We’ve seen some mega-money wins in the Dream Factory over the years and 2014 was no exception.
Pat Crick from Bromley walked away with a life-changing £170k on the 10th March. Pat was left with the ‘Dream Finish’ of £100k and £250k, and with the additional twist of Box 23, a potential £500k was up for grabs. The Banker had no choice but to make his highest ever offer.
We had two £50k wins in 2014 with Stan ‘The Man’ playing a brilliantly bold game, surprising everyone by going all the way to the end. Laura also won £50k by holding her nerve, saying she believed there was a large red in her box throughout her game.
Q: What did Annalynn and Gill have in common during 2014? A: They both took £75k from The Banker!
Annalynn was The Banker’s assistant during Love HQ but that didn’t stop her going all the way to the end to win the £75k in her box.
Gill also held out to the end but when Noel flipped the lid of the ‘Death Box’, there was no money amount stuck to the lid! It had fallen inside the box so the independent adjudicator was called up to reveal that Gill had won the life changing £75k.
Our themed weeks always deliver extra drama but this year’s Halloween shows brought a big treat for Bill. Having won the Offer Button, Bill had the presence of mind to use it at the perfect time, securing an £80k deal and a holiday to Goa.
But the highlight of 2014 has to be Roop who was crowned our 7th quarter millionaire during the Love HQ specials. Amazingly, if Roop had bought Box 23 he could’ve been our first ever winner of a massive half a million pounds!
Will we crown our first £500k winner in 2015? Keep tuning in to Deal or No Deal to find out.

HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS WITH DEAL OR NO DEAL.
The fun-packed festivities on Deal or No Deal’s Merry Christmas air on Monday 22nd, Tuesday 23rd and Monday 29th and Tuesday 30th December on Channel 4.
Snow is falling, sleigh bells are ringing and chestnuts are roasting meaning only one thing – Christmas is coming to The Dream Factory.
The Deal or No Deal contestants take to the wings in their seasonal finery in the hope of receiving some Christmas cheer from those infamous red boxes.
Each day will see Noel reach dizzying new heights of festive fashion as he sports one of four colourful Christmas jumpers, designed and made especially for him by local knitting groups.
As ever, the Grinch himself, The Banker will be trying to ruin everyone’s Christmas by sending our contestants home with as little money as possible. But with an opportunity to win a dream holiday by delivering presents from Santa’s Sleigh against the clock, there’s every chance Christmas could come early for our contestants. Either way, these seasonal specials will be ones that you don’t want to miss!

A 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!

Everyone’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
