Red Hot Mamma tries risky and frisky gameplay to leave with a life-changing sum

Doreen's perfect round helps put her in a brilliant position with The Banker

Doreen, a retired social worker and self-proclaimed ‘Red Hot Mamma’, took no nonsense from The Banker, playing a measured game that netted her a huge sum of cash.

The 80-year-old may have lost the treasured £250,000 box early on, but it did nothing to dampen her spirits. Doreen gave as good as she got from The Banker, turning down a £1,800 offer to find out where the game would take her.

Doreen’s game at a glance:
Box number: 19
In the box: £100,000
Deal or No Deal: Deal
Box 23: Double (not bought)
Final winnings: £50,000

Playing to put money towards a family holiday – as well as some much-needed refurbishments for the home – Doreen then managed an incredible perfect round of all blue boxes. After declining a generous offer of £18,000, she decided to heed the advice of her dear husband Ray’s favourite saying for now: whatever will be will be.

But with two reds left on the board, and a huge £50,000 offer from the banker, Doreen could stick to her guns for only so long, and excitedly made the deal. Although her own box contained £100,000, there’s no doubt that the money she won will end up being a life-changing amount for herself and Ray.
