Asim's Deal or No Deal Game Report

The Deal or No Deal logo needs a little encouragement from Noel to appear on the gameboard today, as it’s Friday the 13th!! It’s the last game of the current series today, as the show takes a summer break for a month, and it returns on Mon 13th August.

Hopefully we can go out on a high, and it won't be an unlucky Friday 13th!!! Noel talks about some of the milestones in season 2, the 500th show, and Laura's jackpot win of £250,000...

It’s Asim’s turn to take the walk of wealth today, and hopefully finish the season on a high, and he has box 4 today. Asim is a student and is studying computer networks... He believes that if you harm someone, then sometime in the future that action will come back and redeem itself against you, and also doing good will result in good things rewarding you. Asim is single and Noel tries his best to fix him up with someone in the audience... Asim says he is not prepared for today's game as he was convinced that Brian was playing today...

Round 1
12 - £1,000 Newbie Irene peers over her box, and Noel says they will need to get Rita's step for her so we will be able to see her in the future!
15 - 10p Asim gets excited with that, and Noel tells him to clam down as it's only the second box!!
2 - £50,000 Groans for that
1 - £50 More shouts from Asim
13 - £10

Noel asks Asim what he thinks of it, and Asim replies it's looking good. The banker asks all the contestants if they are looking forward to their summer holiday? They all shout YES... The banker then reveals that he has gifts for them all, and then 22 buckets and spades are brought out for them... They all have stickers on them and they have to peel them off, and underneath are all the amounts from the gameboard!!! The person with the £250,000 sticker wins a week for 2 on the Costa-Del-Sol, and Robert is the lucky winner of this prize… The person with 1p sticker wins a weekend for 2 in Weston-Super-Mare, and Jon is the lucky winner of this one… The Banker then makes his offer to Asim of £9,000, and Asim replies NO DEAL

Round 2
9 - £10,000
16 - £250 Robin's bucket amount matches his box amount!
Noel wonders if there is something in this, and if box 21 has the £250,000!! But Asim decides to pick box 21 next!!
21 - £20,000

Asim says that round did cause some damage, and Noel replies it wasn't that bad... The Banker offers £12,500… Asim says it's a lot of money, but there could be more in the game... Asim says NO DEAL

Noel puts on his ear-defenders as Asim goes into another bout of C'Mons

Round 3
5 - £750 Asim goes into another bout of C'mons
17 - £100,000
7 - £15,000 You like those reds says Noel - and it's another bucket match on the amounts!!

Noel shouts out C'Mon down the phone in case the banker feels left out!! The banker remembers the last game of season one when Giorgio won 1p, and wonders if season 2’s last game can repeat that result! He then offers £10,000… Asim says NO DEAL

Round 4
19 - 50p More shouts from Asim
10 - £3,000
18 - £35,000 That we did not want says Noel

Asim says that his fallback has gone now... But Noel remains positive and tells the banker that Asim is going to be the first male £250,000 winner... The Banker offers £13,000… Noel tells Asim that he is being tested now... Alan tells him much the same thing, and also that it's a good offer for the board. Asim says it is a good offer and he could do a lot with that amount of money, but it’s NO DEAL

Round 5
Noel talks about Asim's dream of being able to take his father back to visit his homeland, and really personalises the game now...
22 - £5,000
3 - £500
Noel really builds up the drama now for this next box...
20 - £100

Noel tells Asim it was brave to turn down that last offer, and this next decision will be tough... The Banker offers £31,000… You now have a big problem says Noel, as you have the potential to now go on to win £250,000... Vicky tells Asim that is a massive offer... Asim says DEAL

Noel turns to Asim and tells him that was the right call. Asim tells Noel that he will now take his father back to his homeland and place of birth.

