Noel Edmonds has given a slightly bizarre interview in which he claims that there “isn’t such a thing as death” and that the greatest threat to humanity is “electrosmog”: a pervasive intertwining of wi-fi in public places that is destroying out electro-magnetic fields and is more dangerous than ebola or AIDS, since you ask.

“The Wi-Fi and all of the systems that we are introducing into our lives are destroying our own natural electro-magnetic fields,” the former king of Saturday night TV in the ‘90s explained in a revealing new interview with The Mirror, in which he talks about his career and spiritual beliefs. “All you are is energy, remember that.”

The 66 year old ‘Deal or No Deal’ presenter says that he got his life under control by using cosmic ordering, and by looking to the planets for answers. He claims that the key to happiness and a positive mindset is to view the body as a “container of energy”.

“You don’t live life, life lives you. There isn’t such a thing as death, it’s just departure. You cannot die, it’s been known for a very long time,” he says. “My energy will return to where it came from - part of a massive, incomprehensible universal web of energy.”

But our modern lifestyle of total connection and social media is apparently going to be the downfall of society, Edmonds says. “We’re surrounded by electro mist, fog and smog. We’re covering ourselves in the wrong sorts of electro-magnetism. These idiot politicians who talk about climate change, for goodness sake, do they really think little us can do anything about it? No, of course not. The biggest problem we have is not Ebola, it’s not AIDS, it’s electro-smog.”

The US dentist who shot Cecil the Lion can apparently expect some serious cosmic retribution, according to Edmonds. “Something is going to happen to that guy because what he did was so utterly negative,” he warned. “The energy he poured out left such a big gap, negative energy will pour into him.”
