Noel's HQ was a British television show for Sky1. A one-off pilot episode was transmitted on 14 September 2008 and a full 5-part series was broadcast from 17 January to 14 February 2009.

Sky1's autumn 2008 season saw Edmonds host Noel's HQ, a new live entertainment show with a philanthropic purpose, with his fees going to a charitable trust.[1][2] This was later developed into a series. The show received negative reviews.[3][4] Sky edited a repeat broadcast after Edmonds launched an extended verbal attack on a council press officer.[5] In March 2009 Sky1 announced the cancellation of the show.[6]