Round 6 - Proveout round
6 - £1 It would have been fine says Noel
14 - £250,000 The studio and Asim go wild
8 - £5

It’s time for The Banker with 1p and £75,000 remaining, and Noel says you are OK at the moment, as The Banker would have offered £18,000

Noel opens Asim’s box 4 and reveals 1p
Box 11 contains the £75,000

The banker calls straight back and Asim asks to speak to him, so Noel hands him the phone, and Asim says tough luck and better luck next time!! Asim then reveals that the banker told him to get lost!! But The Banker has one last generous offer to finish off the season, and Robin and Stevie both get £500 because their buckets matched their box amounts…

Well that’s the end of Season 2 of Deal or No Deal, and it’s certainly been a rollercoaster shows with more members of the 1p club, and the £250,000 finally being won by Laura.

The show returns to our screens again on Monday 13th August, and we’ll be back again with our daily reports and updates.

Maria's Deal or No Deal Game Report

Noel talks about last week’s games and says the banker saved himself some money last week with the way the games played out. He also hopes today's game will be better than the last few Sundays, where there have been some low wins.

It’s Maria’s turn to take the walk of wealth today, and she does so with box 7. Maria goes the opposite way around the desk to most contestants... She has her husband in the audience for support today, and we get to see pics of her children. She tells us it was real shock when she was told she was having twins, and it was a bigger shock to her husband! Number 7 is Maria's lucky number, and she then reveals that 3 is her other lucky number (will there be a swap offer at some point!)

Round 2
14 - £50
5 - £15,000
17 - 50p

Noel says it felt as though the game was a bit was a bit of roller-coaster, but it seems OK now. The banker says he doesn't like the way this game is working out, and offers £15,000… Maria says she is not ready to go yet, and it’s NO DEAL

The banker calls straight back and tells Maria to watch it, and he thinks that quick response was a lack of respect!!!

Round 3
18 - £75,000 ARGGHH No says Noel
21 - £1,000
9 - 10p

The banker quickly calls and offers £15… The low offer is because the banker thinks that Maria dismissed the last offer too quickly and didn’t show any respect!! Maria says NO DEAL

The banker calls back as Noel and Maria chat about her not respecting the last offer! Noel answers the phone and tells him that he will be with him in a minute and hangs up!!!

The banker calls back again, and wants to negotiate with Maria, so Noel hands her the phone... He tells Maria that they will wipe the slate clean now...

Round 4
19 - £100

Round 5
8 - £20,000
13 - £35,000
Now it's getting scary says Noel
16 - £750 Big cheers for the blue....

That was a bit close says Noel, and he wonders if the banker will punish her now... This is an interesting offer now says Noel... It's £15,000, but it's twins... The offer is £30,000… The banker tries some mind games by referring to Maria's twins in the offer, but Maria says what about her daughter as well... Maria's husband joins her at the pound table, and they have a little chat... Maria says she would be disappointed if she dealt and the £250,000 was in her box...

Maria is ready for the question, but the banker calls back!! He tells Maria that there is a 60% of taking out the £250,000 in the next round, and he then offers an extra £5,000 for her daughter... New offer is £35,000… Maria says NO DEAL

Round 6

The fallback has gone now says Noel....

It’s time for The Banker with £3,000 and £250,000 remaining… This is scary that it is the same end board as Laura says Noel... The banker reminds Noel of what he offered Laura, and he asks Maria if she can remember, she replies that it was £45,000… The Banker offers £25,000 for each of her children... The offer is £75,000

Noel says the banker is terrified, hence the larger offer... Maria says she would be upset if she blew the £250,000, but it's also a lot of money... Maria says DEAL

Noel says you would have got the swap, but Maria says she would never have swapped...

Noel opens Maria’s box 7 and reveals £3,000

Mike's Deal or No Deal Game Report

Noel wonders if we can get 3 in row today, and get another game where the maximum is gained out of the game...

It’s Mike’s turn to take the walk of wealth today, and he does so with box 9. Mike is from Cheshire and reveals that he is a nightmare to live with, as he likes to listen to very loud music! It's mainly heavy metal music, and Noel asks him to tell him a few of the bands, Noel claims to know them all well!! Mike has arranged a festival in the past, and Noel says with his street cred he could help Mike pull off another successful one... Mike reveals his very, very clever system, and it is that he has no system!!

