This glorious little fellow is the Letterbox.

0:00:020:00:04

Locked within it is £2,500 of the realm.

0:00:040:00:07

To get the cash, all you have to do

0:00:070:00:08

is work out the eight-letter password.

0:00:080:00:10

It started off as an accident, where I forgot my bank login details.

0:00:100:00:14

And now we've turned it into a game.

0:00:140:00:16

Welcome to Letterbox.

0:00:160:00:17

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

0:00:170:00:20

Hello and welcome to Letterbox,

0:00:270:00:29

the show that's all about cracking passwords.

0:00:290:00:31

Let's meet our first two pairs hoping to get their hands on the cash.

0:00:310:00:34

Craig and Paul.

0:00:340:00:36

-Hello.

-Welcome. CHEERING

0:00:360:00:38

There's a lot of love for you, Craig and Paul, in the room.

0:00:400:00:43

-There is.

-Yeah.

-There is today.

0:00:430:00:44

There was whooping. It's great. How do you two know each other?

0:00:440:00:47

-Sisters?

-Brothers.

-We're brothers.

-Oh, you're brothers.

-Yes, yes.

0:00:470:00:50

-Oh, yes...

-Quite a big difference in age.

0:00:500:00:52

-Oh, is there?

-Although we were born 17 years apart,

0:00:520:00:54

we've just got this kind of sync...

0:00:540:00:56

-Telepathy?

-Telepathy type thing going.

0:00:560:00:58

Yes! I'm getting some vibes.

0:00:580:00:59

Yeah, yeah, a lot of people say that.

0:00:590:01:00

-Just kind of...

-Isn't that funny?

-That's why I'll be sending him the words

0:01:000:01:03

if he doesn't know.

0:01:030:01:05

And I'll be sending him the words if he doesn't know!

0:01:050:01:07

LAUGHTER

0:01:070:01:09

There'll be a lot of word sending.

0:01:090:01:10

Good.

0:01:100:01:12

Now, they're up against Lisa and Jo.

0:01:120:01:14

CHEERING

0:01:140:01:16

-Hi!

-Now, you two, how do you know each other?

0:01:180:01:22

We've been best friends for 18 years, we met over the garden fence.

0:01:220:01:25

-Literally?

-Yeah...

-You actually literally met...

0:01:250:01:28

-So, what happened?

-Well, I was pegging my washing on the line,

0:01:280:01:30

with my curlers in my hair, ready to go out,

0:01:300:01:33

and Lisa popped her head over and said, "Smells nice.

0:01:330:01:35

"Where are you going?"

0:01:350:01:37

I said, "On a night out." She said, "Next time, give us a shout." And we did,

0:01:370:01:40

-and we've been friends ever since.

-She can't get rid of me.

0:01:400:01:42

That's absolutely... When she said, "Smells nice..."

0:01:420:01:45

-Yeah.

-..were you referring to the washing or to Jo?

0:01:450:01:48

Definitely not Jo.

0:01:480:01:49

-The washing. It smelled...

-Yes...

-Jo is obsessed with softener.

0:01:490:01:52

-Really bad.

-OK.

-If you touch Jo, you can smell it.

0:01:520:01:56

Oh, really? Yeah. What, the same smell that you had over the fence?

0:01:560:02:00

-Yeah, smell it.

-I'm going to recreate the moment.

0:02:000:02:02

-Oh, God.

-Here's the fence.

0:02:020:02:04

-I'm pegging out...

-I'm scared.

-..my washing.

0:02:040:02:06

-Go on, have a sniff.

-Oh, it's very fresh, isn't it?

0:02:060:02:08

-Yeah.

-Let's smell yours.

0:02:080:02:10

Different. It's a different one.

0:02:100:02:13

Let's smell.

0:02:130:02:14

-Nice?

-JO:

-You smell nice.

0:02:140:02:16

-Oh, I'm getting a sort of citrus...

-Yeah...

-Nice little citrusy...

0:02:160:02:19

-Paul, come hither.

-Oh, I don't know if you want to smell...

0:02:190:02:21

-Oh, I don't... Wouldn't...

-Come on. Right, and moving on...

0:02:210:02:24

LAUGHTER

0:02:240:02:25

Everyone smells...

0:02:270:02:29

-Just check myself.

