It’s a very, very, special occasion as Deal Or No Deal celebrates an incredible 1000 programmes with a week of spectacular shows – and gives the 1000th player not one, but TWO chances to win a life-changing £250,000.
Since it began in October 2005, Deal or No Deal has become part of the fabric of British television history with record breaking audiences tuning in every day to watch the extraordinary highs and lows as players chase that elusive £250,000.
As the big day approaches, that wily old Banker will risk more and more of his money by introducing special “gold plated” amounts onto the board: life changing sums of money that will give players the best chance ever to walk away wealthy.
But, for the 1000th show, itself he’s saved the pièce de résistance…
For the first time in the history of the game there will be…
TWO £250,000 boxes!
With the top prize on the board twice, the Banker runs double the risk of getting rather seriously credit crunched!
The money is gold, the telephone is gold, even Noel himself is gold for this very special week as Noel sets the scene in a gold lame dinner suit! The lucky contestants are resplendent in tuxedos and ball gowns on a red carpet to mark the occasion.
Noel Edmonds says… “To reach the 1000th show milestone in such a short space of time is testament to the enduring popularity of a show I am so very proud to present.”
The Banker says “Two £250,000 boxes gives the 1000th player a very, very special opportunity. But don’t forget that it also gives me the chance to see some puny human have their dreams crushed TWICE in just 45 minutes. Ha ha! I do hope they start sobbing. I like that the best.”
With messages of congratulations throughout the week from international versions of the show plus celebrity fans, such as Philip Schofield & Fern Britton, Paul O’Grady, Davina McCall, Sir Terry Wogan and Harry Hill to name but a few, these shows are set to be truly unmissable. Not only that, there’s a host of old friends joining in the fun – the pilgrims for one week only are all ex contestants!
From Wednesday 25th March – 1st April 2009 on Channel 4
