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.

Noel under fire

I have just found this appalling report by journalist Rachel Cooke, which was published by The Observer in January. I think its worth reading just to see how wrong this woman got it. She didn't understand the show, her memories of Noel Edmonds are of Mutlti-Coloured Swap Shop and Noel's House Party, which she presumeably watched as a child. She didn't understand that Noel presented these shows from a base of decades of broadcasting into the nation's breakfast kitchens on radio - most people were in on the jokes.

Noel proves daily that he is in a class of his own, and when Terry Wogan finally hangs up his headphones the BBC are going to have to grovel like Jack Straw to win back Terry's natural replacement.

Anonymous (I wish everybody would give names to their comments, I am not going to track you down and murder your children...probably), I have reviewed the article by Rachel Cooke again following your comment above, and taken out certain phrases from my orginal post as a consequence, I had written in haste - I apologise to both Ms Cooke, and worms.

The article is still, in my opinion, very poor, giving a greater insight into Ms Cooke's immature personality than it does about its purported subject.
