Hope it's not unlucky 13th today, being so close to the £4million in contestant's earnings will it be broken today or more than likely on the 250th show on Thursday? Noel introduces the show hinting that Tomorrows 250th show will be something special for us the viewers (A larger viewers competition jackpot no doubt), but will also be celebrated in style.
Today's player at the 'pound table' is Helen who has box 6, she has her husband Ian in the audience with her today for support. We get to see her piccies of her 2 boys and also another with the rest of her family in - They all have birthdays that end in the number 6 and with Helen having box 6 is this a good sign for her.....
3 - £50 'Newbie' Jo gets an 8/10 mark for box opening from Noel
14 - £750
2 - 10p
4 - £250,000 Thought this round was going too well!!!!
17 - 50p
A near perfect opening round ruined by yet another very large sum going in the first round. The banker calls and offers £6,006 - Keeping up the 6 theme. Helen says NO DEAL
22 - £1
Noel whispers to Michaela who has nicknamed a 'Black Widow' not to spoil this next box
8 - £15,000 a few 'ooohhs' from the audience - yet another red for Michaela....
15 - £35,000 a few more 'ooohs' from the audience
The banker calls very quickly, he has had his stat machine out for the performance of box 6 and he says it's the only box to have produced two 1p winners! He then offers £9,006, Helen says NO DEAL
1 - £20,000 more 'oohs' and a hole appearing in the reds now
19 - £5 BIG cheers and 'whoops' from the audience
21 - £50,000 BIG 'ooohs'
Noel goes to fellow contestant Nev for his opinion of the game - he says although there is a gap appearing in the reds it's still a strong board and there are still loads of blues to hit in the next round. The banker calls and says he has an image of Helen walking out of the studio with over £30k, and doesn't want that to happen so offers £10,006. Helen says she is surprised at the increase in the offer with some large values going in that round and goes to her husband for some advice, he thinks that although people have destroyed a similar board in the past she has to go for it, Helen agrees and says NO DEAL.
12 - £10 cheers and applause for the blue
20 - £250 More of the same from the audience
Noel asks for one more blue - He then points out the box 6 stat
again about it producing 2 1p winners and the 1p still being on the board
9 - £5,000
Not the all-blue round that was hoped for but Helen says it's OK.
The banker still has the £30k nightmare and offers £15,006.Noel goes to Helen's husband who says that he thinks she can still go another round. Helen goes to Nev who says he is surprised the offer was so low if the banker is so worried, the banker calls back and Noel will not answer the phone but instead calls Nev over to answer it, the banker says that Nev shouldn't have dismissed the offer and he's 'for it' when he plays his game!! Helen says NO DEAL
5 - £75,000 Big groans followed by silence.....
10 - £10,000 more groans for another red....
16 - £100 Cheers greet the blue to finish the round
Noel wonders where this next offer will go - up, down or stick. Helen says that she will be bringing her husband down to the pound table now - Noel disappears off set to get him a chair. The banker is still worried and thinks that Helen is a player and will go all the way so increases his last amount and offers £16,006. Helen asks the audience to stand up if they would DEAL, most do although a few shout out NO DEAL. Noel again mentions the history of box 6 and it's 1p fate and the fact that the 1p is still in play, Helen says DEAL.
Round 6 - Proveout round
18 - £3,000
11 - £100,000 Cheers and applause and Helen pulls off the perfect game for herself
13 - £1,000
The perfect proveout round and the banker calls and says he would have made an offer of £206, Helen would have said NO DEAL at that offer.
Noel opens box 6 and reveals 1p!! Spooky - The audience go wild
Box 7 contains the £500
Noel then gets the people in the audience who said they would have said NO DEAL at the £16,006 offer to stand up and say 'SORRY' to Helen.
Another landmark is reached tomorrow with the 250th show, Noel has promised celebrating it in style, so tune in to find out what surprises await us.
