A quizzical Noel does the intro question today, he talks about Simon's game yesterday and how it compared to Jim's game earlier in the week, also how it may have affected Simon's decision in the game. He reminds everyone to forget about past games and play their games as if there have been no other games.
It's Sarah's turn in the crazy chair and she has box 20 today, and is told to take the walk of wealth carefully as she has a small china cat perched on top of her box, Noel says it looks terrible!!! Sarah has her husband Scott in the audience with her today, she wants to win enough to totally spoil Scott. Jenny is still ill today so Danny is on double box duty and Noel promises him some sweets at the end of the show for all his hard work!!
18 - £250 BIG cheers and Noel does a terrible Irish accent for Conor!!
5 - £100 More cheers
1 - £5,000 John is told to stay behind for box practice
6 - £20,000 a few groans
4 - £3,000
Sarah says that is OK as she still has the power 5, we learn about Sarah's pet business that she runs. The banker tells us he borrows his neighbour’s cat for stroking!!! He appreciates the discount that Sarah has offered him, although he doesn't want her to WINALOT!!! He offers £9,000, Sarah says it's a fair offer, and Scott says it's reasonable, Sarah says NO DEAL.
21 - £100,000 groans all around
10 - £750 Cheers as the blue goes
2 - £75,000 ewwww goes Sarah and Noel
Noel says there is a BIG whole in the board now for the cats to get in, the banker says it was BIG prang!!! He offers £11,000, Noel says he is surprised at that offer, Scott says it is about right, Steve(wrighty says it about right but to go on) Brian says much the same but is told to be more cheerful!! Sarah says NO DEAL.
Sarah goes to Joey next, but Noel is worried about Joey's assassin name!! Although she’s not produced high numbers for quite a while now.
15 - 10p
22 - £50,000 Groans for that one
9 - £500
Noel says the £250,000 is looking exposed now, he asks Scott where he thinks the banker will go now, Scott thinks that the banker will raise his offer a little. The banker offers £13,000, Sarah says it's a good offer and she's pleased with it, she says she knows that she is taking a risk by going on but accepts that. Before Noel can ask the question the banker calls back!! He raises the offer to £15,000, the raise surprises Sarah, Scott says it's only a couple of grand. Sarah says NO DEAL.
7 - £1 Big cheers
19 - £50 more cheers
Sarah goes to 16 next and Noel builds up the possibility of an all blue round and the higher offers that would have to follow, he then calls an AD break just as the seal is about to be removed from the box! After the break Noel goes over to box 16 and shows that the seal is not broken and Sarah can change her mind, she doesn't and sticks with box 16
16 - £250,000 What a nightmare says Sarah
Sarah asks if she can change her mind now!! The banker offers £5,000, Sarah says that offer was to be expected and NO DEAL.
12 - £1,000
3 - £15,000 groans for the safety net going
17 - £5 Cheers for the blue
Noel says we are now in the 'how brave are you territory', the banker offers £7,000. Noel goes for a little sweep and warns that this info will go on their file!!!! Most say NO DEAL, Sarah says NO DEAL. That is brave says Noel...
8 - 1p Big cheers and applause for the perfect start
Chants of BLUE BLUE BLUE start
14 - £35,000 Groans as the highest red disappears
13 - 50p
That round leaves a final 2 of £10,000 and £10, the banker says this will be a lesson to everyone not to disrespect the banker and his money!!! He offers £2,000 the amount that Scott originally commented on that was 'ONLY a £2,000 raise in the offer' earlier in the game! Sarah says NO DEAL
Noel opens Sarah's box 20 and reveals £10! Box contains the £10,000.
Sarah says their is no justice in the game, Noel says that it's true and you have to go for it and Sarah should have gone away with £10,000 at the very least.
Sarah played a very brave game today especially with the recent games that have crashed, it was VERY interesting that Noel really made an effort to include Sarah's husband in the game after his rants and raves since Donna's game when he told everyone not to include their input into their games!! Noel seemed to dismiss all his speeches of the past few games!!!