Round 1
1 - £750
15 - £10
6 - £15,000 Newbie Steve
3 - £75,000 Groans for one of the power 5
22 - £35,000 Arrgghhh goes Noel

The round started with so much promise says Noel... The banker says he doesn't know how to pitch any offer at Mike, as he doesn't know the cost of goat's blood!! He says it would be too obvious to give Mike the number of the beast, so he's giving him it's neighbour!!! He offers £6,667… Mike says NO DEAL

Round 2
16 - £50
14 - £3,000
Noel asks as about Mike's band, and Mike turns to him and says Scumface - which Noel takes offence to!! Mike reveals that his band has 2 members, but is really a trio as the bass player is a cardboard cutout!
8 - £5,000

Noel asks the banker if he is enjoying the game, and he tells Noel that he was in a folk band, and he played the loot!!! He then offers £10,000… Mike says that's ten grand that I could take away with me right now, and it's a lot of money... Noel asks if Mike is going to be the first person ever to walk at the second offer? Mike says the game could easily go either way here.... Mike says NO DEAL

Mike says the audience is very good looking, but the centre is more lively than the edges, and Noel retorts it's a bit like your hair!!!!!

Round 3
11 - £50,000 Groans for that one
17 - £20,000 The safety net is gone now says Noel
4 - 10p

Noel tells Mike that he will be punished now for that round, and he can't work out how much of a gambler he is. Mike tells him he has never really gambled in the real world, so he doesn't know either. The banker says this offer will require courage now... He offers £11,000

Mike says that is good considering the last round, and it's a lot of money, certainly more than he's ever had... Mike gets advice that the money on offer is real money that he can walk away with now. There is more advice that it is certainly a gambling board, but also a good round now would see a nice increase in the offer... Mike is taking his time over this decision.... Mike says NO DEAL… Mike says he can't believe he just said that...

Round 4
5 - 50p Big cheers
18 - 1p More cheers
Mike tells everyone to go quiet for Norman's 1p trumpet…
Noel builds up the drama for the last box of the round...
19 - £1

The studio goes wild for the all blue round… Noel says you've never had £11,000, so by that logic you've never had £16,000, or £18,000, or £20,000 or £21,000, and how about £26,000! The banker’s offer is £26,000… Lynn tells Mike that the banker is scared now, hence the offer... Norman tells Mike that this is the Dream factory and he now has the chance to make his dreams come true.... Jon tells him that if he keeps the top 2 in play for another round, he could potentially double that offer... Noel asks him what are the odds of keeping either one of the top 2 in play... Mike says he doesn't want to be trapped with just either of the top 2 remaining... Brian says he has come this far, and he would go all the way... Mike says DEAL

Round 5 - Proveout round
7 - £1,000 That would have been wonderful says Noel
13 - £500 NO, NO says Noel
2 - £5 Perfection says Noel

Noel says that £26,000 has worked a treat for the banker yet again... The banker says tough luck Scumface!!! He would have offered £46,000

Round 6 - Proveout round
12 - £250,000 Huge relief around the studio
10 - £100,000 Excellent says Noel and imagine how you would be feeling if you were still in the game!!
21 - £100

It’s time for The Banker with £250 and £10,000 remaining, and he would have offered £2,600…

Noel opens Mike’s box 9 and reveals £250
Box 20 contains the £10,000

Noel reveals that next week is the final week before the summer break...

Usha's Deal or No Deal Game Report

Noel talks about Dan's game yesterday and how he played the perfect game. He discusses how the offer of £10,000 is working for the banker lately, and advises the contestants to watch out for that tactic!

It’s Usha’s turn to take the walk of wealth today, and she does so with 9. Usha has her husband in the audience for support today, and Noel talks about how she arrived in the country years ago with only £3 in her pocket, and how the weather must have been a huge shock for her, she replies it was as she arrived in December! Noel says Usha is already in the hall of fame as the person to bring the most good luck charms with her! Everyone gets a red mark put on their forehead, and Usha explains the meaning of the mark for them all.

