Deal or no deal? Noel in BBC talks

Noel Edmonds, pictured, is in talks for a potential return to BBC1 for a Saturday show.

The host of Channel 4's 'Deal Or No Deal' is in discussions to host a programme that could replace 'Total Wipeout'.

Mr Edmonds was a Saturday-night staple with his 'Noel's House Party' series until it was axed in 1999.

A source confirmed he was in line to present a pilot version of 'The Bodyguard', in which contestants take part in a number of challenges. The pilot is to be filmed over the summer.

Mr Edmonds (63) largely disappeared from TV after the cancellation of 'House Party' but made a comeback in 2005 with 'Deal Or No Deal'. He has also hosted Sky's 'Are You Smarter Than A Ten Year Old?'.
