Corrie star Simon Gregson appeared in the next Celebrity Deal Or No Deal this weekend, winning an impressive amount for charity.

The classic game show has recently been rebooted with a brand new series weekdays, presented by Stephen Mulhern.

This evening, host Stephen returned with a brand new one-off Celebrity version.

Coronation Street legend Simon Gregson went head-to-head with the infamous Banker.

Bolstered by his loved ones, friends, and some notable personalities, Simon faced the challenge of selecting the correct boxes while warding off the Banker’s alluring monetary propositions, all in the quest to win a substantial sum for his chosen charity.

There are no questions in this gameshow, except for one; Deal or No Deal?

How much did Simon Gregson win on Deal Or No Deal?

A maximum prize of £100,000 was up for grabs but at the other end was the infamous Deal or No Deal 1p club.

Ultimately, Simon walked away with £15,300 after dealing with the banker.

Unfortunately for him, it was ultimately revealed at the end of the game that his chosen box contained £50,000.

Deal or No Deal Celebrity Special airs on ITV1 and ITVX.

It’s the second celeb special after Michael Owen took on the banker in a Christmas special.

Meanwhile the main series of Deal Or No Deal is set to return for a second series.

Echoing the beloved original series, this show puts contestants in an intense showdown against the infamous Banker, where they vie for a life-altering cash reward. This game of high stakes requires a blend of bravery and keen intuition.

In every episode, a contestant is presented with 22 sealed boxes, each hiding a varying sum of money. The challenge lies in choosing and opening these boxes sequentially, uncovering the hidden cash values, all while remaining in the dark about what each box contains.

The reboot has proved popular with viewers, although many have noted one big change from the original.
