Trivia

  • In 1st episode, first contestant Lisa is the only player to get caught taking the lower offer despite giving 4 correct answers.
    • In 9th episode, first contestant Michelle is the only player to get caught taking the middle offer despite giving 5 correct answers.
      • For this series only, the table had an extra step in it. So in the next 13 series they both would have got home.
  • The first cash builder question for first contestant Lisa, on the first episode was "what is the name for a female fox?" She gave the correct answer of "vixen". All of which is a very bizarre coincidence with the future chaser, Jenny Ryan.
  • This is the only series to not feature Anne Hegerty as a chaser.
