Another landmark was achieved yesterday with George's win taking the total winnings for the contestants to over £6,000,000. Will Noel mention this? Or will his stats people take a few days to realise the total has been passed? Noel welcomes us to the dream factory and talks about how every game and player is different.
It's Gabrielle's turn to take the walk of wealth of today, and she does so with box 16 today, as the camera pans around we see that it has 2 pink boxes on top of it! Noel races over to carry the 2 pink boxes for her as she makes her way to the pound table, she has her daughter in the audience for support today. She has an unfulfilled dream of doing a Viennese waltz in Austria with Noel as her toy boy partner, Noel says he can't dance!! Noel asks about the 2 pink boxes, one is for Noel and one for the banker, Gabrielle says Noel's are to wear during the show! It's a matching pair of pink fluffy slippers like the ones that Gabrielle has been wearing on the show. Noel puts them on to much laughter from everyone and does a little walk around the studio! Noel warns everyone else NOT to bring out any other strange items for him to wear as he won't be wearing them!
1 - £35,000
3 - £100
5 - £50,000 Groans as Noel says there is now a big window in the reds
11 - £1 Cheers for the blue
12 - £250,000 BIG groans
What an opening round says Noel and Gabrielle says she is feeling sick! The banker loves his slippers as much as Noel does! He has a gift for Gabrielle, which is an item of clothing he wears late at night! It's brought out and it's a pink feather BOA. The banker makes an opening offer of a SWAP for any remaining box in play, he also adds to the offer of always saving the last dance for Gabrielle.
Gabrielle says she doesn't feel good about box 16 and wants to SWAP
, she wants Bunney's box 13 and Noel asks him to HOP over! He doesn't so Noel wanders down to Bunney in his pink slippers! Noel points out that box 16 is normally a very lucky box on the pound table and also that Bunney has had low numbers in the past!!
15 - 10p Big cheers
17 - £10 more cheers
It's box 19 next but Noel calls a break while doing a dance in his fluffy slippers! On the return Noel is still doing his dance in the slippers!!
19 - £10,000 groans for another red
Noel tells Gabrielle to try a different system as hers isn't working, she throws away her slip of paper away that she had her list of numbers on. The banker points out the power of box 16 while on the pound table!! And he's not worried about her game at the moment, he makes an offer of £6,500, Gabrielle says NO DEAL
Bunney with box 16 the swapped box next, there are ohhs from the pilgrims and Noel says that's a brave move but clever move as it takes away something from the banker... Bunney delivers yet another song!
16 - £3,000 BIG CHEERS for that one - Great decision to swap says Noel
4 - £100,000 BIG GROANS and NO NO NO from Noel
Gabrielle goes and picks up her piece of paper again with her...
10 - £750 Needed that say Noel
Gabrielle starts to pick another box and Noel starts a strange 'I can count to 3' chant!! The banker thinks that Gabrielle is a very courageous player, but don't under estimate his offer of £6,500, he sticks. Noel says it's a good offer considering the last round, Ryan says she would have to be very unlucky to take out the remaining high reds in the next round, Gabrielle says NO DEAL
18 - £20,000 Groans for another high red
22 - 1p BIG CHEERS
9 - £5 BIG cheers for the low blue
Noel wonders where the banker is going to go now, the banker calls and says he wants the box cheaply! He offers £7,900. Noel wants to sit down!! Gabrielle gives him the chair but says she might sit on his knee later! Daniel says that if she takes out the £75,000 in the next round she is going to have to go to the end before she will see that sort of offer again, Gabrielle says NO DEAL
8 - 50p Big cheers and shouts for that one
2 - £1,000
21 - £75,000 OH NO!! says Noel
The banker calls straight away and offers £2,000. Gabrielle goes to Ryan again, he says it depends what £2,000 means to her. Noel says the game could have a swing or a sting in the tail. Gabrielle says NO DEAL
6 - £5,000 Groans for that one from Newbie Simon
14 - £50
20 - £500 BIG CHEERS
It's time for the banker with £15,000 and £250 remaining, Noel tells the banker that round didn't go according to his plan. The banker recognises that Gabrielle has been very brave in her game and offers £5,500 which gets a mixed reaction, but Noel says it's a good and teasing offer. Gabrielle gets her daughter down for support, Dennis says take 5 seconds out to think about this. Noel tells Gabrielle to only gamble if she is feeling really confident today, Gabrielle goes to Julie who says that she really deserves the £15,000 and she so much wants her to win it. Gabrielle says NO DEAL
Noel says the lucky feathers have helped so many he hopes they help her as well and puts some on top of box 13...
Noel opens box 13 and reveals £15,000, the whole studio goes wild. Noel does a little speech to camera about if you are brave you get rewarded. Box 7 contains £250.
Noel says he is so relieved that he didn't wear the silly slippers in vein today!
Gabrielle tells us that she really needed the money as she wants to pay off her daughter's student loans and then any left over she is going to visit Austria to go to a Viennese ball.
Noel closes out the show by saying that Gabrielle was a plucky lady and was the banker wise in offering the swap at the start of the show as it cost him £12,000 at the end of the day.
