Marvin, Aston and J.B. took the Celebrity Walk of Wealth. Noel discovered Ortisé had run out of petrol on the motorway on route to the Dream Factory! That wouldn’t put a damper on huge Deal or No Deal fan Marvin’s day; he plucked lucky number 14 from the bowl of balls. Best man Tom carried box 14 to the Pound Table.
An overflow of JLS fans in the studio next door cheered the belated arrival of Ortisé. JLS were complete and they started picking the boxes. Four blues including the 1p were found in the opening round. But the £250K was the lone red! The Banker said it was the best looking wings ever before offering a tank of diesel and £6K – NO DEAL. JLS were playing for the JLS foundation charity. Head of the foundation Zoe watched on as £50, £100 and £20K were wiped from the board. The Banker would do a deal at £10K. Noel was ready for the question – NO DEAL. The Banker wanted to see Aston’s world famous back flip. Aston would only do it if Noel did it too! Noel accepted the challenge and watched Aston before copying the back flip himself! It was actually Aston dressed as Noel but he looked more like Tina turner. £10K, £10 and £75K weren’t simply the best but The Banker upped the offer to £13.5K – NO DEAL.
Round four started with £5K and £35K. Fellow X Factor contestant and friend Olly Murs played Deal or No Deal twice winning £10 then 50p. That proved being famous doesn’t guarantee a good result. £750 completed the round. The Banker offered £15K but the boys believed they could beat it – NO DEAL. £100K was the worst possible start to round five. £1K and £500 led to the lowest offer of the game, £5K. JLS offered to take The Banker on tour so he upped the offer to £7,001 – NO DEAL. JLS were right to go all the way, leaving £15 and £50K on the board. The Banker conceded he lost with an offer of £26K. Lucky number 14 pushed the boys to – NO DEAL. Noel flipped box 14 to see… £50K! That completed one of our biggest celebrity wins and will be a big help to the JLS foundation.

JLS to play Celebrity Deal or No Deal Sunday 12th May 8pm Channel 4.
JLS shocked their fans by announcing their split but fear not, they have not broken up yet and will all be appearing together in a brand new special of Celebrity Deal or No Deal!
In this outing the boys, self professed Deal or No Deal super fans and winners of 2 BRITS, 3 MOBO awards and holders of 5 UK Number 1 singles, work their way through the 22 sealed boxes, with the help of friends and family in the wings, as they attempt to win big for the JLS Foundation in conjunction with Cancer Research.
The players outnumber the Banker four to one but it will be far from plain sailing for Marvin, Aston, J.B. and Ortisé as the famously uncharitable Banker endeavours to thwart their chances of winning some serious cash.

Deal or No Deal: Deal in Space 6th – 12th May on Channel 4
Watch the video promo >>>
This year the Dream Factory heads deep into the cosmos for a week long, space themed party to celebrate The Banker’s Birthday.
The Dream Factory will be transformed into the flight deck of the USS Enter-to-win-a-prize as Captain of the ship Noel Edmonds leads his spaceship crew on a journey through the universe in search of life changing money.
All week we will be celebrating The Banker turning one year meaner, and the birthday boy is in the mood to party.
Players will be given the opportunity to pilot a UFO for the chance to win a holiday with his themed party game, if they are still in play at box 5. Although if they lose The Banker will get to have a peek inside their box and play some wicked mind games.
Boldly go where no man, woman, cyborg or banker has gone before and join us for Deal or No Deal: Deal in Space!