Round 1
Usha goes with 13 first, as she doesn't feel the number is unlucky
13 - £250,000 Now you know why we think it's unlucky says Noel
5 - £35,000
10 - 50p
8 - £500
4 - £750

Usha thinks there is still one more box to go in the round! The banker talks about sheriff Usha as she had the badge yesterday in the Independence Day special… He offers £6,100… Usha tells Noel NO DEAL even before he asks the question, and this confuses both Noel and the banker who phones to find out what is happening!! Usha says NO DEAL

Round 2
14 - £250
19 - £100
2 - 10p Newbie Jon

A nice all blue round for Usha… The banker is feeling left out, as he is the only one who hasn't got his mark from Usha, and she tells him that he will have to come out and show his face first!! The Banker offers £7,500… Usha says that is not much, especially after an all blue round, and she reckons he is playing mind games with her... Usha says NO DEAL

Round 3
18 - £5 That's 7 blues in a row now says Noel, and one more she will be the first lady to get 8 in a row.
21 - £75,000 Groans for that
1 - £20,000

That was disappointing says Noel, and Usha replies that there is no point in crying over spilt milk... The banker wants to thank Norman for the £75,000! He then offers
… Usha chooses her next box before Noel even gets the chance to ask the question! The banker calls and says he is confused again!!! Usha says NO DEAL

Round 4
15 - £50,000 OH NO that isn't what we wanted says Noel
It's a one-box game for the mega money now says Noel, as the £100,000 is very exposed...
22 - £1,000
11 - £10,000

You are a good reader of the game says Noel, and he asks Usha what he thinks the banker will do. Usha thinks he will stick again, but Noel is not so sure... The banker loves the way the game changes as it plays out, a moment ago Usha was on a long run of blues, and now it's changed to a run of reds!! He offers £7,500… Usha is correct in her prediction... Alan says this is a difficult one to decide on, and it will depend on her attitude to gambling. Usha's husband says it's up to her how she plays the game now... Usha says NO DEAL

Round 5
3 - £5,000
16 - 1p Big cheers and applause for that one
17 - £15,000

You have created quite a finale here says Noel, and he thinks this next offer is unprecedented!! The Banker sticks again! He offers £7,500… Usha says it is now a gamble board... She goes to her husband, who replies it's very dangerous... Mike tells her there is a chance of a lot of money on offer, and she only came to the country with £3 and see what she made for herself with that, so even with a £1 win who knows what she could do… Usha says DEAL

Round 6 - Proveout round
We have to find the £100,000 now says Noel
20 - £1 It would have been the perfect start says Noel
12 - £50 Groans for that one
6 - £100,000 There are cheers all around

It’s time for The Banker with £10 and £3,000 remaining, and he says if that last box were £3,000 he would have offered £7,500!! He would have offered £750

Noel opens box 9 and reveals £10
Box 7 contains the £3,000

Dan's Deal or No Deal Game Report

Independence day in the dream factory, and everyone is dressed as cowboys and cowgirls. The boxes all have American flags decorating them, and there is also bunting draped around the studio. Noel tells us the banker started his career on Wall St where he learnt to become mean and nasty!! Hence the celebrations today... Noel talks about the contestants and their dreams, and how newbie Annie wants to swim with polar bears.

The theme tune to Rawhide accompanies the name selection process and today's player is Dan, who has box 11. Daniel "Dan" Mountford comes from London and is a radio engineer on the London Underground. He had previously been a telecommunications technician for the army for 9 years and fancied a career change and has worked with trains for 8 months so far, but doesn't like his job and would like to go on a sailing course to become a skipper, which is his dream that hopefully can help be fulfilled today. He has his parents, Ray and Tina, with him in the audience.

He believes in luck and destiny and has always wanted to appear on a gameshow, but was never confident to go on them, as you had to answer questions, and didn't want to appear dim! But with Deal or No Deal as he only has to open boxes he decided to give it a go... Dan reveals he has had a dream that he won over £100k on DOND!!

