Who knows some of the saddest swaps, in my opinion, the saddest being orry in 2007. But he had a 1k box as it was Christmas, Emma's game in May 2012, the banker was probably crueler than ever. And Angel On 13 January 2014. Her reason for swapping was quite odd though

Swappy Barbara from October 2006 and Esher from October 2012 are probably in my top 5 as well. :( :cry:

I honestly think Barbara's swap was FAR worse than Orry's swap. Orry was extremely sentimental and emotionally attached to his late brother's birthday box, so we all kind of saw it coming. Barbara's decision to swap on the other hand was just a complete spur of the moment thing and her reaction at the reveal was so sad as she was so overcome with shock at the consequences of her decision that she could hardly speak fluently and you could tell she was holding back tears at the end

Jim who played the day before notorious Donna was another one from that era. He'd gone to the end with a £250/£20k finish and he swapped it on the basis that £20k had been on the table for the last 2 games, but sadly, it would've been 3 if he kept his box. I heard Jim took his loss quite badly and completely broke down in tears after the game :(

Esher was made worse by the fact that she'd had one of the strongest 5-box boards of all time (£1k/£35k/£75k/£100k/£250k and a sub-par offer of £60k) and at the time, we were practically starved of big wins. It'd been 2 months since someone had a power-5 level win and Esher could've broken that drought by either keeping her box or dealing at 5-box, and sadly, the power-5 win drought would continue for another 2 months after that :smt009

PJ and Matty's 17-box swaps also come to mind as they both swapped a life-changing amount for 1p and won it. But both games were also controversial with the banker's shock tactics in PJ's game and Matty going from being cocky at the beginning of his game to looking like he was on death row after the game crashed and he realised the error of his swap


£5k Matt just before Barbara is also up there as Matt took it quite badly when he swapped a £50k box for £5k, and it also felt like a real letdown after Matt had the strongest start in the history of the show

Barbara's swap was not only a snap decision, but it was grounded in baseless logic - ''I've just blue... and blue...''. Well, neither of what was left was actually blue, Babs.

Ahh, one I've just remembered. Lad called Jim in Dec 2006 swapped because he was left with £20,000 and a blue and he couldn't believe that the £20k would be on the table three games running. Well, 'twas. He was dumbfounded.
