Noel Fielding’s road to fame was unexpected

Before exploding in the entertainment industry, Fielding began his career by guest-starring on a slew of shows.

However, the comedian skyrocketed to success when he began appearing on The Mighty Boosh in 2004. From there, he’s gotten countless more opportunities.

Fielding has co-hosted The Great British Baking Show since 2017, and he also has his own Netflix series in the works. “Basically, a guy gets hold of a magic record player and when you put the record player on a portal appears, and you can go inside your favorite albums,” he revealed, according to Chortle.

‘The Great British Baking Show’ fans had no idea Noel Fielding was over 45

The Great British Baking Show fans were stunned when Fielding randomly quipped that he was over 45-years-old. In a recent episode of the series, Fielding’s co-host Lucas said, “Yeah, that joke works best if you’re over 45.” Fielding added, “Yeah, that joke works best if you’re over 45.”

Fans absolutely rushed to Google to determine Fielding’s real age. After all, with his long black hair and fashionable shirts, he has given off a super youthful flair. However, fans were stunned to discover that the London-born entertainer was born on May 21, 1973. This means that today, Fielding is 47-years-old.

One fan tweeted, “Yes yes Noel Fielding’s a vampire lolololol but seriously how the hell is that man 47?! #BakeOff#GBBO.” Since Fielding first began appearing on TV in the late ’90s and early 2000s the math makes sense.
