Noel Edmonds' secret bitter feud with Holly Willoughby comes after staggering 13 year grudge against Ant and Dec

The TV legend was the first star to be voted off I'm a Celebrity on Friday night, despite a £600K pay cheque.

Soon after his departure, The Sun exclusively revealed how Holly – who is co-hosting I'm a Celeb with Declan Donnelly this year – could not stand the 69-year-old’s “chippy” attitude to her before he was evicted.

The row stems from 2016, when the pair clashed over Noel’s suggestion that cancer is caused by “negative energy”.

But this isn't the first time Noel has held a grudge against someone, as he's had an axe to grind with Dec, 43 and his presenting partner Ant McPartlin since 2005.

Noel has made no secret of the fact he thinks the Geordie duo 'plundered' his popular 90s show, Noel's House Party, when they were developing their own Saturday entertainment show, Saturday Night Takeaway.

While he spoke about about the similarities between the two shows in an interview with Celebrity Radio, his grudge actually goes back as far as 2005, when he told The Independent: "They've been very honest about the derivation of their show.

"Their executive producer told me that the first thing they did when they were setting up the show was to get out the tapes of Noel's House Party."

While it looks like Noel could have put his feelings towards the pair behind him after revealing it was a conversation with Dec earlier this year which convinced him to do I'm a Celeb, the same can't be said for Holly, 37.

Last night, member of the I'm a Celebrity crew revealed to The Sun that a feud had been simmering between Noel and Holly over way he spoke to her during his time in the jungle

The telly veteran struggled to disguise his dislike of the popular presenter following their clash in 2016 on This Morning.

A source told The Sun on Sunday: “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.”
