Noel Edmonds has tied the knot with ‘soul mate’ Liz Davies.

The 60-year-old Deal or No Deal star, who has married twice before, wed makeup artist Liz Davies, 40, in a low-key ceremony in the Cotswolds.

After the civil service and church blessing, Noel said: “I’ve finally found my soul mate – I’ve read about it in books and seen it in films, and now it’s happened.”

He went on: “This has been a magical day, it really has. I don’t know what to say, I’m so happy. We met on October 6, 2006 at six minutes past 11 in the morning.

“She walked into the dressing room I had at Deal or No Deal and was introduced as the stand-in makeup artist who would be doing me for the next three days.

“Then something strange happened, and here we are.”

He said there had been an instant chemistry between them.

“To start with it was all very professional, but there was a look in both our eyes,” he said. “If you speak to Liz, she would say she didn’t sleep for three nights and I couldn’t stop thinking about her,” he added.

Noel and his bride turned down big-money magazine offers for the rights to their wedding, instead preferring a simple affair with fewer than 100 guests.
