Welcome to donduk. A refuge for those who enjoy Deal or No Deal, the hit Channel 4 gameshow hosted by Noel Edmonds. The award winning gameshow Deal or No Deal has become a big hit for Channel 4 and marks a sensational return to our screens of Noel Edmonds.

Deal or No Deal is enjoyed my millions of viewers daily, where the contestants battle with The Banker to try and win a jackpot of £250,000. Here at donduk you will find full daily reports of each show, as well Deal or No Deal news and specials. Deal or No Deal although initially appearing very simple in format of just opening a few boxes for the chance to win some big money prizes, actually has some potentially complex decisions to be made at points throughout the show, the contestants occasionally try complex or simple gameplay in an attempt to give them an edge in beating the Banker.

Hit parade - chart 10

Unbelievably Pat is pulling away from the other runners, increasing her lead by a couple of percentage points over the last week. This probably reflects the terrible games that we have witnessed over the last week - although Pat too had a very bad game. Another name from beyond the horizon is Lucy, who has had a resurgence of support and is now back in second. I expected Morris to be in the lead by now, instead his star is waning, and Noel should have regained third place by next week. Amazingly, no-one has entered or left the top ten over the last week, and remember, votes older than four weeks are removed from the poll.

1. Pat (Pat)
2. Lucy (Morris)
3. Morris (Lucy)
4. Noel (Massimo)
5. Massimo (Noel)
6. Dave (Banker)
7. Banker (Kirsty)
8. Kirsty (Simon)
9. Raj (Raj)
10. Simon (Dave)

Was just looking through the list and noticed that sweet little Smiler is listed variously as Dave, Dave W, Smiler, Smiler Dave and everything in between.

Do you have any means of aggregating them, especially when people are known by a surname initial as well?

Hi Steve

Often the same person is referred to by different names, by people who are trying to vote for the person more than once per day - so the result of not aggregating does not affect the real result, and I remove such entries on a regular basis. Also I do aggregate the votes regularly, unfortunately this is a manual process and so I only do it once a week. The alternative to all this would be to have a drop down combo box containing all the possible names, but as this would also require daily upkeep, it is easier to do what I am currently doing.
