Start of another week in the 'Dream Factory' and Noel SHOUTS the question DEAL OR NO DEAL in the intro today!!!! It has certainly livened up the pilgrims!!!
Noel runs through Tony's game yesterday and talks about his early deal, the £250,000 gets another mention for still being absent from the table....
It's Lynne's turn in the 'Crazy Chair' today and she receives a very LOUD welcome as she takes the walk of wealth with box 8. Noel asks if the box feels like it has the £250,000, she says it does. Lynne is a freelance writer of short stories for magazines, Noel asks if there are any stories from the contestants hotel that might appear soon!! She has her husband in the audience for support today.
18 - £50
16 - £1,000
'Shed' hopes Lynne's game has a fairytale ending
11 - £250,000 Not again!!! It's not going to be the big fairytale ending now !
2 - £100,000 It gets worse!!! Noel calls it the script from hell!
22 - £5
Lynne says she writes 'twist endings' so that this could all still turn around. The banker loves it that Lynne has killed off the 2 big characters in the story so early!! The banker reminds everyone to remember that the banker NEVER forgets anything a contestant says and his offer is based on something Lynne mentioned earlier!! It's Lynne’s room number in the hotel!! He offers £111, Lynne says NO DEAL.
5 - 50p
20 - 1p
4 - £500
A very nice all blue round for Lynne and the banker says it's a slight improvement, although he gets unhappy when the 1p and 50p disappear! He offers £4,111, Lynne says NO DEAL.
3 - £250
12 - £1
Noel potentially jinxes the round now by mentioning the number of blues Lynne has knocked out!
15 - £10 Noel doesn't jinx a round for a change!!
It's another all blue round, Unbelievable says the banker! He wants a word with Lynne to come to an agreement!! He says his favourite novel is Catch 22 and then offers £11,111. Lynne wants a quick sweep, everyone says NO DEAL, Lynne says NO DEAL.
21 - £3,000
13 - £5,000
10 - £100
Noel describes the board as fantastic now, although the banker says he is unhappy after that round, he offers £21,111. Lynne goes to Ned for some advice, he says to carry on as she should still be OK after another round, Lynne says NO DEAL.
9 - £35,000 a few groans for that one
14 - £750 cheers for the blue, only 10p remains in the blues
7 - £50,000 groans again for the high red
Lynne starts to choose another box until Noel shouts NOOOO at her!! Noel says the banker should be worried as it looks as though Lynne is prepared to go all the way now. The banker offers £19,111, Lynne goes back to Ned and he says it is a really tempting offer and to seriously consider it, Lynne says you are only in the chair once though and NO DEAL.
19 - £20,000
17 - £15,000
1 - £10,000
That round creates a massive gap in the final 2 values, which are 10p and £75,000! Lynne says that now she needs some guts and she says she hopes he offers her £76,000 to get rid of her! The banker offers £22,076, Lynne wants a sweep and the question is do they think Lynne has the guts to go on? Everyone says YES, the banker calls back and says NO!! Lynne says NO DEAL and the whole studio goes wild!!
The banker quickly calls back and offers Lynne the chance to swap the boxes around, Lynne says NO SWAP. Noel really builds up the tension in the studio before opening Lynne's box 8 and revealing £75,000!! Lynne does it and pulls off a fantastic turnaround, Noel throws the box in the air with delight! Box 6 contains the 10p
Lynne provided an incredible game today and despite taking out the 2 largest values in the very first round, she managed to turn around her fortunes and show great courage in going to the end and risking all for the big win.
