Presenter Noel Edmonds will be leading a crop of new game shows when Deal Or No Deal ends after more than a decade on the air
First airing in 2005, the box-themed programme was an instant hit with audiences around the country, garnering 4million viewers at its popularity peak. Having handed out £40million in prize money since it began, only eight people have walked away with the maximum of £250,000.
In honour of the show's longevity, the production will tour around the country with its iconic red boxes and the black banker's phone, recording in front of live audiences from major landmarks in the UK. Deal Or No Deal on Tour was commissioned by chief creative officer Jay Hunt and pitched by Edmonds himself.
Edmonds described the closure of the show's studio home in Bristol and its subsequent tour as "the beginning of an exciting new era for Deal".
One of the new giveaway shows, currently titled Cheap Cheap Cheap, features Noel as the proprietor of an eclectic general store staffed by quirky characters. Contestants must guess which out of three items costs the least in the hope of winning a huge jackpot.
Noel Edmonds' Sell or Swap will see the host become an auctioneer as contestants bid on antiques and luxury items which can then be sold or swapped. A third show is also being piloted but details have yet to be revealed.
