A woman from Hailsham has won £50,000 on Channel 4 show Deal or No Deal but narrowly missed out on winning £250,000.
Mum-of-two Kristie Wickens accepted an offer of £50,000 with only five boxes left when the show aired at lunchtime today (October 12).
Kristie, a checkout supervisor, plans to use part of the money to begin a nursing course.
She said, “I am so happy with £50,000 - I’ve never had that kind of money before.”
Before beginning the game, Kristie showed photos of her children; Harry aged three and Max aged 16 months.
She was also supported by partner Rob, who was in the studio audience.
With just five boxes left to play – 1p, £20,000, £35,000 £100,000 and £250,000 left on the board, she took the banker’s offer of £50,000 to stop playing the game.
But, if Krisite had continued playing, she could have walked away with more than £100,000 extra after opening boxes worth £20,000, £35,000 and being offered £170,000 by the banker.
Much to Kirstie’s horror, it was finally revealed her box was worth £250,000 – the first time she’d had it all series.
The show can be seen now on the Channel 4 website.