-You smell lovely.

0:02:290:02:32

You smell nice.

0:02:320:02:33

I could do better, to be honest.

0:02:330:02:35

Could do better. Now, Lisa and Jo,

0:02:350:02:37

who's going to be playing first for you?

0:02:370:02:39

-Me.

-Joanne.

-Joanne. Craig and Paul...?

0:02:390:02:41

-Has to be, has to be.

-It's going to be me.

0:02:410:02:43

-Craig first.

-Yes.

0:02:430:02:44

Right, very, very good.

0:02:440:02:46

So, we're all decided. Take your positions.

0:02:460:02:48

Let's play.

0:02:480:02:49

Oh. Oh, that's never happened before.

0:02:550:02:57

-Very...

-She's got lovely hands.

-She's got soft hands.

0:02:570:02:59

Lovely hands. She puts Comfort on her hands.

0:02:590:03:01

I know! Do you use the same fabric...?

0:03:010:03:04

Let go, now. Come on.

0:03:050:03:07

LAUGHTER

0:03:070:03:08

Now, listen, here is your first password.

0:03:100:03:13

Have a little look at this.

0:03:130:03:15

-Oh, big one.

-Big one.

0:03:160:03:18

-Big one.

-It's a big one.

-Oh.

-Nine letters.

0:03:180:03:21

We're going to give you a hint. City. We tossed a coin backstage.

0:03:210:03:25

Jo, you're going to go first, aren't you?

0:03:250:03:27

-So, off you go, my love.

-Can I have a C, please?

0:03:270:03:29

A C. OK.

0:03:290:03:31

Straight in there with a C.

0:03:310:03:33

Yeah, well done.

0:03:330:03:35

Next choice, Jo?

0:03:350:03:37

Can I have an S, please?

0:03:370:03:39

S. S, for stupendous.

0:03:390:03:41

Ooh.

0:03:410:03:43

-Well done.

-Ooh.

-Well done.

0:03:440:03:46

-Mm.

-Jo, still with you, my love.

0:03:460:03:48

Yeah.

0:03:480:03:50

-O.

-O?

0:03:500:03:52

Good choice, let's have a look.

0:03:520:03:54

Two Os, look at that.

0:03:560:03:58

Can I have a...

0:03:580:04:00

-Jo...

-T, please.

0:04:000:04:01

A T? Let's see if we've got a little T in there.

0:04:010:04:05

-Still with you, Jo.

-Can I have a K, please?

0:04:090:04:11

You most certainly can. A K...

0:04:110:04:13

SHE EXHALES

0:04:130:04:14

HE EXHALES

0:04:140:04:15

I don't even want to look at Lisa's face.

0:04:150:04:18

She's looking happy.

0:04:180:04:19

-Do you think?

-I don't know...

-What if I get it wrong?

0:04:190:04:21

Because I'm not the best speller.

0:04:210:04:23

I don't even know why I'm on this show.

0:04:230:04:26

I'm hoping my personality will take over.

0:04:260:04:28

It'll kick in at some point.

0:04:280:04:30

Now... Jo, I am kidding.

0:04:300:04:32

You know I'm kidding. Hold hands, hold hands.

0:04:320:04:34

-Touch my... Oh, they're sweaty.

-No, they're good, they're good!

0:04:340:04:37

Wipe them on me. Wipe them on me.

0:04:370:04:38

You're fine. That's good.

0:04:380:04:40

-Jo, you're going for a K. Yeah?

-Yeah.

0:04:400:04:42

-K.

-Can I have a P, please?

0:04:430:04:45

Yes, you can, Jo.

0:04:450:04:47

You can have a P.

0:04:470:04:48

Oh. It's not what I thought.

0:04:500:04:52

-What were you thinking?

-That's what I was thinking.

0:04:520:04:55

Oh, I see what you thought!

0:04:550:04:57

Yes, see, I'm not silly!

0:04:570:04:58

-Ah...

-I was on it.

0:05:000:05:01

Oh, I see.

0:05:010:05:03

Right, OK. Over to you, Craig.

0:05:030:05:05

H, please.

0:05:050:05:06

-Have we got an H?

-Sorry.

0:05:080:05:10

There is an H. And another letter from you.

