The identity of the banker from the UK version of Deal Or No Deal has been revealed by gameshow master Richard Osman.
The mysterious man who regularly enjoys horrific banter over the phone with cringey legend Noel Edmonds is Channel 4 gameshow producer Glenn Hugill.
Pointless host Richard Osman revealed him when asked by Metro how he comes up with new ideas.
Two Tribes was an idea that Glenn Hugill – the Banker on Deal or No Deal – and I had been thinking about for a long time. We kept coming back to it and thought, ‘Hang on, this really works, let’s pitch it’.Advertisement
Hugill is best known for his role in Coronation Street between 1996 and 1997 when he played policeman Alan McKenna.
He also presented two series of Channel 5’s The Mole. No, never heard of it either.