Round 1
14 - £100k - Groans and Noel talks about Dan's dream
4 - £3,000
2 - £50 Cheers
16 - £35k Noel says Dan likes these reds
3 - £500

The banker calls and says "Howdy partners"!! He tells Noel he celebrates the 4th of July as 3 of his 4 divorces have come through on this date, and he goes on to tell Noel that he has written a poem to read out. Noel pulls a poem out from the pound table and reads it out, it tells us how the banker is lonely and he hopes to get married. He also manages to sneak in a desperate Dan line!! The banker says Dan will be joining the 1p club today, and then makes an Opening offer of £5,000... Dan says it's a decent offer, but he doesn't want to be the first person to deal at the first... Dan says NO DEAL

Round 2
21 - £250,000 Groans for that one, and the £250,000 icon is a stick of dynamite today and explodes!!
Mike - 13 - £100
Robert - 15 - £10

Dan says he's feeling a bit better now, but the banker still has all of his power 5 left, and Dan's lost 3 of his already. Noel says he had a feeling the banker would be in a dominant mood today. The banker talks about "Desperate Dan", and jokes about Mike's Mohican haircut underneath his hat, and how he is the only person who can play cowboys and Indians himself!! He says Dan's "gotta go dahhn dahhn"... The Banker offers £2,500... Groans echo around the dream factory says Noel... Dan says NO DEAL

Round 3
5 - £1 At last one of his power 5 and a decent start to the round says Noel
12 - £20,000 Noel says that's not what we wanted
Norman says not to forget the Wall Street crash and Noel says with his accent and his hat that it doesn't work.
20 - £750 More cheers for that one

The banker says to remember that there was a Norman conquest!! He says put them in cowboy hats and they all think they are gunslingers!! The banker then wants to know if Usha wants to look at his Magnificent 7!!! The offer is then revealed to be the first two added together £7,500... Noel says it's a tester, and Dan replies that he came here with the intention of winning more, and it's NO DEAL

Dan explains his rather confusing system that he dreamt about, which totally confuses Noel!! Dan also reveals that in his dream Noel was wearing a dress!! Noel decides to quickly move on!!

Round 4
22 - £10k You do love nibbling at those reds says Noel
9 - 50p Cheers and applause for that one
Noel calls a break, and when we return Noel appears wearing a glittering silver dress, with his trousers rolled up and red and blue socks!!! He asks Dan if that was his dream!! Dan replies it was, and he might have to stay in that until the game is over!!
10 - £75k Noel says he thinks Alex finds him attractive and Alex says deliciously attractive.

Noel then takes his frock off, as it's not helped at all...

The banker calls Noel "Noeline" and Noel says, "No it's Jolene"! He asks Noel to be careful with the dress as he only recently got it washed. The banker says it was an expensive round, and says Dan's dream is now over... Banker offers £3,500... Dan says NO DEAL

Round 5
19 - 10p Norman gives us another of his trumpet fanfares!!
Dan asks if the lucky wig can be brought out as it helped in Michelle's game, but Noel can't find it as Brian still has if!! Noel tells him to put it on then!!!
1 - £250 More cheers
Everyone wants the 1p and the BLUE CHANTS ARE BACK!!!!!!
6 - 1p HUGE cheers

Noel says the banker now knows it's not Indepennydence Day and Dan could be going away with as much as £50,000.... Just like Michelle's game Noel tells the banker, once we get the wig, we know we're motoring... The banker wants to set fire to the wig with Brian's head still in it!! Reminded of yesterday, the banker says this is a gambler's board and this is a gambler's offer of £10,000... Dan asks for a sweep as to what he should do and it's a mixture of deals and no deals, about half and half. He asks people to stand up in the audience and very few people say he should deal, although his mum stands up to say deal. Dan says DEAL

Round 6
18 - £1k It would've been great, people clap, and Noel asks why they're clapping!
17 - £5 NO, the second component of the perfect round says Noel
8 - £50k - YES says Noel and everyone cheers

Noel opens Dan's box 11 to reveal £5,000
Box 7 contains the £15k

It’s Sophie’s turn to take the walk of wealth today, and she does so with box 5. Sophie's file says she is incredibly clumsy, and Noel asks for some examples, and she replies that every day is a challenge!!! She has her boyfriend and friend in the audience for support today. She has a little Japanese figure with her for luck, and says it's worth a fortune, about £250,000!!

