Fans of The Great Celebrity Bake Off for SU2C (and me – I can’t watch it; it’s too stressful) were left gobsmacked tonight after host Noel Fielding inadvertently revealed his real age to his co-host, Sandi Toksvig.
A sprinkling of stars decorated the famous tent for tonight’s brand new ep for Stand Up To Cancer, including The Masked Singer host and general joker Joel Dommett (pictured below), television icon Caroline Quentin, Next in Fashion’s Tan France and tennis player Johanna Konta.
Some true gags came out of the oven during tonight’s ep, but the real gag of the night escaped from host Noel Fielding’s gob when he revealed his real age to co-host Sandi Toksvig and the nation.
White sat on top of a fridge (of course – so edgy), he casually told Sandi:
“Look at me. I’m 46. Not a job for a grown man is it?
“I thought at this stage I’d be settling down, maybe writing a few novels.”
It wasn’t exactly a reveal, I know. Technically any of us could google Noel Fielding’s age any time – we just haven’t. Why would we? But now we know, it’s an undeniable mic drop, you know? The guy looks f*cking good for 46.
Social media’s creme brûlées naturally collapsed over the comedian’s gobsmacking confession.
One user exclaimed:
“Did Noel just say he’s 46?!?! Forty f*****g six. WHAT #GBBO”
“I’m in shock – Noel is 46! What is his secret?!”
Just don’t tell Cher or RuPaul, Noel. They’ll come for you and your anti-ageing secrets.
Honestly, if constantly being around sh*t tons of cake has anything to do with Noel’s youthful complexion, then I no longer fear ageing. At all. I’ll be fine.
Shout-out to self-isolation for seriously helping me with that RN.
