Noel welcomes us to the dream factory for the start of a new week. He talks about the "wing states", and the different stages that the contestants go through, he says we are in a cautious state at the moment, but he hopes that changes today and we go into a courageous state.
It's Darren's turn to take the walk of wealth today and he does so with box 17, and on his way to the pound table he drops his piccies off the box which Noel rushes over to pick up for him. We see the pics and there is one of his cat Milly and his family. He works in insurance and Noel asks if he has taken out cover to protect against the 1p!!
He has his sister in the audience for support, and we learn that he doesn't have a financial target, but wants enough for a nose job! Noel says I'll save you some money and gets out a mask and a lump hammer!!!
22 - 50p
13 - £10
3 - £100
18 - £3,000
10 - 1p Big cheers
That's the sort of opening round that most dream about says Noel, he wonders what the banker thinks of Darren. The banker says that the contestants need a massive turn around, as all he can smell at the moment is fear! Although with a nose like Darren's that’s not surprising he says!!! The banker has checked a few plastic surgery websites for prices and he is offering £2,000 for each inch that Darren needs removed from his nose!!! He offers £12,000, Darren says NO DEAL
9 - £ 15,000 Doug fights his way into his box
20 - £50
Noel is in hysterics at the moment over the nose job banter and then says the board has the smell of sweet success, but will it conk out after the break!!!!
1 - £750
Noel asks Darren how it feels to have crawled from under the rock and become captain courage! The Banker calls and offers £21,000, Darren asks Debbie for some advice, she tells him to 'get on with it'!! Darren says NO DEAL
14 - £10,000
Blue chants start...
6 - £250 Adrian gets BIG cheers for his blue
21 - £5,000 David and more cheers
It's fantastic and amazing says Noel, he asks the Banker how he is feeling, he says it was a good round however this is the key moment and offers £26,000. Darren goes to Lee who says this is an absolute dream at the moment, Darren asks if anyone would deal, no-one would. Just as Noel asks the question Deal or No Deal, the banker calls back!!! He raises the offer to £32,000!!!!! Julian tells Darren to stay calm, and Darren says NO DEAL
16 - £5 Big cheers as newbie Di delivers the low red
Blue chants start
7 - £1,000 Big cheers again and Noel says Wow Wow Wow, he tells us to savour this board as we are one box away from DOND history
Blue chants start
8 - £100,000 The chants turn to groans
Noel says the banker will be relieved at that last box, but it's still a dream game. The Banker calls and offers £35,000, he describes it as the perfect offer. Noel asks how lucky Darren feels and then the banker phones back again!!! He wants to speak to Darren, Darren says it's like a horror film!! He tells Darren as he's in insurance not to have an accident!! Darren says NO DEAL
Blue chants start
4 - £75,000
19 - £50,000 Now we have a big problem says Noel
12 - £1 Big cheers for that that and a WOOHOO from Noel
OH WOW says Darren. The Banker calls and offers £42,000, Noel asks if Darren wants the headline from the banker, and it's that he thinks Darren has too much courage and he needed to offer the £42,000 to get him out of the chair! Darren says he has only had 3 large amounts while on the wings, Steven tells him to remember that the £42,000 is real money that could be sitting in his banker account... Darren says DEAL
Round 6 - Proveout round
Noel says we will now find out if Captain Courage has bottled it!!
5 - 10p Groans
15 - £20,000 NO says Noel
11 - £250,000 BIG CHEERS and relief all around
It's time for the Banker with £500 and £35,000 remaining. Darren is happy, but Noel says it's rude to gloat (Doesn't stop you some days Noel!!!!!) The banker would have offered £15,000, Darren says he would have dealt there.
Noel opens Darren's box 17 and reveals £500, box 2 has the £35,000.
Fantastic, the perfect game says Noel. Noel closes out the show saying this is just the type of game we needed like he described at the start of the show, and hopefully it will continue throughout the week.
