Quickly becoming a highlight of the show, the first Celebrity Deal or No Deal didn’t hit our screens until 2012. Stand-up comedian and TV host Jimmy Carr was the first of our celebs to brave the spotlight and face The Banker – all in the name of charity.
Playing for Helen & Douglas House, a charity for young adults with life-shortening conditions, Jimmy turned down offers of up to £14,000 during his game, ending up with just the £750 and £35,000 boxes for his final round. Bartering with The Banker in an unsuccessful attempt to wrangle a cheeky £20,000 offer, Jimmy ultimately stuck to his guns and opened his own box to find just £750 inside. Thanks to the generosity of the public, more than £6000 was later raised for Helen & Douglas House online.
