‘Deal Or No Deal’ Comes to Scotland

Legendary gameshow Deal or No Deal is heading out of the Dream Factory and embarking on a whistle stop tour of the UK of some of Britain’s most iconic locations Including Kelvingrove, Art Museum in Glasgow . In what is believed to be a TV first, one of the shows will see Noel Edmonds host the show from British airspace on board a Boeing 737.

In these very special shows Noel, the infamous phone, 22 red boxes and The Banker himself travel across the country, bringing the show out of the studio and physically to the audience as contestants play on location for a jackpot of £250,000.

Throughout the tour, games will be played at the top of Blackpool Tower, on board Flying Scotsman, inside the Eden Project, underground in Wookey Hole cave; in the Great Hall at Longleat House, the foyer of wondrous Kelvingrove, Art Museum in Glasgow not to mention London’s Alexandra Palace and the Trafford Centre in Manchester, and of course, a flight from 37,000 feet over the skies of Britain.

Noel Edmonds says “These shows are some of the most ambitious ever attempted on television – the sky has quite literally been the limit for this incredibly special series. It has been an absolute joy and honour to meet Deal’s loyal fans whilst out on the road at this hugely exciting time and I can’t wait for our loyal audience to see them on screen.”

The Banker says “I’d thought I’d have a little fun sending Noel all over the place. He needs the exercise at his age. And as it’s Christmas I thought I’d do what I love most – watching people‘s dreams being crushed. Though I could be softened up with a little sherry and a mince pie.

With more than a million visitors visiting annually, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is one of the jewels in Glasgow’s cultural crown.

Since 1901 this red sandstone palace has taken pride of place by the banks of the River Kelvin, and today showcases the city’s treasures as a Recognised Collection of National Significance. Kelvingrove is one of the most visited museum in the UK outside of London, thanks to its extensive and varied collections.

The museum has 22 themed galleries displaying an astonishing 8000 objects. The displays include one of the finest collections of arms and armour in the world, a vast natural history collection and many outstanding European artworks.

The most famous painting on display at Kelvingrove is the Salvador Dali masterpiece ‘Christ of St John of the Cross’. Sir Roger the Asian elephant is another big museum attraction. There is even a Spitfire plane hanging from the ceiling of the west court.

With a run of almost 3000 episodes and more than a decade on UK screens, these games are set to be some of the most exciting and truly unique yet.
