What has happened to Deal or No deal as of 23sept 2016 that was the last one and now we have Family fortunes. Loved Deal or no deal as you had a great laugh at the show and the contestants were really great. Always had a very good laugh. Best thing on there. Please bring it back as I know there must be plenty more shows to broadcast.

On The chase, today, challenge 21.00 the question "what is the Dicken medal awarded to" came up. The 3 answers were ALL correct as it is awarded to animals NOT just pigeons but the answer shown as correct was pigeons. Please explain.

Paul Ellison: This is not the website or either The Chase or Challenge TV. According to Wikipedia, The Chase is made by a production company called Potato, which is owned by ITV Studios, so I would suggest contacting them with your question.

I have recently retuned my freeveiw tv and now seem to have 'lost' Challenge. The freeveiw website says it is available in my area. Can anyone tell me how to get it back please?

Darren Scutt: Please provide a full postcode so we can see which transmitters are available at your location and where you are in relation to them, along with predicted signal strength etc. Are you missing any other channels such as Pick or Dave which are broadcast on the same multiplex?

Since the retune in March I have lost channel 46 Challenge, 11 Pick and 12 Dave. May be others - not checked fully. Why has it happened and what can I do to get them back (Postcode TA1 Taunton)

D Davies: I'm assuming that you're receiving the Mendip transmitter (TA1 covers a wide area and does not allow me to see a coverage prediction for your location). The channels you mention are all broadcast on the COM5 multiplex which recently moved to UHF channel 33, which is outside the frequency range that a Group C/D aerial (which you likely have) is designed to receive. If you don't have satellite or cable you should be entitled to have a free replacement wideband aerial fitted, which can be arranged by contacting the Freeview Advice Line (see link below).

ben: This is not Challenge TV's website and it is unlikely that anyone from the channel will read your comment here.
