Husband's fury as wife jets off to France with the telly star

A heartbroken husband claims his wife walked out on him – then jetted off to France with Noel Edmonds.

Make-up artist Liz Davies, 37, met The Deal Or No Deal host when she powdered his nose for the show and now the pair have been photographed together.

The mum-of-two spent last weekend away with Noel, 57, at his mansion in the south of France.

Twice-divorced Noel has told pals that Liz is a ‘special friend’. He says he only started seeing her 10 days after her marriage broke up.

But Liz’s husband Nathan Ridler tells The Sun: ‘I had my suspicions Liz might look elsewhere, but I had no idea she’d end up with Noel Edmonds. She just told me she wanted some breathing space, but then soon after she told me she was leaving. It came out of the blue.’

A close friend says: ‘Noel absolutely denies splitting the marriage up. He’s very old-fashioned. He has very proud values.’