0:05:100:05:12

Can I have an L, please?

0:05:120:05:14

-L.

-Aw!

-Have we got an L?

0:05:140:05:18

-Yes, we do.

-And I will have an M for my wonderful mother.

0:05:180:05:21

Aw! M for the mother ship.

0:05:210:05:24

There we go. M...

0:05:240:05:25

Yes! Stockholm.

0:05:260:05:28

Did you think it was Stockport?

0:05:280:05:32

Stockport, yeah.

0:05:320:05:35

Well done. Oh, we're hugging already and we've only just begun.

0:05:350:05:38

-Stockport, Stockport...?

-So, Stockholm.

0:05:380:05:41

Not Stockport.

0:05:410:05:42

Which, to be honest, is actually a town and not a city anyway, so...

0:05:420:05:45

-Oh, should've known.

-There we go. Well done, you've got that first...

0:05:450:05:48

-Thank you.

-Well done.

-You kind of gave half of it to me.

0:05:480:05:50

I know, I gave it away, as usual.

0:05:500:05:52

-It's all right.

-They're such lovely girls, as well.

0:05:520:05:54

-They are lovely.

-They're such lovely girls.

-Hey,

0:05:540:05:56

-it's not over till it's over!

-No, I'm just saying...

-Calm down!

0:05:560:06:00

Calm down, it's not over till it's over.

0:06:000:06:04

I feel like the garden fence is here and there's just this...

0:06:040:06:07

Oh, my... Listen, you've cracked the first password...

0:06:070:06:10

-Yes, we did.

-Stockholm, not Stockport, I'm afraid, Jo.

0:06:100:06:13

Now, as you know, there are 26 letters in our alphabet.

0:06:130:06:16

-Yes.

-They're all hidden here in our Letterbox.

0:06:160:06:18

The eight red ones spell out the final password that will unlock the box.

0:06:180:06:22

That leaves 18 mystery letters for you two to choose from.

0:06:220:06:26

-So, take two.

-Thank you very much.

0:06:260:06:27

You pointed to those two. Is that a sign?

0:06:270:06:29

-No! I don't know what they are, love.

-I'll take those two, it's a sign.

0:06:290:06:32

No. I don't know what they are.

0:06:320:06:33

You know that those two letters are not going to be involved in this

0:06:330:06:36

final password. OK?

0:06:360:06:38

It's time to play password two!

0:06:380:06:40

Now, Lisa, you need to get this password to stay in the game.

0:06:470:06:50

-OK.

-OK?

-Yeah.

0:06:500:06:52

Here it is, the second password.

0:06:520:06:54

Have a look.

0:06:540:06:56

Five letters, we're looking for, in this word.

0:06:560:06:59

Let's give you a hint.

0:06:590:07:01

Film. Now, Lisa, your team went first last time, so Paul, you're up first.

0:07:010:07:05

Give me your first letter, please.

0:07:050:07:08

I'm going to go for a P, please.

0:07:080:07:10

A P. Have a P.

0:07:100:07:12

No P. Right, Lisa.

0:07:120:07:15

What are you thinking?

0:07:150:07:16

I fancy an R, please.

0:07:160:07:18

You fancy an R. OK, let's have a look.

0:07:180:07:21

Have we got an R?

0:07:210:07:24

Well done. First letter of this film-type word is R.

0:07:240:07:29

Still with you, Lisa.

0:07:290:07:31

-E.

-E?

0:07:310:07:33

Let's have a look. Have we got an E?

0:07:330:07:34

No. Right, back to you, Paul.

0:07:360:07:38

Let's go for G.

0:07:390:07:42

-G?

-G. I'm a continent man.

0:07:420:07:44

Ooh. Yeah, let's try a G.

0:07:440:07:46

Let's have a little look.

0:07:460:07:47

No.

0:07:480:07:50

Back to you, Lisa.

0:07:500:07:51

An S, please.

0:07:530:07:54

S. S for sugar.

0:07:540:07:56

Let's have a look.

0:07:560:07:58

No S. Right, Paul.

0:07:580:08:01

OK, let's go for a vowel and let's try A.

0:08:010:08:06

A. You'd like to go for a little A.

0:08:060:08:07

Let's have a look.

0:08:070:08:09

Somewhere... No, we don't.

