Noel calls the Spook Squad in to Deal or No Deal

October 14th, 2014

SpookSquadA week of spine-chilling specials air from Monday 27th – Friday 31st October

This Halloween is set to be one of Deal Or No Deal’s most terrifying yet as The Dream Factory is transformed in to the horribly haunted village of Little Dealington.

Host Noel Edmonds has called in his crack Spook Squad to tackle the garish ghouls, startling spectres and the blood-curdling beast that is The Banker.

As ever, the meanest man on telly will be trying to freak out, frighten and fool our contestants in to leaving with as little money as possible, but with exciting gameplay twists including chances to win amazing holidays and even more money up for grabs in Box 23, it’s not going to be easy for him. It’s not all one sided – if a contestant fails to predict The Banker’s opening offer, they may be offered the chance to try again at the second and if their prediction is not within a 10% margin in either direction, he takes a peek in their box – making Halloween extra scary!

Alan Carr wins £41,000 for Stand Up To Cancer on Deal or No Deal!

October 12th, 2014

Alan_Carr_SUTCEveryone’s favourite Chatty Man Alan Carr took on The Banker with the help of friends and family including Michael Underwood, Melanie Sykes and his dog, Bev to win as much money as possible for the Stand Up To Cancer appeal.

There was an extra challenge for Alan as he played ‘Alan’s Car’ – an against the clock challenge to complete a go kart circuit to win an extra prize to add to his winnings and a special guest appearance by The Banker’s newest temporary employee, Angelos Epithemiou.

This extraordinary rollercoaster of a game saw Alan become the first celebrity contestant to win the use of the Offer Button, but after taking out high value reds he panicked and used it too early. As the pressure of playing for charity began to take hold, Alan broke down in tears before deciding to deal at £26,000. But the rollercoaster didn’t stop there…

Continuing his game as he would have played it, Alan was devastated to discover his box contained the jackpot of £250,000. Bravely standing by his decision not to put his winnings on Box 23, the game ended on a high when the Alan’s Car prize is revealed as a £15,000 addition to his winnings – culminating in the life-changing sum of £41,000 for Stand Up To Cancer.

This October 17th, a host of stars from television, music and film will come together for Stand Up To Cancer, an epic night of fundraising hosted by Davina McCall, Alan Carr and Dr Christian Jessen. For more information and to get involved visit standuptocancer.org.uk

The Singer Takes It All

July 21st, 2014

alancarrFrom the makers of Deal or No Deal, The Singer Takes It All is a brand new singing game show coming to Channel 4 this summer!

The show will be hosted live by Alan Carr and for the first time ever viewers at home will take total control of a game show, becoming both judge and jury via a brand new mobile app.

DOWNLOAD HERE >>>

Each week budding singers will perform live on a thoroughly unique 18m long moving stage while, using the ground-breaking app, armchair judges at home will be handed the reins to rate performances a ‘hit’ or a ‘miss’ and see the results play out just seconds later.

If judged a ‘hit’ the hopeful singer will move forward towards the Gold Zone at the front of the dynamic stage to continue their song. But if the majority of viewers judge them a ‘miss’ they’re booted backwards off the track – and potentially out of the show
