Noel welcomes us all to the dream factory and a VERY revved up bunch of pilgrims!! He talks about how everyone is hyped up since Sarah has done some amazing predictions in almost every game since Laura’s big win and if only the contestants had more courage they would have won so much more.
It’s Bunney’s turn to take the walk of wealth and he hops his way to the crazy chair with box 5 and a carrot in his mouth!!! Bunney welcomes us to his game! He is a church organist and Noel asks why he has a carrot sticking out of a boot on his box!! It's his lucky carrot and also a lucky boot from his late grandmother in which she used to keep money. Noel shows Bunney's card from Sarah and it shows Bunney with box 5!! Can Sarah do it again? Have fun Bun says Noel...
Bunney has an ambition and he asks if he can do Noel's intro that he does at the start of the show, Noel allows him as it's Bunney's show. Bunney does it and asks Bunney or No Bunney

What a relief says Bunney and poor Noel doesn't know what to do as Bunney puts his arm around him!!! Noel says I wouldn't be surprised if the banker has gone home!! Bunney says he has a song for the banker and the banker can't wait for it. Bunney starts the song and Noel stops Bunney telling him to think carefully for the rhyme for BANKER!! Luckily Bunney finds the word ‘Thankya’! The banker has a song for Bunney and Noel produces it from the pound table, Bunney sings the song to the pilgrims and it ends in the line “I'll give you something meaty!!” The banker does indeed then offer a meaty sum of £16,000… That receives gasps from the whole studio, Noel says to think about this seriously as it's a big offer, he needs to look at in one of two ways, either the banker is worried about Bunney or he can’t stand anymore songs!! Bunney says NO DEAL

The banker offers £31,000, Noel asks is it time to 'hop off', not just yet says Bunney.

Bunney has done it and produced the perfect final round, it’s time for the banker with £20,000 and £250,000 remaining.
Noel says this is incredible and January is the month to remember. The banker believes that Bunney has made some of the bravest NO DEALs of all time, and then offers £110,000. OMG says Bunney. He says he has a little problem now as box 12 has been haunting him for a while and he says that when he played the Deal or No Deal interactive DVD game for the first time he was left with this EXACT situation!!! He says he in that game he swapped for box 12 and WON £250,000!!! Oh my word says Noel!! This gives him a difficult decision, as it's his DVD game vs. Sarah’s psychic ability now! Bunney says DEAL
Bunney runs around the studio in delight and nearly runs through the gameboard!! Noel calls him back to see who wins out of the DVD game and Sarah. Noel says you would have been offered the swap, what would you have done? Bunney says he would have swapped, Noel does the horrible thing of swapping the boxes in the proveout.
Noel opens box 12 and reveals £250,000!! Bunney says he knew it all along!!!! Box 5 has the £20,000
Wow Wow Wow says Noel, he says that recently three people could have won £250,000 and Noel is not bothered that Bunney didn’t win it as he was true to himself and will certainly make the most of his big win.
Noel says he is so pleased that we rounded off January in style with a big win from one of the most charismatic players they have ever had on the show.
Bunney’s win takes the total contestant winnings for January to £883,485.99, a truly incredible month, can it continue into February or will get some dramatic crashes as some of the contestants try to emulate these big wins of late?
