26 Apr 07, 3:11 PM - Is Noel Edmonds disabled?
Yes, it's true. Could the beardie bloke with the dubious taste in shirts, who presents Channel 4's Deal or No Deal?, be one of us? That's what concerned disabled people up and down the land are asking after the shock news broke that Noel Edmonds parked in a disabled parking bay! "Stunned onlookers" were apparently aghast and appalled as Mr Edmonds sped his ÂŁ110,000 Aston Martin DB9 into a blue badge bay outside a fitness centre in Bristol, where the great man was due to speak at a charity fundraising event.
Sadly, as I was busy getting all hot under my monkey collar about this, ready to boycott any future afternoons watching Noel talking to the banker and opening 22 red boxes on the telly, I read on and discovered that apparently he had been given permission to park there by the centre's owners, so that he could get in and out of the building quickly without having to mix with members of the general riff-raff - er, I mean, public.
Crippled Monkey says: Boo and hiss to Noel! You would never have dared behave in such a flagrantly disrespectful and disablist manner in your Multi-Coloured Swap Shop days. Sniff. My childhood dreams have been shattered, innit?
