The successful actor, musician and presenter was best known prior to the Bake Off for the surreal comedy The Mighty Boosh.

His unique style helped land him a bumper £150,000 pay rise to continue hosting The Great British Bake Off in February 2020.

According to accounts filed at Companies House in February 2020, his earnings soared to £1.1million – up almost £250,000 on the previous year.

He now has a net worth of over £4m, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Career aside, Noel has been dating his long-term girlfriend Lliana Bird since 2010.

The couple live together in London with their daughter, Dali, who was born in April 2018.

Lliana is a writer, actress and radio presenter who hosts a Sunday night show on Radio X.

She has starred in various theatre shows, has her own production company called Bird & Be, and has appeared as a guest commentator on Sky News and BBC Breakfast.

They welcomed their newborn, called Dali, in April 2018, who is believed to be named after Noel’s favourite artist, the surrealist painter, Salvador Dali.

“It’s a new level of tiredness that I’ve never experienced. I’ve done a lot of all-nighters in my life. In a way, I’ve been in training for this moment all my life.”

The pair now have a second daughter who was born in 2020.
