Noel Edmonds blasts Countdown Star Rachel Riley for appearing in Lloyds ad – after he sued bank for £60m

NOEL Edmonds has slammed Rachel Riley for appearing in a Lloyds advert – because he’s suing the bank for £60million.

The Countdown star, 32, appeared in the ad encouraging people to speak up about their mental health.

But Noel, 69, who is locked in a legal battle with the bank over a fraud case, launched an attack against her because she is part of the bank’s “propaganda”, The Mail reports.

He said: “Apparently Rachel has been paid £20,000 to lend her name to the campaign.

“It’s possible that Rachel is not aware that Lloyds Bank is responsible for the destruction of lives and livelihoods on a military scale.”

The Deal or No Deal host demanded Rachel “hand back the money and restore your integrity”.

He added: “You’re either with the victims or the perpetrators. Undo the damage, Rachel.”

The advert campaign, which is partnered with Mental Health UK, sees Rachel encouraging people to open up about their demons while wearing a Post-it note saying: “#gettheinsideout”.

Noel is currently suing Lloyds for £60million over a fraud ten years ago that he claims crippled his TV business.

He said his former entertainment business Unique Group was ruined by corrupt financiers at HBOS in Reading, which was later bought by Lloyds.

Crooked financiers from the firm were caged last year for the £245 million loans scam, which they squandered on prostitutes and luxury holidays.

Noel took an overdose in 2005 after “losing everything” to the swindlers.

He has also taken his compensation fight against Lloyds to the airwaves – creating his own station to bash the bankers.

Lloyds has said it made “determined efforts to reach a consensual resolution” with Noel last year but “this was not possible”.

A spokesman said: “As a formal litigation process has begun it would be inappropriate to comment other than to say his claim will be contested.”
