Noakes is not John's birth name - he disliked his original surname and so at the age of 17 changed it after admiring Alfie Noakes, a big band trumpeter - who was later to become his stepfather. John Noakes real birth name is John Bottomley.
30 June 2015: After a ten hour search John was located by a police helicopter crew in a strawberry field not far from his Majorcan home. He was in a bad way, but not with any life-threatening injuries. His wife Vicky had reported him missing after he went for a walk from their home in Andraxt. The TV presenter has apparently been suffering from Alzheimers for some years.