Another trumpet from Norman for the 1p! Noel tells the banker that the 1p going changes everything now, and the banker replies that the £250,000 came to the pound table in box 5 yesterday so it’s a remote chance it will be there again, and Noel retorts that there is no reason why it can't be in there again. Sophie talks to the banker and tells him the same thing, that box 5 can still have the £250,000 again today, she also says he sounds dirty!!

This is a difficult one to call says Noel, and asks Sophie what she thinks the next offer will be, and Sophie replies £10,000. The banker calls and offers £10,000… Noel apologies as he thinks he probably helped prompt that offer!! Sophie says that is a lot of money, and Noel replies that so is £100,000. Sophie says she doesn't want to go home with nothing, and then goes to her friend, who says she would deal. Rossano tells her it's a gamblers board now, and asks if she is a gambler.

It’s Jon’s turn to take the walk of wealth today, and he does so with box 5. Jon is a casino supervisor, and reveals that in the past he sold up everything and moved to Spain with his partner. Jon shows us a few pics of his family, and one shows his brother, who now lives in Australia who he would like to visit. Jon then demonstrates his coffin moneybox that he has brought along....

Noel says that round was shaping up really well, but it's not how you start, it's how you finish... The banker says the freezer defrosted yesterday!! He likes the coffin bank that Jon has brought along, as it reminds him of the pilgrims, in that they need a bolt of electricity through them!!!

20 - £15,000

Noel then says we don't need the banker and we will just play on and open all the boxes and see what is left at the end!! The banker apologises and so the game continues... He offers £10,000… Jon says that is a good offer, but NO DEAL

Round 3
Jon tells Noel that if you add up all the numbers on a roulette wheel it comes to 666! Noel asks him what all the boxes add up to? Jon replies 253, but Noel is not really sure, as he has never bothered to add them up!!
14 - £750
4 - 10p
21 - £250

A great all blue round, and Noel says things are turning now. The banker says that Jon has livened up the pilgrims now... He offers £20,000

That has put the cat amongst the pigeons says Jon. He goes to his partner for her opinion, and he wants a kiss, but Noel says you aren't getting one from me!! Jon gets advice from the wings, and then says I think it's time for a bit of courage. Noel tells him that the banker always fears a calculated gambler, with a good run of boxes... Jon says NO DEAL

The banker calls back before the next round! He tells Noel that he was scared which is why he offered the £20,000, and he is now terrified!! He wants Jon to take the next offer... Both Noel and Jon are confused as to why he is saying this....

Round 4
12 - £10,000
19 - £100,000 OHHHHHH goes Noel
We are right on the edge of a one-box game now says Noel. Jon decides to call upon one of his lucky numbers next.
18 - £3,000

A red round, and a rotten red round says Noel... He then points out that we have to go right back to the end of March when the £250,000 was last on the pound table. The banker says he still can't believe that Jon turned down the last offer. Noel tells Jon to think really carefully about this next offer... The offer is £20,000

He's giving you a second chance says Noel... Alan tells Jon that unless he is going to go all the way, the banker has now offered him a lifeline... The banker calls back and Jon answers, he tells us that the banker confirms it is a lifeline... Jon says DEAL

8 - £1,000 That would have been good says Noel
13 - £35,000
You've got to find the £250,000 says Noel
22 - £1

Noel wonders if the £250,000 is sitting on the pound table. The banker tells Noel he would have been tempted to have stuck at £20,000 for the third time... He would have offered £25,500… Noel does his squander routine

Round 6 - Proveout round
1 - £5,000
16 - £50 NO shouts Noel, you have one last chance now...

