It’s not that unusual to launch with a Celeb special. Epic Gameshow did that, The Crystal Maze has done that in recent years (before it became Celeb only) and has happened with things like Five Minutes to a Fortune too.

Seems a bit odd to launch with the celebrity special, you'd expect that to air the following Saturday.


I'd have even thought that they should've aired the special a couple of weeks later, isn't there less money in the celebrity special?

No, the celebrity special is also £1 million.

When they first announced it they said the celeb special would be £250k but they seem to have changed their minds (presumably realising how daft it looked making a fuss out of the £1 million prize only to then revert for the special).

Looks like they actually have teams of celebs now rather than individuals

Mo Gilligan and David Ajao

So they're still calling celebrity specials the million pound cube despite the fact the celebrity specials are still £250000?

Looking at the episode previews now available, it seems there are rollover contestants...

I think the original run did have rollover contestants too in the earlier series at least - although it was filmed in a way they could pair up contestants to make an episode.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

Without rollovers it makes it way to easy to say when a game is going to end. With £100K drop, they never have rollovers, so if it was 4.55pm you knew that the pair was going to get out in the next question.

Same with DOND, of course - if it was 4:50 and the contestant was deliberating over the 8-box offer, you knew they were going to say "deal". Wink
"What is two plus two?" "Rather more than three." "Yes, but can you be more specific?" "The Belgians."

He / She's dealing...

Yup! told ya!

Extremely, extremely, EXTREMELY very, very, VERY cautious deal & player.

Should have been a LOT more brave

I miss that forum... Wink
