The telly legend, 69, was the first star to leave the jungle following a shock departure.
He had sad that if he won the smash hit show, he'd quit telly for good and start drawing his pension.
But now, it seems, Noel has a renewed taste for showbiz – and won't be quitting the industry anytime soon.
He's put his posh French mansion up for sale for £4 million, and is now planning to move to somewhere even more luxurious in Monte Carlo.
A source told the Mail On Sunday: "He's got the taste for showbiz again and has gone back on his promise to quit TV."
It's also believed that ITV bosses want Noel to make a show with his fellow jungle pal Harry Redknapp.
Ahead of his stint Down Under, Noel confirmed that he will quit television should he win the show.
The presenter's long-standing representative appeared on This Morning alongside Noel's Swap Shop co-host Maggie Philbin and Mr Blobby, who hilariously thrashed through the ITV set.
Speaking to hosts Phillip Schofield and Rochelle Humes from Bristol, John was asked about a post that the I'm A Celebrity Instagram account put out before he went into the jungle, which stated he would quit TV if he was crowned King of the Jungle.

Responding to the speculation, John, who also represents fellow camper Nick Knowles, replied: "Well you know Noel, he says lots of things tongue-in-cheek.
"I don't know, we'll have to wait and see."
Not impressed with the answer, Phil pushed: "He must have informed you, his manager? 'If I win this thing, that's it, I'm quitting the business, I'm retiring'".
To which, John answered: "Yes, he did say that. It's true."
John, who convinced Noel to take his presenting role on Deal Or No Deal, admitted that the host has been asked a number of times throughout the years to go into the jungle.
Although originally declining previous offers, John explained that Noel was looking for a "challenge".
