Noel and Lliana keep their two young children out of the spotlight, but following Dali's arrival in 2018, he spoke for the first time about his experience of fatherhood.

Chatting about his daughter on The Jonathan Ross Show, Noel said: "I don't know how that happened, look at my pointy visage! She is very beautiful and she blows my mind about a hundred times a day.

"It's a new level of tiredness that I've never experienced. I've done a lot of all-nighters in my life. In a way I've been in training for this moment all my life."

Meanwhile, Noel looks set to return to GBBO later on this year after taking some time off following the birth of little Iggy. His co-host Matt Lucas is certainly looking forward to his return. He previously said of the Mighty Boosh star: "I just have fun and I love working with Noel. He's so funny.

"We've both been in double acts – we're used to being in that dynamic. So when we write together we understand the rhythms to go, 'Oh actually, I've thought of this joke, but you have it.' Noel is really generous like that. He comes up with very funny things for me to say."