0:08:090:08:12

Back with you, Lisa.

0:08:120:08:13

-An I?

-I.

0:08:130:08:15

I. Let's see.

0:08:150:08:17

I... No.

0:08:190:08:20

Paul?

0:08:200:08:21

Let's go back to the vowels - and we'll go for the U.

0:08:230:08:26

U. Let's have a look.

0:08:260:08:28

Is there a U?

0:08:280:08:29

No! Come on, Lisa, what are you going for now, my love?

0:08:310:08:34

-An L.

-L.

0:08:350:08:37

OK. Have we got an L?

0:08:370:08:39

Ah...

0:08:390:08:40

No. Paul.

0:08:400:08:42

-Aw...

-Back to you.

0:08:420:08:43

-Paul?

-I...

0:08:430:08:46

-Q. Let's got for Q.

-Q!?

0:08:460:08:48

LAUGHTER

0:08:480:08:49

Paul!

0:08:490:08:50

What?

0:08:500:08:52

I'm loving your boldness, Paul.

0:08:520:08:54

Let's go for a Q.

0:08:540:08:56

Any sign of a Q? No.

0:08:560:08:59

-Oh, right.

-Please.

0:08:590:09:00

-A W.

-A W.

0:09:010:09:03

Obviously not.

0:09:030:09:05

I haven't got a clue either.

0:09:050:09:06

-You're going for a W.

-Yeah.

0:09:060:09:08

-No. Paul, back to you.

-OK, there's got to be an O in it,

0:09:100:09:13

so let's go for O.

0:09:130:09:14

O... OK, let's have a look.

0:09:140:09:16

There is an O, yes.

0:09:170:09:19

-Good.

-Right.

0:09:190:09:21

-We know it.

-Go on, Paul.

0:09:210:09:23

-It's your choice, Paul.

-C.

0:09:230:09:25

What's it going to be? C...

0:09:250:09:27

-Aw!

-Yeah.

0:09:270:09:29

-And what are we going for next?

-We're going for a K.

0:09:290:09:32

OK. A K...

0:09:320:09:35

Sorry, girls.

0:09:350:09:36

You haven't got it quite yet, Paul.

0:09:360:09:38

-Don't be too...

-That's true, actually. Erm...

-Don't be too smug.

0:09:380:09:42

Let's see, let's see what the last letter's going to be.

0:09:420:09:44

I think we'll go for a Y.

0:09:440:09:46

A Y. Let's have a look.

0:09:460:09:48

Y... Oh... Yes!

0:09:480:09:51

Oh, loves. Listen, well done!

0:09:560:09:59

Paul, that was absolutely brilliant.

0:09:590:10:02

You cracked the second password, which is Rocky.

0:10:020:10:05

Now...

0:10:050:10:06

TO ROCKY THEME: Dum, dum, dum, dum...

0:10:060:10:08

Dum, dum, dum... That's good.

0:10:080:10:11

Now, by cracking two passwords, Paul, this is exciting,

0:10:110:10:14

that means that you are through to the semifinal.

0:10:140:10:17

Congratulations.

0:10:170:10:19

CHEERING

0:10:190:10:20

Now, once again, as a reward for cracking the password,

0:10:230:10:26

you get to choose two more letters from the Letterbox, so...

0:10:260:10:29

-OK.

-Go ahead.

0:10:290:10:30

Not the red ones, please.

0:10:300:10:31

OK. Oh, I'd like to do the red ones.

0:10:310:10:33

-There's one.

-Lovely.

-And we'll go for one over there.

0:10:330:10:35

-Lovely.

-These ones, as well.

0:10:350:10:37

OK. Lisa and Jo...

0:10:370:10:39

Oh, I'm really sad about this.

0:10:390:10:41

-I hope you've had a good time.

-We've had a lovely time, it's been fab.

0:10:410:10:43

-Yeah, great, thank you.

-Absolutely lovely.

0:10:430:10:46

Thank you so much for playing.

0:10:460:10:47

CHEERING

0:10:470:10:49

Brothers... Now, you two, you've got four letters there,

0:10:510:10:55

which is excellent. They're letters that you know are not going to

0:10:550:10:58

feature in the final password, so keep them safe.

0:10:580:11:01

It's time to meet our next contestants in heat two.

