There have been discussions around Noel possibly returning but ITV decided they want to give the show a completely fresh look and feel...

I think they jumped the shark with Box 23, but honestly, UK Deal was the best version of Deal.

I don't think they're going to bring back Noel because he now lives in New Zealand; although, that would be one heck of a commute.

I think thereís a case to be made for Deal Down Under, but again thereís a host issue, so thatís a drag.

Hosting issue aside, the UK and AUS versions of Deal are prime examples of how a show can work with two very different tones. I honestly can't think of another well known show that's been able to do that.

You could argue the successful US version set a third tone, completely different than the other two. A format chameleon. I do agree that the UK version was best.

And the Dutch version sets a fourth tone as a lottery extravaganza. For a game with so little meat to it, the format is absolutely brilliant in that respect.
