Families across the country were deeply moved by a 'feel-good' seasonal show yesterday, that aimed to reunite long-lost acquaintances and make them cry and look really grateful. But no-one was ready for the flood of emotion that overwhelmed sensitive viewers, when Noel Edmonds was reunited with a prime-time TV career.
Edmonds was visibly affected by the enormous cheque handed to him by an ITV executive. As they embraced and kissed, it was too much for some to watch. "I was in bits", confessed Brian Drepford, as he witnessed the event with his wife and children. "If I thought for a moment we'd see Edmonds back in a Saturday evening slot, I'd have bought a better warranty for our new TV. It's not been right since Noel gave us a cheeky wink, and we projectile vomited all down the back of it."
