Saj won £50,000

Its Saj with the beautiful brown eyes, in fact beautiful everything...but she's married, although Saj said she 'got rid of him'. Her aim was to spend more time with her baby, which the money would allow her to do - personalising the game, is this a mistake?

Round one: £100, then Saj asked the audience to make loads of noise, Noel led the way, but the next box was £250,000 and the audience were again silenced. £500 in the third box, £20,000 in the fourth and finally £35,000. Two of the power five gone, Saj was talking it up but her eyes had lost a little of their shine. The banker's opening - smarmy - offer was £4000, and his advances were immediately rejected by the golden Saj.

Round two: £5, £1 and then the break. On returning her last box of the round was £75,000. A wry grin from Saj, always sailing through stormy seas and did not expect this to be a sea cruise. The banker's offer was £6000, and with little consideration Saj rejected it.

Round three: £750, £10,000, at this stage 6 red, 6 blue, the final box of the round was £50. Saj showed no sign of nerves, while the banker rattled off a series of puns about the Eurovison song contest (no, I don't know why either),eventually he offered £9000. The contestants said 'No Deal' but with reservations, and Saj said 'No Deal' without any.

Round four: Saj begged for blues but the first box of this round was £3000 - still ok. £250 was welcomed with a loud cheer, and then Noel called for a break while he fiddled with Saj's rear-end, claiming that he was helping with her microphone transmitter. After the break Saj was 'drawn to box 15', but nearly went for box 7 - she setled on 15, and th audience went mad at the sight of £10. A strong round, leaving 3 blues and five reds. The banker's offer was £13,000 with the rather clever observation that if rejected and things went wrong, 'the sound of silence would be deafening'. The banker phoned again. Sakila, Saj's sister came down, she could clearly be heard saying 'you have to go for this, you need to take the offer'. Saj said 'no deal', explaining that she always went against her sister's avice.

Round five: 10p, Shakila praying with her head in her hands but it was to no avail £100,000 just appeared, and then the £5000. The banker brusquely offered £5000, she'd just lost £8000. Saj called her sister again, this time the advice was to go ahead, and this time she took her sister's advice. The crowd cheered, her sister returned to her seat and breathed out. Tension coming now.

Round six: £1000, 50p and the tension climbing, Saj repeating '1p' over and over, and then the 1p actually appeared in the last box of the round. The crowd were trying to take the roof down by this point. A choice now between £15,000, £50,000 and the banker's offer, which turned out to be £25,000. Lots of air being sucked through teeth - a real dilema.

Saj stated that she was sure she held the £50,000, what was she going to do?

She said 'No Deal', an outstanding call!

No smile, but her eyes were positively gleaming. Saj called her sister down for the third time, she decided not to swap and as they clung together, the contestants all holding hands, they watched as Noel opened the lid and revealed...£50,000. Everyone went wild, eyes welling up all over the place. As Noel said, 'a dream game'.
