DEAL Or No Deal is reportedly ‘making a miraculous TV return’ six years after it was taken off-air – but it will be without Noel Edmonds.
According to an insider, ITV are working on a reboot of the hit-Channel 4 show, with a new telly favourite at the helm.
The programme ran on Channel 4 for 11 years until it was axed by bosses in 2016.
Sources say that Stephen Mulhern has reportedly been approached to front the show.
“Deal Or No Deal was absolutely huge back in the day and pulled in millions of viewers,” they said.
“ITV think there is still a huge appetite for it and think they could make a huge success of the show if they brought it back,” the insider told The Sun.
They added: “Plans for the reboot are in the very early stages and the details of when it could come back are being closely guarded.
“There have been discussions around Noel possibly returning but ITV decided they want to give the show a completely fresh look and feel.
“Stephen has been approached about being the new host of the show which is something he is over-the-moon about.
“He has really proven himself to ITV and after he got his own show In For A Penny, as well as Catchphrase, bosses think Stephen could be ideal for it.”
