Noel Edmonds has reportedly moved his show, Noel’s HQ, to Channel Five from Sky TV over a disagreement about presenting the show live.

Sky bosses wanted Noel to start pre-recording the series following a live rant the 60-year-old presenter made on air last month, according to The Sun.

But Noel refused and is now taking the second series of the programme, which campaigns on issues hitting ordinary people, to Channel Five.

A Sky spokesman said: “Sky1 and Noel Edmonds have mutually agreed not to proceed with a second series.”

But added: “We will continue to work with Noel on a number of projects including Noel’s Christmas Presents and we’re refreshing gameshow Are You Smarter Than A 10 Year Old?”

Viewers complained when Noel used an episode earlier this year to lambast a local council. He called for their press officer to be sacked over a planning row affecting a disabled war veteran.

Sky re-edited the show for its repeat screening, which angered Noel, who threatened to quit.
