Noelle is expecting her first child - a baby boy - with partner Nick Perks
Noelle and Nick have been dating since November last year. The couple, who move in the same circles and share a number of mutual friends, first met at a party in Ibiza in August, and reconnected romantically just a few months later.
Noelle's new-found happiness is all the more poignant given the tragic death of her fiancé Scott Young in December 2014. Now the star is firmly focused on the future. As well as preparing for the arrival of her baby boy, the former Ladies of London star is launching a brand new shopping channel on 4 July. DCS (Digital Shopping Channel) is a live stream channel available to view globally online 24 hours a day.

Noelle founded the bespoke channel with the aim of catering for every lifestyle need at the click of a button, from cooking and home, to fashion, beauty and technology. So, "while Throwback Thursdays touch on classic cooking recipes such as devilled eggs with a new twist, DSC Decorates might show you how to make your own bed stand from your own reclaimed furniture".
"The main aim of DSC is to provide an up-to-date and realistic shopping experience which the millennial generations want to actually engage in and feel proud to be part of," Noelle said of the exciting new project.
"What is key, is that the digital revolution means a customer watching the show, could just as easily become a content provider. Now we all publish our own content there is a shift in retail power and influence. We are tapping into this mindset in a creative and unique way."
