Emma Jane Noble (born 26 June 1971) is an Englishmarker model and actress. From 1998 to 2004 she was married to James Major, the son of former Prime Minister John Major.

Noble was born and brought up in Sidcupmarker, Kentmarker. She worked as a catwalk model for John Rocha and Ghost before turning to commercial and Glamour modelling work and became for four years known as hostess on Bruce Forsyth's game show The Price Is Right.

Noble met James Major at a party at Londonmarker's Café Royalmarker in February 1998. The couple became engaged three months later, and were married later the same year in the chapel of the Houses of Parliamentmarker in Londonmarker. The reception was held at The Dorchestermarker and earned them a £400,000 deal from Hello! magazine. After her marriage she became known as Emma Major. The couple have a son, Harrison ("Harry") (born in July 2000), who was later diagnosed as autistic.

Her acting work includes appearances in Crossroads playing Suzie Samson, Jonathan Creek, Casualty, Dennis Potter's Cold Lazarus, the Britishmarker film The Truth About Love and the UKmarker stage tour of Popcorn by Ben Elton. In 2005, Noble appeared on the Five reality TV programme The Farm, and gave her fee to the National Autistic Society. In 2008 she was made Global Ambassador for the National Autistic Society; in this role she headed the highly successful national campaign "Think differently about Autism".

The marriage ended in an acrimonious divorce in 2004, with Emma accusing James of "unreasonable behaviour". Emma was granted a "quickie" decree nisi on the uncontested grounds that her husband had behaved in such a way that she could not reasonably be expected to continue living with him.

Since the divorce, Noble has been romantically linked with the son of Status Quo's Rick Parfitt, and with South African-born actor Tony Schiena.

She is also good friends with Simon Cowell.