0:11:010:11:04

Hello and welcome, Cat and Sophie.

0:11:100:11:12

So nice to see you. How are you two?

0:11:120:11:14

-Yeah, good.

-Good.

-Yeah. Are you good?

0:11:140:11:16

-How do you know each other?

-We've been best friends since we were five

0:11:160:11:19

-years old.

-Since you were five?

0:11:190:11:21

-Yeah.

-How did you meet? Was it school, or...?

0:11:210:11:23

Yeah, we met at school.

0:11:230:11:25

Actually met in the toilets, both wearing our little blue tracksuits.

0:11:250:11:28

-It was...

-An immediate bond.

0:11:280:11:30

And you've remained friends all throughout your life.

0:11:300:11:32

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

-That is pretty astonishing.

0:11:320:11:35

What really annoys you most about Sophie, Cat?

0:11:350:11:38

I think it's an asset, she's very competitive.

0:11:380:11:40

-Oh, good.

-Which I hope will stand us in good stead for today.

0:11:400:11:42

Good for today. Sophie,

0:11:420:11:44

is there anything that really gets your goat about her?

0:11:440:11:46

Cat is...

0:11:460:11:47

-I'm going to say clever.

-Yeah.

0:11:470:11:49

-Not a know-it-all.

-Yeah.

0:11:490:11:50

-Bit of a smuggins.

-I mean, your words...

0:11:500:11:53

LAUGHTER

0:11:530:11:54

It's really lovely to have you on the show.

0:11:550:11:57

Thank you so much, Cat and Sophie.

0:11:570:11:59

Now, they're up against Simon and Kate.

0:11:590:12:01

Hello, Simon and Kate.

0:12:010:12:03

Ah...

0:12:030:12:05

Did you meet through your matching tracksuits?

0:12:060:12:09

Not quite. We met through our love of maths, unfortunately.

0:12:090:12:13

-Ah...

-Which sounds horrific.

0:12:130:12:15

No! I love it.

0:12:150:12:17

What's your favourite bit of maths?

0:12:170:12:20

What do you love most about maths?

0:12:200:12:22

Algebraic proofs.

0:12:220:12:24

Sorry, Kate?

0:12:240:12:26

What was that?

0:12:260:12:27

What I heard was...

0:12:270:12:29

SHE MUMBLES

0:12:290:12:30

-Go on.

-I feel like such a geek.

0:12:300:12:31

Algebraic proofs.

0:12:310:12:33

Algebraic proofs!

0:12:330:12:35

And, Simon, what's your favourite bit of maths?

0:12:370:12:40

My favourite bit of maths is Pythagoras, yes.

0:12:400:12:42

So you still love maths - and are you...?

0:12:420:12:45

We met on the teacher training course.

0:12:450:12:46

-Oh...

-That's where it was.

-You're both maths teachers.

0:12:460:12:49

-Yes.

-Yes.

-Oh, how lovely.

0:12:490:12:50

That is so, so nice.

0:12:500:12:52

And you know the... Pi?

0:12:520:12:54

Yes. 3.1415926535.

0:12:540:12:57

No, shortcrust pastry.

0:12:570:12:58

With...

0:12:580:12:59

With a little meat filling.

0:13:000:13:02

Aw. It's really lovely to have you on the show.

0:13:020:13:04

-Thank you.

-Now, it's not about numbers though, gang.

0:13:040:13:07

It's about letters. Whoever cracks the most passwords will be going

0:13:070:13:10

through to play Craig and Paul in the semifinal.

0:13:100:13:13

So, Cat and Sophie, who's going to go first?

0:13:130:13:14

-I'm going to go first.

-Sophie.

0:13:140:13:16

And Simon and Kate? Who's going to go first?

0:13:160:13:18

-I'm going to go first.

-Simon. Well done.

0:13:180:13:19

OK, take your positions. Let's play.

0:13:190:13:22

OK, here is your first password.

0:13:270:13:30

Have a little look. Six.

0:13:300:13:32

Six letters in this password.

0:13:320:13:34

We'll give you a little hint, as well.

0:13:340:13:37

Animal kingdom.

0:13:370:13:38

OK.

0:13:380:13:40

We tossed a coin backstage.

