It's a Christmas shopping special today, I wonder what Noel has up his sleeve for us today for this special?! Well there are no Christmas decorations up for the special and it turns out to be a viewer’s competition special where we can win up to £50,000 in a one-off special.
It's Ian's turn in the 'Crazy Chair' today and he has box 14, Ian is from Scotland and is a professional fishing guide, Noel warns that there will be LOADS of fish puns today!! We get to see a few of Ian's pics and learn that he is planning to get married next year, so that could provide a potential financial target.
Ian wants LOTS of shouts and cheers today! He also wants to walk a round a bit so Noel takes a seat!
