Noel welcomes us to another week at the dream factory, and it's the start of a very exciting week he tells us, with the build up to the 500th show on Friday. He talks briefly about Steve's disappointing game yesterday, and then goes over to Alan, or Gordon Brown, as he is now known!
It’s Kathleen’s turn to take the walk of wealth today, and she does so with box 12. Noel runs through the bits and pieces she has brought along, there is a piece of her granddaughter's comfort blanket! Luckily she is 24 now and doesn't need it!! Noel then runs through the various jobs she has had. We get to meet Kathleen’s special friend who she met a while ago, and she says it's great as he has Sky TV so she can see all the football!!

This is absolutely amazing says Noel, this is even stronger than Laura's game at this point... The Banker offers £32,000… That is a lot of money says Kathleen, and Noel agrees. But he goes onto say that it is a very strong board with the top 4 still in play. Kathleen asks everyone to stand up who thinks she should deal, only 2 stand... The banker calls back! He says tell the foolish pilgrims that it's not their money. Kathleen goes to her friend, he it's a lot of money, but he would NO DEAL... Kathleen says NO DEAL
