Noel Fielding once claimed Bob Geldof wanted to “kill him” over his and Pixie Geldof’s 17-year age-gap.
The Great British Bake Off host was rumoured to be dating Bob’s daughter when he was 33 and she was 16, after they were spotted out together.
He has denied ever being anything more than friends with the model and singer, now 33, but said they had “chemistry” at the time.
According to The Sun , Noel, now 50, said: “She’s incredible. There’s a chemistry between us and we liked each other but she’s so much younger.
“When I first met her I had no idea who she was and that she was so young. It caused a lot of problems because her dad wanted to kill me obviously.”

Noel added: “A lot of that’s my fault for getting tempted by different things.”
He also reportedly claimed “groupies” tried to get in his way and people pretended to be his friends.
Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Noel and Pixie for comment.
In 2009, Noel addressed the rumours again, in which he claimed he and the model were “just friends”.
As reported by Daily Star, he said: “We’re just friends that’s all, but you can’t be friends in this country without someone booking a church and trying to get you married.”

The presenter was last spotted publicly with Pixie in 2015, where they were joined by his partner Lliana Bird.
Noel has been with the radio presenter since 2010 after they met on The Mighty Boosh.
The couple welcomed their first child, Dali, in 2018 followed by their second daughter, Iggy, two years later.
Lliana shared details about their relationship on Giovanna Fletcher’s Happy Mum Happy Baby podcast, last month.
Noel’s partner said he was a “magical” father who made “the silliest little moments”.

She explained: “He makes having breakfast a real moment. I think I’ve just really leaned into that and just going like, ‘This is amazing. We’re getting to have porridge and it’s funny, and it’s fun. And we’re wearing silly hats, and we’re dancing. And that’s okay’
“Maybe someone else’s kids are going to have a few more spoonfuls of porridge because it’s going to be quicker, they’re eating it properly, and digesting it properly. But, you know, my kids are having a lot of fun.”
Meanwhile, Pixie has been married to George Barnett since 2017 and they have a two-year-old daughter together.