0:13:400:13:41

Sophie will go first.

0:13:410:13:43

Can I have your first letter, please, Sophie?

0:13:430:13:45

Please could I go for an E?

0:13:450:13:47

An E? Most certainly. Let's have a little look.

0:13:470:13:50

No.

0:13:520:13:53

Simon? What are you thinking?

0:13:530:13:55

-Mm.

-What do you think?

0:13:550:13:58

I'm hoping that there's going to be an A in there to kick us off.

0:13:580:14:01

OK. Let's go for an A.

0:14:010:14:02

-An A, please.

-Right.

0:14:020:14:04

A? A star?

0:14:040:14:06

A plus? No.

0:14:060:14:07

-No A.

-Right.

0:14:070:14:09

-Sophie.

-I will go for an O.

0:14:090:14:11

An O. Let's have a look.

0:14:110:14:14

Have we got an O?

0:14:140:14:16

No. Simon.

0:14:160:14:17

Quickly run out of vowels, near enough there, so...

0:14:170:14:20

-Mm.

-Hoping there's one in there.

0:14:200:14:21

-Let's go for an I.

-I. Let's have a little look.

0:14:210:14:24

Yes, well done.

0:14:250:14:27

Still with you, Simon.

0:14:270:14:29

Let's try a T, please, Mel.

0:14:290:14:31

A T. OK, sure.

0:14:310:14:32

T for trigonometry.

0:14:320:14:33

LAUGHTER

0:14:330:14:36

Let's have a look. T.

0:14:380:14:40

No. Sophie.

0:14:400:14:42

I will go for a U.

0:14:420:14:44

U. Which is what I got in my maths O Level.

0:14:440:14:47

LAUGHTER

0:14:470:14:50

Let's have a look. Is there a U?

0:14:510:14:54

Oh, very well done, Sophie.

0:14:540:14:56

OK, that's opened things up a little bit.

0:14:560:14:58

-What are you thinking?

-I will go for an S.

0:14:580:15:01

S. S for set square.

0:15:010:15:03

Have we got an S?

0:15:060:15:08

No. Right, Simon.

0:15:090:15:11

-Back to you.

-Let's try...

0:15:110:15:14

a... M.

0:15:140:15:16

M. M, M, M.

0:15:160:15:19

No M.

0:15:190:15:21

Right, Sophie. Back in your court.

0:15:210:15:23

Erm... N.

0:15:230:15:25

-N.

-November.

-November. N.

0:15:250:15:27

Mr Nutkins, who taught us maths.

0:15:270:15:29

No, right, good.

0:15:290:15:31

Still with you, Sophie.

0:15:310:15:32

-Mm.

-Yeah.

0:15:320:15:35

Er... Um...

0:15:350:15:38

I will go for a G.

0:15:380:15:40

A G. Let's have a look.

0:15:400:15:42

Have we got a G?

0:15:420:15:44

No G.

0:15:440:15:46

Right, Simon, back with you.

0:15:460:15:47

I will try an F, or two, please.

0:15:470:15:51

F. F, for fiercely difficult sum.

0:15:510:15:55

Have we got an F?

0:15:550:15:56

Yes, we do.

0:15:560:15:58

And the first letter?

0:15:580:15:59

I'm hoping there's a P.

0:15:590:16:01

A P.

0:16:010:16:03

Let's have a look and see if it's a P.

0:16:030:16:05

Yes.

0:16:070:16:08

Well done, Simon.

0:16:090:16:13

Oh!

0:16:130:16:14

Stonkingly good work.

0:16:140:16:15

-Thank you.

-You cracked the first password, which was puffin.

0:16:150:16:18

Now, as you know, you get to choose two letters from the Letterbox.

0:16:180:16:21

So, go for your life. Not the red ones, please.

0:16:210:16:24

Mm. We'll have this one...

0:16:240:16:26

Two from the middle.

0:16:260:16:27

-I feel like Carol Vorderman.

-I was going to say, it's a different,

0:16:270:16:30

different show, that, isn't it?

0:16:300:16:32

Yes!

0:16:320:16:33

Right, they are important because they're not in the final password,

0:16:330:16:36

OK? OK, listen... Still everything to play for.

0:16:360:16:38

Yeah? Feeling good?

0:16:380:16:40

-Confident.

