Now that the £250,000 jackpot has finally been won I wonder if viewing figures will start to drop?

Like someone said a few posts ago, I think this was all a little too suspect this win

A Big Win on the first Sunday of a new year when more people would be watching.

Turning down 1P less than 20K and 45K when all she wanted was 20K, "If" that is all she really wanted, why did she risk going on TWICE

Her mum and others saying Go On Go for it, You've got the 250K in your Box

The Poor Offer from the Banker of 45K when in reality it should have been at least 100K, I mean I've never seen such a poor offer like this before in a similar situation like this, It was almost like the Banker knew she had the 250K and was saying "I want you go to go on cause you have the 250K in your box

The Confetti/Fireworks setting off when she won, Are they really set up for each show.

"If" it was'nt all set up, then bravo to Laura, full of guts and determination, Not many people would have gone on in those situations when it got so risky, Even with £3000 and £250K is risky to go to the end, I probably would have taken the 45K to be honest.

Of course it is not setup. However, it is filmed well in advance so they can decide when to show it.

Now you have confused me, I could have sworn they said Thursday but there are daily repeats of Deal on around 11 each morning on More4 so who knows

And of course this is not fixed there would be uproar if it was. As the show is filmed well in advance they will edit each episode to fit into the schedule so something that perhaps comes across as happening spontaneously like the confetti being thrown on probably took a little while to sort out.

tbh, I was pretty suspect as well..

But when you remember Maurice's game way back when, we'd have been saying exactly the same thing if the boxes had been the other way round.. I think he turned down a £75k offer with £20k and £250k left?!

Proves you certainly need to have that extra bit of courage to win the big dosh. I'd have prolly caved at £45k as well, though!!

I think it was legit, if a little staged. But then, it has been edited down.

The programmes do go in sequence AFAIK, otherwise someone would be missing. If a person is ill etc., someone else opens their box.

Turning down the £19,999 and £45K - well if you have the £250K still there, why not.

Her mum wasn't there, it was her friend (sorry pedantic ) and she DID ignore her by carrying on. The other girl, on the East wing was saying "You have the 250K" but then obviously, it's a guess

Poor offer was very low considering and perhaps that's what made her mind up. Risking £42K for a chance of an extra £205K still took some balls.

Confetti etc. is probably there all the time I would guess, a bit like WWTBAM??

What made me suspicious was the backroom people at the side of the set watching. They probably do it all the time, but the way they edited it, it showed them BEFORE the box was opened. Prolly nothing though

Wasn't her Mum - she lost her to Alzheimers a couple of years back at quite a young age - 47 I think. Don't think it was setup personally - couldn't hear any coughing.....

BTW the repeat is on Channel 4 on Saturday at 1645 GMT. Don't know about More4

isn't this the first time they have gambled on opening the final box when its COULD have 250k in it? or first time in ages anyway.

I have seen at least a couple of shows in the past where they have got to the final box and gambled but have lost, I'm sure on at least one occasion the contestant has taken the box swap and has ended up given the £250k box away.

That was when he had already dealt though.

Morris and Kirsty were the only two prior contestants who went all the way with the £250k still in play (prior to Laura).

I suspect they filmed everything and edited it to make it slightly longer (55 minutes instead of the 45 minutes, not sure about Sunday games however since I usually miss them).

It seems suspect, but I don't think it was - the offer of £45k, fair play really. It takes guts to reject that offer and why offer something like £100k. You offer £100k, then of course she's going to say deal, £45k on the over hand..

Today's episode, the Bankers mum.... brilliant scriptwriting

The banker doesn't just take notice of a player when it's their turn. He starts taking notes as soon as they appear on the show.

Laura had previously said deal an awful lot of times during sweeps. Therefore the banker based his offers on this, and they were low...ish.

£45K is still quite an offer compared to the safety net of £3K.

That was great as was his poem. The banker tries to outwit and out physic the players like he did with today's guy by offering his swaps instead of money for the first three calls as he was the guy who said he would keep going if the £250k was still in play and as it was it was obvious the player would reject any amount.

I actually think that the bankers three 'swap' offers (and the poem) from todays show were really speakng to the audience. They were saying "The banker is going to be more evil from now on, so you've got an excuse to keep watching the show".

I think it's the producers trying to make sure that people don't stop watching now that someone has won the 1/4 million.
