Celebrity Deal or No Deal

Radio Times
Review by:
David Crawford

A large part of the charm of regular Deal or No Deal is the relationship between the contestants, who are housed together in a hotel while waiting their turn to play the boxes. Replicating that shouldn’t be a problem for Joan Collins, who is allowed to bring along some of her showbiz chums as she tries to wrest money from the Banker’s iron grip for her chosen charity. Opening boxes for her will be Michael Brandon, Glynis Barber, Emma Samms, Helen Lederer and Lisa Maxwell. Will the woman who played the scheming Alexis in Dynasty be able to outwit the wily man on the other end of the phone?
