A giggly Noel whispers the Deal or No Deal intro today! He welcomes us and the pilgrims to the dream factory, and tries to sum last week’s shows and decides to call them the 'one's that got away'. Noel wonders if we will have the first wedding or even birth on the show this week after Lynsey and Martin's engagement last week!!
It's Jim's turn to take the 'Walk of Wealth' and he has box 19 today, it sounded as though Noel was going to tell him to 'Come on down' then!!!!!
Jim is a life skills instructor for autistic children, Noel runs through the numerous jobs that Jim has had - I lost count!! We see a pic of Jim's wedding day and he has his friend and best man from his wedding in the audience for support today.
Everyone is told to make some noise,

Noel asks what info the banker has on Jim, and we learn he's been through the hotel file!!! Jim is always the last one out of the hotel onto the bus in the morning!! The banker offers £2,000, 'A generous man' jokes Jim, he then says NO DEAL.
Noel wants a recovery game now and a good turnaround, Jim chooses 13 but Noel and Gary try to put him off!! Jim doesn't listen to them and stays with his choice.

Jim thinks about going for Joey next the baby faced assassin, but then thinks otherwise after her run of high reds. Noel calls a break after wondering if Wendy will be ejected from the studio before the end of the game by getting a red card!!!
2 - £10
The banker wants to know if Wendy is single!! Wendy says NO but I think he will like the job that she does!! She helps men get help with problems on the NHS (I'll leave that one to your imagination!! But it looks like it could be an interesting game when Wendy visits the 'Pound Table'!) The banker offers £9,900, Jim goes to his mate for advice, he says it's too early and there is at least another round in the game, Jim says NO DEAL.

Can the £20,000 be on the table yet again?!
12 - 10p Newbie Marriette
20 - £1,000
11 - £50 BIG CHEERS
It's time for the banker time with £20,000 and £250 remaining, surely the £20,000 can't be on the Pound Table yet again? The banker offers £6,000, that gets a few groans and Jim goes to his mate for advice, he applies Mally's law that Jim's box can't have the £20,000 as it's been on the table so many times lately.
The banker calls back and GUARANTEES Jim the chance to swap his box if he doesn't deal, Jim says NO DEAL.
The banker calls back and asks if he can change his mind over offering the swap!! Noel says NO and so the banker offers the swap. Jim takes the chance to swap his box and Noel collects box 17 and places it in front of Jim.
Noel opens box 17 and reveals £250!! Box 19 contains the £20,000.
Jim says he has had a great time, but it looks as though he will be doing a lot more overtime for a while!