Deal or No Deal has been on Channel 4 since 31st October 2005. Nearly 8 years and over 2000 shows later Noel and the gang are still going strong. But how many of you know the rules to Deal or No Deal? Here’s our newbie guide:
- The show starts with 22 identical sealed boxes on the wings each containing an amount of money between 1p and £250K.
- At the start of the game the player selects a numbered box at random.
- The player’s aim is to sell that box back to The Banker for the most amount of money possible.
- The independent adjudicator loads and seals all the boxes. No one but the independent adjudicator knows what is in the boxes.
- In the first round the player must choose five boxes before the first offer from The Banker.
- Noel asks “Deal or No Deal?” The player must answer, “Deal” to accept the offer or “No Deal” to decline the offer and carry on.
- Three boxes are opened in the second, third, fourth and fifth rounds followed by the question.
- If you decide to “No Deal” you will continue in this fashion until only two boxes remain.
- If you accept an offer by saying “Deal”, the game is still played out in exactly the same way.
- When the last two boxes remain the Banker will give his final offer. If you say “No Deal” you will then go through to the final box opening in live play.
- The Banker may offer you to swap your box with the other remaining box. You may decline or accept the swap.
- You will then win whatever is in the box on the table and this will be opened to reveal what you have won.
Before you graduate from Deal or No Deal School, it’s worth knowing that five people (all young women) have won the £250K and there are currently 46 1p Club members.

Comedian, talk show host and one of the most successful British broadcasters of his generation… Jonathan Ross took the Walk of Wealth!
Jonathan had the support of his family in the wings including Mum Martha, Brother Paul, Sister Liza and his children. Best friend, Emily was also in the studio to open a box.
It was time to choose a box, Jonathan picked box 5 at random so daughter, Betty carried the box to her father at the Pound Table. Noel wished Jonathan good luck!
A bad start of £50K and £3K was balanced by £750, £50 and 10p. The Banker thought it was an ‘iffy’ opening round but would delve into his wallet and offer £15K – NO DEAL. Jonathan revealed to Noel that he had an amount in his mind, which he wasn’t willing to take less. £75K was hit first in round two before Noel revealed Jonathan is playing for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. £5 and £100K ended a damaging round. Massive comic book fan, The Banker compared himself to a Super Villain and offered £8,888. Jonathan wrote his target in Noel’s book before he decided to – NO DEAL. Paul Chowdry has past experience with Noel, filming a skit for Noel’s House Party. £20K, £1K and 50p were found in round three. Jonathan spoke to The Banker “Noel won’t last forever, you will need a replacement” he joked. The offer was £11K – NO DEAL.
Noel was worried about premature celebration when £10 was hit first in round four. But there was no need to worry when £1 and 1p completed a sensational all-blue round. The Banker’s offer was £16.5K, the highest of the game so far. Jonathan said it was below his target so The Banker added a twist. If Jonathan says no deal and hits a blue then he’ll offer Jonathan’s his target of £20K but if he hits a red then he’ll need to continue. Noel asked Jonathan the question – NO DEAL. Emily was chosen to open box three, which contained £15K and meant Jonathan would need to go on. £100 and £5K put Jonathan in a good position. The Banker said box 15 was now worth £20K. Son, Harvey and The Pilgrims thought Jonathan should say “no deal” before Noel asked the question – DEAL! It proved the right decision when £250 and £35K were left at the climax. The final offer would’ve been £10K and £250 was on the table.

The Dream Factory will be opening its doors to a well known face this spring as Celebrity Deal or No Deal returns to Channel 4 on Sunday 24th March at 7pm.
Jonathan Ross will be taking on the infamous boxes and the charity hating Banker in the hopes of winning up to a quarter of a million pounds for his chosen charity, the Rachael Dean Memorial Fund, part of The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.
Noel Edmonds will of course oversee proceedings as our star player works his way through the 22 identical sealed boxes and the Banker’s offers.
It’s Superhero vs Super villain as the Banker at the end of the phone endeavours to thwart Jonathan’s attempts to win big and the one question Jonathan must answer is Deal or No Deal?
Joining Jonathan in the wings for his show will be some familiar faces including wife Jane Goldman, Brother Paul Ross, DJ and promoter Jodie Harsh, and comedians Paul Chowdhry and Shappi Khorsandi.
Jonathan gets under The Banker’s skin from the outset, but after some heated exchanges, who will be triumphant?
