When Noel Edmonds popped out for an ice cream, he probably didn't expect people to be fixated on his feet.

A picture of the former Deal or No Deal host went viral on X, formerly known as Twitter, after he visited Laxey Beach Stop Cafe recently. Staff seemed delighted to see him at the Isle of Man location.

He was seen posing with employees with a sweet treat in hand, much to their delight that TV royalty had stopped by. It's certainly a lovely picture – but nobody expected the attention to turn to Noel's feet.

In the snap, you'll see Noel sporting a jacket and brown footwear. The only thing is the shoes don't match – one is a tanned brogue and the other is a darker-coloured boot.

A woman called Julia Suzanne shared a screenshot of the image online, adding: "I have questions about Noel Edmonds' shoes." And she definitely sparked discussion!

One person quipped: "Heel or no Heel." Another wrote: "Twice in my life I have gone out wearing odd shoes. Not my proudest moments. Once was to work."

A third replied: "One to match his hair, the other to match his beard." Meanwhile, a fourth theorised: "Maybe he had two pairs he really liked, and found comfortable. And eventually a shoe from each pair became damaged. So he just wears the remaining two. Or he mixed them up in his rush to get free ice cream."

While many of the comments were jokey, others tried to make reason of the situation. A responder suggested: "Maybe the left one fits and is comfortable on the left foot, and the right the right foot…. And he’s confident enough to wear what’s comfortable….. maybe….. principle of charity."
