A lively Noel is revved up today, as he tries to boost the atmosphere in the studio after the recent low wins. He wanders along the wings, and asks who they think will be playing today.
It’s a very reluctant Phyllis today, and she has box 8. Phyllis says she is shocked she is playing today, as she doesn't want to leave... She shows Noel a picture of herself on her wedding day, and gets a little emotional as she explains that her husband is no longer with us. Phyllis has her friend in the audience for support today, and her friend tells us that Phyllis is a good fighter so will put up a good battle with the banker...

4 blues and a red says Noel, just a shame it was that red... The banker says he has been looking forward to Phyllis' game, and if he weren’t sworn to Jean he would be all over her like a rash!!! He then offers £9,000… Noel leaps into the audience for their reactions, and starts with lots of banter with an Irish lady called Bridget, who tells Phyllis to play on and go for it … Phyllis says NO DEAL

We didn't want to see that one says Noel... The banker now has a new light in his life, it's Bridget the lady that Noel spoke to before!! The banker wants to take her out for dinner tonight, and she tries desperately to get rid of Noel!! The Banker offers £13,000… In a terrible Irish accent, Noel says that is a brilliant offer... Phyllis wonders what she can do with that amount of money, and thinks of a swimming pool, but would also need a bigger house to put it in… Phyllis says NO DEAL

Phyllis says she would have liked to have kept that one... Noel goes back to Bridget in the audience to see what she thinks the offer will be, and she replies £10,000... Noel then asks her if she has applied to appear on the show, and she says yes, which frightens Noel!!! The Banker offers £10,000… Noel says that Bridget has been uncovered as another agent of the bankers!!! Phyllis gets hugs off her friend and Noel as she starts to get emotional... Phyllis runs through the outcomes if she takes out the big one now, and Noel chips in that if she avoids the big one in the next round then her offer will soar... Phyllis says DEAL

It’s time for the Banker with 1p and £50.000 remaining… Phyllis thinks she has the 1p, and the £50,000 is in box 17 with Steve... Noel is quite shocked at what the banker tells him he would have offered now!!!!
The banker says he would have offered £10,000 here, and then offers Phyllis the chance to give back the £10,000 she already dealt and then take whatever is in her box!!! Phyllis is told by lots of the contestants to stick with what she has already won as she is certain that her box contains the 1p… Noel then asks if she would have swapped as well, although the banker hasn't offered that yet!! The banker calls back and then says he will offer the swap as well...
Phyllis says she was happy to deal at £10,000, and she is still happy with that...
Noel asks if Phyllis would have swapped if she played on, and Phyllis says she would have, so Noel does the hypothetical SWAP!!!
Noel opens Phyllis' new box 17 and reveals £50,000
Box 8 contains the 1p
