A fairy dressmaker has won £8,000 on TV quiz show Deal Or No Deal.

Beth Hall appeared on the popular Noel Edmonds-fronted show this afternoon as she attempts to win a minimum of £5,000.

The show’s host was so impressed by Ms Hall’s company, he even agreed to don one of her fairy creations live on air.

The 51-year-old dressmaker has been running her own business for the past 15 years and, until recently, ran a stall at the West Pier Market.

In July, she moved to unit 22 at the Brighton Open Market and turned to the TV show to boost her company by paying off her credit card debt, covering the rent and buying a starter pack of fabric.

Today she opened one of the red boxes to reveal her £8,000 prize.

She said: “I was just watching the show and thought that would really work for me if I could just get on the show. £5,000 would really help me out.”

Ms Hall had previously told The Argus host Noel looked “fantastic” in her dress and she plans to display the dress he wore on a dummy outside her shop.

Well done, but I would have waited at least one more, probably two more rounds, and gone for the biggy.

Well the Banker spanked you but ... you settled for what you needed to keep the business afloat for another year. Shame it was the chance of a lifetime, but they do their research well, enjoy.
