The new series of Deal or Not Deal starts on ITV today (November 20), but the show – which last aired in 2016 – will be taking over the slot previously occupied by the popular gameshow Tipping Point, presented by Ben Shephard.
It launches on ITV1 and ITVX at 4pm, with Stephen Mulhern making his debut after taking over from host Noel Edmonds.

While fans are excited for the Deal or No Deal reboot, many have also been left disappointed by the schedule shake-up.
Taking to Twitter, one viewer said: “Deal or No Deal on instead of Tipping Point? I’ll miss the hashtag.” Another agreed, adding: “Me too. Looking forward to the new Chase tonight though.”
Is Tipping Point being cancelled and replaced by Deal or No Deal, or is it being rescheduled? Asking for an upset elderly relative.
Someone else said: “How am I going to fill the 4pm-5pm void that will be missing from my weekday routine? Come on Ben, bring us a grand finale!”
