      Any show hosted by Noel Edmonds is guaranteed to be a success. The man could get excitment out of paint drying if you paid him enough. Deal Or No Deal is no different.

      From the moment he comes on with the opening speech, delievered with great theatricality, you know you’re in for an entertaining 45 minutes. The format is simple.

      There’s 22 boxes all containing a mystery sum of money which could be anything from 1p to £250,000. A contestant is called up to play with their box.

      They open

      the other 21 boxes one by one revealing a sum of money narrowing down how much they could possibly have in their box. The banker calls up and makes them an offer for their box.

      They can either take the banker’s offer or carry on until the end and open their box, where they win what’s inside. Deal Or No Deal should be a boring 5 minute game , but Noel manages to stretch it out to a riverting 45 minutes.

      He uses a mixture of token catchprases and theatrical ...

      • pauses to build the tension and sometimes you even dread a box being opened. They’re only opening boxes, but Noel makes it appear life and death, without it seeming silly.

        It is also the most relaxed game show I have ever seen. The contestants get to drink tea or coffee and they can wonder about the set asking fellow contestants and audience members for advice.

        I have seen other formats from around the world, but nothing matches or resembles the UK version. The fact the other contestants have to be

        on every show to open the boxes gives it an almost family feel.

        You get to know each person as if they’re a character on a soap and by the time they’re called up to play, you’re really routing for them. Some other countries are now changing their formats to be more like the British version.

        A good testiment to how good the UK version is. Truly a highly addictive and entertaining show.

        If you haven’t watched it and now may try based on this review, be warned, you may not be able to stop watching!
