Deal or No Deal fans gutted for player as he joins 1p club after huge gamble

Deal or No Deal: Contestant wins 1p

ITV’s Deal or No Deal fans were left “gutted” after player Reece narrowly missed out on a staggering amount of money and instead left with only 1p. Nurse Reece had some great luck in the first half of the game and ended up with just 1p, £5,000, and £250,000.

Reece decided to keep playing despite the banker making a generous offer of £8,000, which would get him everything he had hoped to buy with the money. Despite warnings from his co-stars and partner, Reece decided to reject the banker’s offer.

The next box he chose contained the £5,000 and it was all down to what was in Reece’s own box. Sadly, his contained only 1p and he became the first in the new series to join what host Stephen Mulhern dubbed “the 1p club”.

“Have you done the right thing?” Stephen asked before revealing the amount in the box.

He continued: “What did you bring to the table from the very start? Good luck, Reece.”

Gasps could be heard around the studio when it transpired Reece had only 1p in his box.

Despite the bad news, Reece smiled and clapped at the result after taking a huge gamble.

“The first player to win the penny… Reece, listen it’s a good job that you collect coins.
