James's game today.

Noel says the hallmark of 2012 so far has been some sparkling games, along with some things to learn about, including how you need to play each game as though it's the first game. He says it's also important what you reveal to the banker, and he talks about how the banker latched on to Zoe's worry about the 10p yesterday.

James has box 3.

Noel says James is feeling rather tense. James is a manager of an estate agent, and we get to hear about how he proposed to his wife while they were walking along a beach. James shows a photo of his 2 children, and he gets a bit emotional as he's missing them so much.

Here we go...

Ludicrously quick introduction. I'll be back in half an hour for the five-box offer.

The banker notices James announces the value of the box as each box is opened. He also notices that James keeps looking at the photo of his children, and he hasn't seen his own son for decades as he works for a charity! Noel says Margaret is about to become a great-great grandma and has loads of grandchildren.

Banker's offer:

£12,000

James says that's a very good offer. He asks for advice, and Snowy says the board's not much different than it was at the last offer.

James says

NO DEAL

There could be some huge decisions coming up on this board.

With just three blues still in play and three of the power five, including a good fallback, very easy no deal.

There's enough stability to chase this another round, yes. Very few absolute disaster scenarios on this board.

The others offer James a bit of advice, and the banker rings and asks James what the names of his children are and how old they are! He wonders if he should write two cheques for each of James's children, and he says he can hear Mickey Mouse. He asks his sister in the audience, and she tells James to think about what his wife would say, and he says she'd tell him to deal.

The banker rings again and talks about his own son, and how he remembers that he always wanted to go to a theme park but he never took him, and he thinks that's what drove them apart.

James says

NO DEAL

The Banker is testing the Travis P Theory, that all fathers on the show will end up taking a poor offer if you only remind them of their kids. It's been successful in the past, but it's a bit of a waste using it before the ADP.

Round 4

Noel says James was good to resist the banker's taunts.

15 - Paul - £5

16 - Adam - 1p :D

Noel says the chances of taking the 3 blues out in this round are less than 1%.

18 - David - £1

James now has the first ever ALL-RED 8-box :D

Noel calls a break...
