£3m TV deal for Noel

Today's Daily Mail reports:
£3m TV deal for Noel the comeback king

It is less than six months since Noel Edmonds made his television comeback after five years in the broadcasting wilderness.

But the transformation from TV pariah to born-again star is complete after he signed a deal that will make him the highest paid presenter on British television.

Channel 4 has agreed to pay Edmonds £3million to continue presenting his hit gameshow Deal or No Deal for the next 18 months.

The contract, which catapults him alongside Paul O'Grady as television's top-earning presenter, comes after ITV tried to poach him to head up its daytime schedule.

But the success of Deal or No Deal has marked a transformation in his fortunes.
The show has been a runaway hit for Channel 4 since it began last November.

It is now attracting up to 5million viewers in its afternoon slot, making it one of Channel 4' s highest rating shows, alongside Big Brother and Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares.

"Noel has proved a revelation since the show started," a source said.
"Yes, he is now being paid a lot of money but you only have to look at the ratings to see why."
