Stephen Mulhern confirms second series of Deal Or No Deal

Stephen Mulhern confirms second series of Deal Or No Deal
Stephen Mulhern reveals that a new series of Deal Or No Deal will be filmed this summer.

Stephen Mulhern has revealed that ITV has commissioned a second series of Deal Or No Deal.

The gameshow was a huge hit for Channel 4, running for almost 3,000 episodes from 2005 until it was axed in 2016.

Last year ITV brought the show back for a new series, which ran for 20 episodes in the weekday 4pm slot, and has now committed to another run.

"We start to film for Deal or No Deal again at the end of June," Mulhern told The Sun. "We've done our first series and ITV has already commissioned it for a second series and it starts in September."

Discussing the show's appeal, he continued: "It is the biggest shock to my career because I knew the show was big, when Noel Edmonds used to do it.

"Catchphrase I've been doing for 10 series, I used to watch it when I was growing up, it's been a dream.

"Saturday Night Takeaway is an amazing show because I'm with two friends I absolutely love working with.

"But Deal or No Deal... because it's 22 members of the public and I love working with the public anyway, but you hear everything as a presenter.

"It's possibly the hardest job but the most rewarding job because you've got highs, you've got lows, you've got people that are there to win money, but over that hour you learn a lot about that one person.

"You just never know how the game is going to go and you no one can predict it, because whatever box you pick at random is the one you're going to have to go with and you're going to have to stick with."

Contestant applications for the new series are expected to open in the coming months.
