NOEL Edmonds has stepped in to deliver hot meals after the WHT highlighted the service's plight.
The Deal or No Deal star now fronts Noel's HQ where he aims to "make a difference to Britain".
So when he read in the WHT that 180 of Welwyn Hatfield's most vulnerable elderly and disabled missed out on their dinner - for some their only hot food of the day - he sent in his team.
Kingfisher Caterers, based in Brownfields, WGC, whipped up hot meals and celebrity presenter Gabby Roslin and chef Nancy Lam visited Woodside House in Bridge Road, WGC.

The vital Meals on Wheels service was axed on three days last week - Monday, Tuesday and Friday - due to health and safety fears.
Council chiefs said residents were warned by letter in mid-December if adverse weather hit, the service would not run.
Head of care service Dana Cox said: "Due to the severe weather conditions, it would have been dangerous to pursue this service.
"We have a duty of care to our drivers, some of whom are volunteers."
However, chief executive Michel Saminaden, his personal assistant, and other council office staff did volunteer to take hot meals out to those most in need.
