Oh dear, even after Katy's hint of Noel's shirt choices he still pulls out another LOUD one!! Noel talks about the horrible games of the past few days, and hopes for the turnaround in fortunes, he also mentions how near we are to the 300th show and also the long absence of the £250,000....
It's Alan's turn to take the walk of wealth today and he does so with box 6, Noel remembers to shake Alan's hand today after forgetting yesterday!! Alan has no lucky numbers or a system, we get to see a few pics of his wife and family, Alan wants LOADS OF NOISE from the pilgrims!!!!!
13 - £35,000 Groans and yet another high one from Anna-Marie

4 - £250,000 BIG groans from everywhere
Noel asks what Alan has in his pocket!! Alan is playing with some change in there!!!
17 - £10
1 - £250
Noel says to Alan 'you didn't want to win the £250,000 did you?!' - Alan says 'of course I did that is why I am here!!' We learn that Alan is a keen fisherman, the banker comments on the loss of the £250,000 and he thinks that all the contestants are terrified now that the big numbers always go early - They all shout NO!!! He then offers £5,000, Alan says NO DEAL.
22 - £100 Big cheers and noise for the blue
7 - £3,000 Noel starts to mimic Alan prowling the stage and gets a few of the pilgrims laughing along with him!!
9 - 1p The pilgrims go wild!!!!
Alan says he is happy with the board, Noel asks if Alan won a lot of money would he buy loads of maggots!!! Alan says he makes his own flies, Noel asks the banker if he does his own flies!! The banker then offers £9,200, Alan says it's a respectful offer, he then goes to Mary and she says it's a good offer Mr Banker but she'll talk to Alan about it after the next round. Neil creeps to the banker and says he needs a word with him after a few comments in the bar last night, the banker calls and talks to Neil! Neil almost grasses up a few contestants and then says he looks at the banker as a father figure!!!! The banker says he now looks at Neil as his son!!! And his future offers are growing by the minute!!!!!
After all the Neil and banker banter Alan says NO DEAL.
20 - 10p BIG cheers as newbie 'Shed' delivers
21 - £15,000 Groans that time......
Alan looks at the terminator and Alan dismisses the label that Noel has given him!
16 - £50,000 Alan should have listened to Noel!
Alan tries to pick another box and Noel shouts HOLD IT!!!!! Noel says he should listen to him more often as he wouldn't have hit the £50,000 last round!! The banker doesn't know who he likes more Alasdair or Neil now! He then offers £9,200, he sticks. Noel goes to Mary for her advice that she promised, Mary says to think hard about this offer as it's a good offer for the board. Alan says it's a tricky offer, Noel asks if he feels lucky, Alan says NO DEAL.
18 - 50p BIG cheers and applause
2 - £100,000 Groans for the highest remaining red
5 - £50
Big relief all round there, Alan says it's not a bad board as there are still some very good amounts there. The banker agrees and says yes there are still lots of blues there!!! He then offers £7,500, Alan asks Helen and she warns about other bad games where people have gone on and ended up chasing money. Mary says it's a VERY high risk board and to be careful, Ian says that £75,000 would be the biggest fish he has ever caught and he would be tempted to go on. After a LOT of thought Alan says DEAL. Noel says lots of people will be thinking he dealt too soon, Alan says that's the nature of the game.....
Round 5 - Proveout round
8 - £75,000 BIG CHEERS and the perfect first box
19 - £5
11 - £1,000
The banker would have offered £5,000 and Alan again says he would have dealt.
Round 6 - Proveout round
12 - £500
15 - £1 gasps around the studio
14 - £750
That would have been the perfect round! Although Alan would have never got that far to produce it, the last 2 remaining values are £10,000 and £20,000. The banker would have offered £14,500, Alan again says he would have dealt.
Noel opens Alan's box 6 and reveals £20,000! Box 10 contains the £10,000.
Alan says he is happy with the result, but he does look disappointed.
