Its Sunday night 6:45pm and it can only mean one thing, another great episode of catchphrase.
Hosted by the wonderfully talented Stephen Mulhern this week’s show saw 3 contestants try to battle it out to won the jackpot prize of £250,000.
This week’s contestants were:
Joe a 19yr old from Cambridgeshire, who is studying at Leeds and is a second yr broadcaster student. Last yr he was lucky enough to be selected to collect an award from the prime minster for being a games maker at the London Olympics.
Debbie: a 30 something from Croydon. Mother of 2 children and works part time in a super market on the patisserie counter, and claims that nobody squeezes her doughnuts! And if she won she would buy some new trainers, a new car and take the family to Disneyland Paris.
Ian: who is 35yrs old from Manchester. A father of 2 and works as a centre manager in an assessment centre. Ian is terrified of spiders and once called a taxi company to get rid of a spider for him and paid £20 to do it.
The game starts with a knockout round where one contestant will go home. Ian guessed the first catchphrase which was brain storming and continued to take the lead. Joe was the first to leave the game, unfortunately going home empty handed, but the game went on between Debbie and Ian. Ian took an early lead but Debbie was catching up. Stephen Mulhern had great banter with the contestants and the audience seemed to love it.
In the second round each catchphrase was worth £200 and Ian seemed to be on a role guessing fishing for compliments, also in that round he won a prize of 4 bikes.
The third round had a theme that connected each catchphrase together, this themes was love and romance. Ian yet again got the catchphrase and the start of that round, guessing love rat.
Things started to change in round 4 as Debbie was catching up. Each catchphrase in this round was worth £500 and Debbie guessed the catchphrase cold calling. This round they could also keep buzzing in as they wouldn’t be frozen out.
Debbie took the lead in this round and won the game, so she had the chance of taking on the super catchphrase and had the chance of winning £250,000. Ian left the game walking away with the prize he won earlier and a cash total of £2500.
She sped up the pyramid only struggling on the last catchphrase which was pecking order, and winning herself at the end of the game, £28,800 an annual pass to Drayton manor and a trip to Florida. So well done to Debbie and don’t forget to tune in same time next week to see another 3 battle it out to win that cash prize.
