Noel talks about the rivalry between the 2 wings at the moment, and has a bit banter with Lynn about her attending university or not.
It’s Rita’s turn to take the walk or wealth today, and she has box 14. Rita is very excited about playing, and Noel introduces us to Rita's husband in the audience. We learn that Rita used to be a PA in an import/export business. She tells us a story about how she once modelled for clothes, and was offered a modelling contract, but refused because she was with her soon to be husband at the time. She shows us some of her piccies. Rita has a list of numbers that she pulled out of a hat to use. Noel tells us that today's show is the 444th, and says we will pay attention to Jenine today who has box 4…
Derek first and he apologises to Noel for his first box opening yesterday, and hopes he can redeem himself with the 1p today.
2 - 1p
5 - £1,000
9 - £10 Rita gets very excited about the blue and Noel tells her to pace herself
16 - £5
Noel builds up a blue finish and blue chants start!!!
19 - £250,000 Newbie Jo
Noel apologises as he thinks he might have jinxed that a little.... He tells the banker it's like standing next to an electric jumping bean! The Banker says that Rita is like a breath of fresh air from a row of bad eggs!! This receives boos from the east wing!! He then offers £12,444, it's a very good offer says Rita, but NO DEAL
Noel has more banter with Lynn
7 - £100 Big cheers
21 - £5,000
Paul with box 22 next, but Noel does something new first, and goes to the pundit panel! He goes to a member of the audience to make a prediction, they say the next box will be a blue and be £1...
22 - £50 Big cheers as Mo was close
Rita says the board is looking really good at the moment. Noel tells the banker that
Mystic Mo is in! He then goes over to her and asks what day it is, and she replies Thursday, Noel says NO it's Wednesday! There is then some comedy as she says she is definitely right as she has had a test!!!! The Banker offers £16,444. It's lovely and a really good offer, but Rita is convinced the banker will offer her more. Rita says NO DEAL
1 - £3,000
Box 4 next and Noel is a little concerned that she's not saving it
4 - £15,000
Noel says we need a blue now to avoid the all red round. James has some earplugs in to cancel out the noise from Jo and Lynn either side of him!! Noel goes and gets out a pair of ear defenders from the pound table for him!!!
10 - £20,000
The banker says he has had a test done and it was the worst round ever and it's also
Saturday!!!!! He then offers £18,444
Rita's husband joins her at the pound table and Noel gets a chair for him. They have a chat and both agree this is the crunch decision now, Rita says she knows what she wants to do with the money and that will do it all. It will allow her to visit her father’s grave that she has never been able to visit. Rita says she feels she should deal. Noel tells her to make the right decision for her and not be swayed. Rita says DEAL
Round 4 - Proveout round
Noel congratulates Rita on her £18,444 and hopes it was the right decision. Rita carries on with the numbers she pre-selected
11 - £250 Groans for the blue
13 - £500 More groans
17 - £35,000 Big cheers for that one - It's nowhere near enough says Noel
The banker says you have to respect Rita's decision for dealing, and would have offered £29,444. Rita says that hurts
Round 5 - Proveout round
18 - £10,000 Cheers, but Noel again says it's not enough
15 - £75,000
6 - £750 NO, Arrggghh shouts Noel
The banker would have offered £35,444
Round 6 - Proveout round
3 - £50,000 Big cheers
8 - 10p Groans
12 - £1 More groans
It’s time for The Banker with 50p and £100,000 remaining. He would have offered £44,444. Noel asks if Rita would have swapped, she replies no as none of the numbers mean anything to her.
Noel opens Rita’s box 14 and reveals £100,000
Box 20 contains 50p
Rita says she wouldn't have got that far into the game anyway, so she wouldn't have won the £100,000. She thanks the audience for their support and hope they had as good a time as she did.
