Noel Botham (23 January 1940 - 23 November 2012) was a British tabloid journalist and prolific author.
He wrote books on the love-life of Princess Margaret and the death of Diana, Princess of Wales (The Murder of Princess Diana), as well a series of books of obscure facts with the theme of "Useless Information", some of which was wildly erroneous; for example, "It would take 150 million years to drive a car to the sun" in The Totally Awesome Book of Useless Information. Also noted as a raconteur and publican, for many years he ran one of Soho's landmark pubs, The French House.
