The Deal or No Deal host is filming a pilot for Channel 4 similar to the former children’s entertainment programme, which was broadcast on the BBC on Saturday mornings for six years.

According to the Daily Mirror, the potential programme is called SOS Sell or Swap and is being described as a “brand-new auction show”.

Should the pilot be deemed a success then the 67-year-old TV presenter may land a whole series of the programme.

The original series, in which kids could swap their belongings with others, aired from October 1976 to March 1982 and also starred roving TV reporter Keith Chegwin and Countryfile presenter John Craven as well as Maggie Philbin.

A stuffed toy dinosaur called Posh Paws also featured and Noel once revealed his name was spelled Pohs Paws, which is Swap Shop backwards.

The show’s full title was Multi-Coloured Swap Shop but it was mainly called Swap Shop.

The original presenting team reunited in 2006 for a special programme to celebrate the 30th anniversary of BBC children’s Saturday morning shows.

Entitled It Started with Swap Shop, the episode featured presenters from similar shows, such as Live & Kicking!, Going Live! and Saturday Superstore.

Several stars, including Sir Cliff Richard, Delia Smith and Dame Edna Everage phoned into the programme, which also featured appearances from Andi Peters, Emma Forbes and Sir Lenny Henry.
