Noel Edmonds' beard, Bertie, was sensationally arrested today on suspicion of inappropriate use of Just For Men.
Bertie and Edmonds were recording an edition of 'Deal or No Deal' when armed police swooped on the studios. Bertie was then taken to Scotland Yard for questioning whilst a shaken Edmonds regained his composure to continue recording the hit show.
It is understood that Bertie had been under surveillance for a number of months following an anonymous tip-off from a 'Deal or No Deal' insider.
This is not the first time controversy has plagued Bertie. In 2001 he left Edmonds to pursue a career in Hollywood only to return a few months later.