It’s time for The Banker with £5 and £250,000 remaining. OH MY WORD goes Noel, you are not going to want to hear this next offer.... The Banker would have offered £75,500. Think what you could have done with that if you had a little more self-belief says Noel. Jon says he would have dealt for that offer...

Frazer's Deal or No Deal Game Report

A much more casual Noel introduces the show today, and he has to sit down as he is emotionally drained after Friday's show! He talks about how the opening round on the 500th show cost the banker with his offer of £500 and champagne for the contestants!!

It’s Frazer’s turn to take the walk of wealth today, and he does so with box 20. Noel says that Frazer is unique as he is the only contestant to hold his audition actually on the show! He refers back to Patrick's game where he was in the audience and got to speak to the banker about one of his offers, and we get to see the clip on the game-board. Frazer tells us why he is known as Frazer now and not Sean... We get to see a few family pics, and Frazer introduces us to his mum, sister and fiancĂ© who are all in the audience for support today. Noel tells us a story about the biggest risk Frazer has taken, but then lets Frazer's mum continue it. She tells us how she discovered he used to sneak out of the house through his bedroom window late at night, until she found out and lamped him one!!!

Frazer remains positive
6 - £5,000
14 - £5
2 - 10p

Frazer says it's ok at the moment, and it is still a strong board. Noel tells the banker he is very good, and asks him if he enjoyed writing out all those £500 cheques yesterday!! The banker reckons Frazer is super cool and is thinking of making a sub-zero offer... He then offers £900… The banker is convinced Frazer will be the next member of the 1p club!! Frazer says NO DEAL

Round 2
13 - 50p
15 - £100
This is looking very good says Noel, and asks Frazer to find the 1p
10 - £250

Not the 1p, but an all blue round

Noel tells the banker that Frazer will not be the next member of the 1p... Noel then reveals the banker’s offer is £900!! Frazer says he can handle the mind games from the banker! Noel then reveals the true offer, which is £10,900… Frazer says NO DEAL

Round 3
8 - £50,000 Groans
This still feels good says Noel
21 - £10
7 - 1p

Now that is great says Noel, as the banker has based his whole game around that 1p. Noel tells the banker he was wrong in his prediction... The Banker offers £12,500… Noel says the banker is showing respect with that offer, and Jon backs that up.... Frazer says NO DEAL

Round 4
1 - £35,000 Some groans for that.
Noel says that there are still 2 monster sums out there
3 - £10,000
Frazer tuts a few times, and Noel asks Skippy what he's thinking!!
4 - £750

Noel says the banker will make a big song and dance about the £35,000 going in that round, but goes on to say that the £100,000 is still out there. The banker now says that Frazer has the £1!! He offers £13,700… The is a very muted reaction to that offer... Frazer asks the pilgrims what they think, and they all reply NO DEAL

Frazer is just about to answer the question, and the banker calls back and says with all of Frazer's language he will have to punish Frazer!! He hints at taking £2,000 off!!!! Noel says the new offer is now... £15,700… Frazer's mum joins him at the pound table to help out... Frazer goes to the pilgrims again... Frazer says NO DEAL

Round 5
18 - £75,000 OH NO shouts Noel...
22 - £500
Don't touch the £100,000 says Noel
11 - £100,000 OH NO says Noel

That was the round we didn't want says Noel, however you can still win £20,000... The Banker offers £1,700… What a crash says Noel... Frazer says NO DEAL

Round 6
16 - £1,000
12 - £20,000 NO, NO, NO says Noel
19 - £3,000

It’s time for The Banker with £1 and £50 remaining… OH NO goes Noel, 2 disastrous rounds!! Not the way to start the month… The banker makes a final offer of £17… Frazer says NO DEAL

Noel opens Frazer’s box 20 and reveals £1
Box 5 with newbie Karen contains the £50
