DEAL or No Deal fans were left alarmed after a contestant gave away potentially risky information on the ITV reboot of the show.
Daryl was the second person of this series to come up against the banker in an attempt to win the £100k prize by selecting the correct boxes.Daryl was up against the banker on Deal or No Deal today[/caption] He revealed his strategy to Stephen Mulhern[/caption] Fans were left concerned about the personal information he was giving away[/caption]
The Essex police officer was excited to fire in to the boxes, telling show host Stephen Mulhern about his strategy for going home with the largest money pot.
He revealed that his game plan was to use the birthdays of family members when deciding which boxes to open, hoping that would bring him luck.
But viewers were left concerned for Daryl as he began to share the dates of his wedding anniversary and mum’s birthday.
A few fans pointed out that information is frequently used for security questions for online banking or password resets.
One shocked person exclaimed: “Damn your mother’s birthday!”
Another jokingly asked: “Is Daryl going to save his PIN number for the last round?”
A third person was quick to warn the 31-year-old dad, saying: “Daryl giving away all the important dates in his life…a scammer could have a field day!”
Someone else sarcastically wrote: “Can’t wait for Daryl to use the 3 numbers on the back of his debit card for his final 3 boxes.”
Others were left bored by the exchange, hitting out: “It’s like extracting teeth this programme, so long winded. Get on with it. I’m not interested in your families ages or birthdays.”
In between opening boxes Daryl revealed that he has a newborn baby and wife waiting for him at home.
The cop plans to use the money from his Deal or No Deal winnings to help support his wife through maternity leave, and also hopes to open a little pizza place of his own as a side hustle.
