 100% comfortable with yourself, shortly after that you will find that person,” he said. “Positive energy radiates and you can only attract other positive energy.”

In the Bush Telegraph, he added: “Emily’s having an important milestone in her life.


“You will never had a meaningful relationship with anyone else unless you have that with yourself.”

I’m A Celebrity airs every night at 9pm on ITV, followed by Extra Camp on ITV2.
