Deal or No Deal celeb cameos you missed – from Naughty Boy to Meghan Markle

Deal or No Deal was a TV staple in the UK from the moment it hit the screens in 2005.

The UK version of the show was hosted by presenter Noel Edmonds up until it was axed in 2016.

There was also a popular American version that was hosted by Howie Mandel.

Known for the bright red numbered boxes and the black phone with the ominous Banker, the TV show was open to members of the public to apply and compete for the £250,000 cash prize.

However, over the years there have been many surprising celebrity cameos that people may have forgotten about.

Naughty Boy made an appearance on the show in 2007 before he rose to fame.

The radio star and DJ, now 40, appeared on the Channel 4 gameshow back when he was just 26, and ended up walking away with an impressive win of £44,000.

He also revealed that he only had £10 in his bank when he played. And looked completely unrecognisable from the showbiz star we see nowadays in the clips that were unearthed last year.

Olly Murs has also made an appearance on the popular game show.

He made his appearance two years before he won the hearts of the nation on X-Factor.

The cheeky Essex chap entertained the audience by doing the moonwalk before taking a shot at winning the cash prize. However, his high spirits soon came to an end when he walked away with only £10.

Meghan Markle has also made an appearance on the American version of the gameshow – years before she married Prince Harry.

However, she wasn't appearing as a guest, she actually worked as a briefcase girl on series two of the programme. Unlike the UK version of the programme, which used fellow contestants to open boxes, the US version used glamorous models, known as briefcase girls, to unveil how much cash was inside the cases.

The now Duchess of Sussex, 40, left the show mid-way through the season to focus on her acting career and later landed her breakthrough role in Suits.

Other celebrities have appeared on the popular show over the years, however these were through official celebrity specials.

Starts such as Jimmy Carr, JLS, Katie Price and the legendary Joan Collins have all faced the Banker to just name a few.

The Channel 4 show was a TV favourite until it aired its last episode on 23 December 2016.
