Telly legend Noel Edmonds is bidding to revive his classic House Party show.
The fun-filled BBC1 favourite, with comedy character Mr Blobby, was last on screens in 1999.
But TV insiders say Noel, 69 plans to pitch a revival to other broadcasters after his successful appearance on Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.
A TV source said: “Noel is involved in planning a pitch alongside a production team who will take it to TV execs.
“He’s open to the show being modernised, but the basic format worked — that’s why it’s so fondly remembered.”
Noel’s House Party, broadcast from fictional village Crinkley Bottom, attracted up to 15 million viewers at its height.
