During the recording of one show. One of the contestants had unexpectedly fallen unwell and had passed out and recording had to be ceased. Noel Edmonds asked the audience to stay where they are and to be patient, so the paramedics could assess the contestant and half-an-hour later, recording continued and the contestant's husband was shown live footage of the contestant and that she was alright, much to the delight of Edmonds and the audience.
