Noel talks about the interesting era we are going through at the moment where the contestants have the risk/reward balance perfectly timed. He wonders will we get another balanced player today, or will we get someone with that little bit more courage to take it all the way until the end and if the £250,000 is in play, produce another top prize winner...
It’s Paul’s turn to take the walk of wealth today, and he does so with box 17. Paul is a hairdresser from Cheshire and his surname is Broomhead, which Noel finds really amusing! Paul offers the banker an OAP rate for a haircut! He is a big Man Utd fan and hasn't missed a game since he was 7. He is a big risk taker, and did a bungee jump while on holiday.

14 - £10,000
10 - £100
11 - 1p Paul does a caterpillar dance in the walk of wealth!!!

Interesting opening round says Noel. The banker can't believe that the 1p has gone yet again in the opening round! Noel tells the banker about Paul's haircut offer, he replies that he only needs a polish! He says this is a game of 2 halves though, and offers £9,090… Paul says NO DEAL

3 - £5
16 - £20,000
An expensive round says Noel, and he asks Paul about a wedding he missed because he was watching football! It was his sister's wedding!!! He told her he would make it to her next wedding, which didn't go down well! The banker says Paul is growing on him after finding out about his sister's wedding!! He offers £12,500… Paul says it's a very good offer, and asks Adam if it's worth playing on… Adam replies yes... Paul says NO DEAL

13 - £1 Newbie Sophie

19 - 10p
It's 3-1 at the moment says Paul, and he reveals that 17 is his birthday, so the box means something to him... Noel asks the banker when the last time the £250,000 was brought to the table, and he replies it was Kelsie's game, 64 shows ago... The banker tells Paul to "Get out of the chair!!", and offers Paul the chance to play 90mins of football at Old Trafford - The home of Manchester Utd, with + £7,500 spending money. This offer has really unsettled Paul as he is a massive fan of Man Utd, and this is a dream offer. Paul asks for advice, and Adam replies that is a mental offer, and that offer is a big dream. Noel says he doesn't know what that package would cost and the banker could be getting him cheaply here... After a lot of thought Paul says NO DEAL
2 - 50p Big cheers

Noel calls it a very painful round, and it's a one-box game now... The banker says he has told some people they don't need to come and visit now, he has phoned Steve Bruce and Eric Cantona!!! He then offers £3,000… Paul says considering that last round it was to be expected... Paul says NO DEAL
