A rather scary Noel shouts the intro today!! He welcomes us all to a new era of the game, with the Banker playing the wings off against each other! He wanders over to James, who he feels sorry for at the moment as he is stood between Lynn and Jo! James still has his ear defenders on! Noel then has an argument with Lynn over her lying about going to university!!!
It’s Gaz’s turn to take the walk of wealth today and he does so with box 20. Noel introduces Rampant Gaz the Casanova!! Gaz has his friend in the audience who was a big part in Theresa's game. Gaz is a plumber and Noel asks if there are any stories he can tell, and Gaz keeps quiet. Noel tells us that Gaz is a failed gambler, as in the past he has tried to make something out of it, but got greedy and failed in the end. We get to see a piccie of Gaz's daughter Grace...
19 - £75,000 WOW says Noel as that receives a few groans
2 - 1p Big cheers for that one
5 - 50p more cheers
1 - 10p more cheers
9 - £250 Kath gets a hug for that one
That's bloomin good says Noel. The Banker says the rampant plumber is in the chair and his mate granny grabber mat is in the audience!!! Gaz is hoping for a £26,000 offer, but The Banker offers him half of that, £13,000… Gaz says NO DEAL
15 - £10
3 - £5
6 blues in a row now says Noel, and he is very close to the 8 in a row record...
Gaz asks for a blue chant!!!!!
6 - £15,000 Shouldn't have asked for that chant....
Gaz says he is delighted with his board at the moment, and Noel says the banker won't be. The Banker comments about Gaz's gambling background, and he doesn't believe he can take any chances with him. He offers £19,500. Noel asks Leila what she thinks of the offer, and she replies not a bad offer. Kath chips in that it's the best board they've seen for quite a while.... Gaz says NO DEAL
17 - £10,000
10 - £35,000 A few groans for that
21 - £1,000 That's OK says Noel
A crumb of comfort for the banker says Noel. Gaz asks if he can speak to the banker, and the banker agrees. Gaz shouts Hello to him, and Noel says you don't answer like that!! It's a brief conversation, and ends with The Banker offering £22,000. Gaz thinks he is ready, but he goes to his mate, who says to carry on. Gaz says NO DEAL
4 - £5,000
16 - £50 Newbie Belinda
11 - £500 Big cheers for that one
Wonderful says Noel, we don't have a male quarter millionaire and it could be you... The Banker offers £28,000. He calls back and says that Gaz gave such a disrespectful look to that offer that he will offer 1p next time if it continues!!!! Gaz says NO DEAL
22 - £750 BIG cheers
There seemed to be an attempt at blue chants that were edited/stopped
14 - £3,000
Blue chants start
18 - £100 FANTASTIC says Noel
Noel says he doesn't think we've seen a board this strong this year. The banker asks Noel if he can offer him 1p!! Noel says you can but it’s not very nice... The Banker then offers 1p!!!! But then adds £70,000, so the offer is £70,000.01.
That's an awful lot of money says Gaz, and he wasn't expecting that. He asks for a sweep and most say DEAL, Derek, Shahid, James and Peter say NO DEAL.... A few in the audience also agree NO DEAL... Gaz says DEAL
That was a tough decision says Gaz, it's the hardest decision he's had to make. Gaz says 3 years ago before his daughter was born he would have said no deal....
Round 6 - Proveout round
13 - £1 Gasps of shock around the studio
8 - £50,000 NO NO says Noel, another perfect box
12 - £20,000 NO shouts Noel
It would have been the perfect round, and also left the dream final 2 amounts of £100,000 and £250,000!! The Banker would have offered £170,000.01… Gaz says he would have gambled that if he were playing on....
Noel opens Gaz’s box 20 and reveals £100,000
Box 7 contains £250,000
That's not so bad says Noel, and he comments on Jo having the £250,000 for her first 2 shows!