-Excellent.

0:16:400:16:42

It's best of three, it's time to play password two.

0:16:420:16:44

Right. Kate, you're 1-0 up.

0:16:500:16:52

-Mm-hm.

-So, crack this little password and you're straight through

0:16:520:16:55

to the semifinal. OK?

0:16:550:16:58

I keep winking at you, I'm sorry.

0:16:580:17:00

I don't know why, I just keep winking at you.

0:17:000:17:02

But just go with the flow.

0:17:020:17:04

Erm... Here is the second password.

0:17:040:17:06

Have a look at this.

0:17:060:17:08

Ooh. A three and then a four.

0:17:090:17:12

And your hint for this word, or these words...

0:17:120:17:14

Song title.

0:17:160:17:18

Nice. Kate, it's your turn to go first.

0:17:180:17:20

So, can we have your first letter, please?

0:17:200:17:23

I will go for an E, please.

0:17:230:17:25

An E. Sure, Kate.

0:17:250:17:27

Let's have a look. Have we got a little E in here?

0:17:270:17:29

Oh, lots of Es in there.

0:17:300:17:32

What are you thinking, Kate? Still with you.

0:17:320:17:35

I will go for a D.

0:17:350:17:37

-A D.

-D, please.

0:17:370:17:38

OK. Let's have a look.

0:17:380:17:39

Have we got a D?

0:17:390:17:41

D...

0:17:410:17:44

Wow, well done.

0:17:440:17:46

-Kate?

-I would like to go for a H, please.

0:17:460:17:50

An H. Let's have a look.

0:17:500:17:53

Oh, no.

0:17:530:17:55

-Kate, still with you.

-Can I have a Y, please?

0:17:550:17:57

A Y! Oh, yes.

0:17:570:18:00

Yes. Yes.

0:18:000:18:02

Have we got a Y? Very good.

0:18:020:18:05

-Now what?

-Maybe a J?

0:18:050:18:07

A J.

0:18:070:18:08

Have we got a J?

0:18:080:18:10

Yes, we do.

0:18:100:18:12

-And a U, please.

-And a U.

0:18:120:18:14

Let's have a look.

0:18:140:18:15

Oh!

0:18:160:18:18

Kate! Cracking good work.

0:18:230:18:25

Two passwords out of the park.

0:18:250:18:28

Amazing. Which means that you're through to the semifinal.

0:18:280:18:30

Congratulations.

0:18:300:18:32

-Thank you.

-Partners, come and join me.

0:18:320:18:35

Sophie!

0:18:350:18:37

She's doing that face again...

0:18:380:18:40

Now, once again, as a reward for cracking the password,

0:18:410:18:44

you can have another two letters, from the grey selection.

0:18:440:18:48

-Not the red ones.

-Pick some good ones.

0:18:480:18:49

-Some good ones.

-I want that one.

-Pick some good ones.

0:18:490:18:52

There we go. Cat and Sophie, I'm very sorry to say this is goodbye.

0:18:520:18:56

Thank you so much for playing.

0:18:560:18:58

-Thank you.

-Cat and Sophie.

0:18:580:19:03

So, Simon and Kate, we've now got

0:19:030:19:04

those four letters that you know are not

0:19:040:19:07

involved in this final password.

0:19:070:19:09

Hang onto them. It's time to play the semifinal.

0:19:090:19:12

Paul, Craig, Simon and Kate, welcome to the semifinal.

0:19:170:19:21

In this semifinal, there's just one password to crack, OK?

0:19:210:19:24

It's the name of a famous person.

0:19:240:19:27

And this person could be dead or alive.

0:19:270:19:29

The team that cracks the password will, of course, go on to the final

0:19:290:19:32

and play for the money.

0:19:320:19:34

Let's play.

0:19:340:19:35

Good luck to everybody. Here is the semifinal password.

0:19:410:19:43

Have a look at this.

0:19:430:19:45

Right, four and then eight.

0:19:460:19:49

It's a famous person.

0:19:490:19:51

Now, we tossed a coin backstage.

0:19:510:19:53

Paul and Craig, you won the toss, so you get to go first.

0:19:530:19:55

We'll start... Go on, do you want to go...? You start.

0:19:550:19:58

-I'll start.

