Noel says we are off again on our search for someone to win £250,000 in the dream factory and talks about Rachael's great win yesterday, he still mentions the missing £250,000 and it's got to be today!!
It's Alasdair's 'The Terminator' turn in the 'Crazy Chair' and he has box 6 today, he says Noel is looking very dapper today and Noel has a dig at Alasdair's shirt!!! Alasdair loves all sports and is a goalie, he says he is not superstitious and has no system today.
7 - £250,000 What a start for newbie Lyndsey!!!
9 - £35,000 Gasps all around
8 - £10,000 More gasps
12 - £250 Cheers for the first blue
21 - £50,000 OH WHAT says Noel
Noel can't believe the start and lets us hear the banker laughing down the phone!! The banker says he has his popcorn and cola and is watching the movie The Terminator! He makes an opening offer of £750, Alasdair says NO DEAL.
Noel mentions Gaz's game as inspiration for a turnaround
16 - £20,000 Gasps
15 - £1
Maggie wants to give Alasdair a cuddle before opening her box 22 - Noel wants a cuddle as well so Neil offers him one!!
22 - 50p
Noel is worried about Neil now, especially after the talk of him in the bath with the banker!! The banker says the board is awful at the moment and offers £2,750, Alasdair says it could have been a worse offer, but he is confident of an all blue round next and says NO DEAL.
10 - £5
19 - £50
4 - £100
Alasdair gets his all blue round and Noel says it's beginning to look like a half decent board now, the banker regards this next offer as a tester and offers £6,750. Noel goes to Ned for his opinion, he agrees it is a tester, Alasdair says NO DEAL.
Noel asks can he do an all blue again?
11 - 10p
14 - £10
Noel potentially jinxes it by saying that it's rare that we get 2 all blue rounds in a row and all the contestants and audience 'SHHHHH' Noel. Noel goes outside the studio to try and tell us this again as the contestants try to drown out his little speech!!!
18 - £1,000
Nearly an all blue round, so Noel's little speech didn't jinx the round for a change! The banker offers £10,750, Alasdair says NO DEAL.
Noel potentially jinxes the round again, and Alasdair picks up on it!
20 - £500
1 - £15,000 It's OK says Noel
Alasdair picks Steve's box next and Noel begs Steve on his knees to avoid the top 2 values! (Not that Steve has any influence over the value in his ox!)
5 - 1p
The banker calls very quickly and offers £17,750, Noel asks Ned for his opinion, he says he has a big red one in his box! Noel then asks a few contestants what they would do and it's a mixed reaction.
The banker calls back and Alasdair answers, he offers Alasdair 2 more amounts and asks what Alasdair would do, the offers are £20,000 and then £23,500. Alasdair says he will think about it and let the banker know, so the banker goes back to the original offer of £17,750.
Just as Noel asks the question of 'Deal or No Deal' the banker calls back and changes the offer to £20,000! Alasdair says NO DEAL.
2 - £100,000 Groans all around
3 - £3,000
13 - £750 Cheers and applause all around the studio
That final round leaves the board with £5,000 and £75,000 remaining, and it's a great turnaround for Alasdair. The banker says he has respect for Alasdair, but offers one of the other offers that Alasdair turned down last time! He offers £23,500, Alasdair says DEAL.
Noel opens Alasdair's box 6 and reveals £5,000, box 17 contains £75,000.
It's a fantastic result for Alasdair and a good turnaround after a very shaky start to the game.
