Still feels a little strange watching on a Sunday evening, but at least it doesn't clash with other programmes and will probably attract a few more viewers who would otherwise not see the show. There was some careful editing at the start to cut-out Noel's welcome to the Saturday show, he YET again mentions the lack of the £250,000 not appearing on the 'pound table'.
It’s Alex’s turn at the ‘Pound table’ today, he has box 11, we hear that Alex has the nickname 'Noddy' due to his similarity in ear size! - Noel says that rings a bell!! Alex has his dad in the audience for support today, we also see a few pics.

Alex says he has been very honest while on the wings with his advice to the contestants. There is a little edit slip where Alex talks about Susannah's game yesterday! rather than Friday's game.

22 - £3,000
A nice round and Alex agrees by saying it's going well at the moment, the banker thinks this offer will turn Noddy into Mr Wobbly Man!!! He makes an offer of £17,500. Alex says that's a good offer and Noel says it's a very good offer. Alex goes to Jeff who says it's a good offer but it's also a strong board. Alex says NO DEAL
Noel potentially jinxes' the round by saying there have been loads of disasters following a nice high offer!!!

Noel asks if Alex's (Noddy's) car is key start or button start! The banker thinks that Alex will not risk playing to the end and potentially leave with nothing, he offers £7,500. Alex calls his dad down for some advice and then says NO DEAL
