Noel Edmonds has come up with a stealth trick to try and deter burglars from hitting his home while he films Im A Celebrity in Australia.

While were not sure whether or not he thought crims watched TV, hes of the belief he can fool the lot of them by placing a mannequin of himself in the middle of a pond on his vast £2.6million estate.

Or, so we assume – why else would he have a mannequin out there?

The fake lad is fishing, and, from afar looks quite believable, we have to say.

In photos, fake Noel can be seen on a boat in the middle of the water, styled with a beard and sporting fishing ear, and it holds a fishing rod in the garden of the Georgian mansion.

We joke it might be to deter thieves, however its not the first time the presenter, currently ruffling feathers on the ITV show, has purchased such a mannequin.

It was also reported Noel bought a Black Cab to drive around in, and apicked up a blonde dummy named Candice that he sat in the back so punters didnt mistake his whip for an empty cab and try to hail him as he drove around the capital.

A stealth and cunning plan if we do say so ourselves!

We fear Noel might have more to fear in the camp, though, as he made a few enemies after taking his Emperor role VERY seriously after landing in Australia only 24 hours ago.

While The Chases Mark said hed go full Spartacus on Noel if he messed with comrade Anne Hegerty, Emily Atack said shed simply shit in his bed.

Hey, each to their own.

Noel, 69, tried to groin-shame John Barrowman in an ill-judged joke that failed spectacularly, and immediately it became crystal clear that the harmonious few days wed become accustomed to are officially done.

And during Extra Camp, which followed the main show on ITV, Emily Atack, 28, joined John, 51, to carry Emperor Noels belongings to his grandiose chambers, and joked: Shall we just take a shit on his bed?