-You start.

-I'll start with R, please.

0:19:580:20:00

An R? Yeah. Have we got an R?

0:20:000:20:03

Yes, we do. Well done. That's in the surname.

0:20:030:20:05

-H.

-OK.

0:20:050:20:07

You said it four times. Just say it.

0:20:070:20:08

-H, please.

-H.

0:20:080:20:10

You're going to go for a H.

0:20:100:20:12

Oh, well done. You're doing very well so far, brothers.

0:20:140:20:17

-Still with you.

-OK.

0:20:170:20:19

Can we have an E?

0:20:190:20:22

-Please.

-Yes. An E.

0:20:220:20:23

Paul and Craig. Let's have a look.

0:20:230:20:26

Have we got an E? Yes, we do.

0:20:260:20:27

Still with you, guys.

0:20:270:20:29

Can I try...

0:20:310:20:33

-a D?

-A D?

0:20:330:20:34

A D. Yes.

0:20:340:20:36

No D. Right, Simon and Kate, your turn to take the reins.

0:20:380:20:41

-An A?

-Yeah.

0:20:440:20:46

Try and get another vowel.

0:20:460:20:48

-Yes?

-We're going to try for an A, please.

0:20:480:20:51

An A, OK, let's have a look.

0:20:510:20:53

Have we got an A in this name?

0:20:530:20:55

No A. Interesting.

0:20:560:20:58

I'm going to choose. Can we have an N, please?

0:20:580:21:03

-An N?

-Nnn.

-Nnn!

0:21:030:21:06

N. Lads, it's still with you.

0:21:080:21:10

-Keep going.

-Can I...

0:21:100:21:12

-Go on, go for it.

-Can we have an S, please?

-An S.

0:21:120:21:16

OK.

0:21:160:21:17

-It's a famous person?

-Yeah.

0:21:200:21:21

-Famous person.

-Famous person?

0:21:210:21:23

Could be dead, could be alive.

0:21:230:21:24

They've got it.

0:21:240:21:26

-What do you think, boys?

-Can we have an O, please?

0:21:260:21:29

An O.

0:21:290:21:31

Have we got an O?

0:21:310:21:33

Rose somebody...

0:21:360:21:38

Right, lads, what's the letter choice?

0:21:380:21:41

THEY SQUEAL

0:21:410:21:42

LAUGHTER

0:21:420:21:45

Can we have a...

0:21:450:21:47

-J...?

-A J.

0:21:470:21:49

Get the spelling right.

0:21:500:21:52

-A J.

-Can we have...?

-Yes.

0:21:520:21:53

Can we have a U, please?

0:21:530:21:56

A U. Have we got a U there?

0:21:560:21:58

-Yes. Good.

-Can we have an I, please?

0:21:580:22:00

I, you most certainly may.

0:22:000:22:02

-BOTH:

-And we'll save it for our amazing mother, M!

0:22:020:22:06

CHEERING

0:22:060:22:09

Is it an M?

0:22:110:22:12

It is! Jose Mourinho.

0:22:120:22:14

Listen, congratulations, Paul and Craig,

0:22:170:22:19

you're through to the final.

0:22:190:22:21

You've cracked that semifinal password.

0:22:210:22:24

Simon and Kate. Please, if you wouldn't mind handing over those letters....

0:22:240:22:28

-Absolutely.

-..to our friends, Paul and Craig.

0:22:280:22:31

-Thank you.

-Good luck.

-Thanks a lot.

0:22:310:22:33

Good luck. Ah, he's a charmer, isn't he?

0:22:330:22:36

I know!

0:22:360:22:37

Simon and Kate, thank you so much for playing.

0:22:370:22:39

Now, Paul and Craig, you've now got eight letters to help you crack

0:22:440:22:48

the final password. OK?

0:22:480:22:50

I know. Scary, exciting.

0:22:500:22:52

Listen, it's time to unlock the Letterbox.

0:22:520:22:54

Paul and Craig, the Luke and Matt Goss of Letterbox.

0:22:590:23:03

I know. I don't know how we got here.

0:23:030:23:05

-Listen, you steamed through.

-We hit lucky, I think.

0:23:050:23:07

Now, you know what, just one final password stands between you two

0:23:070:23:11

and £2,500.

0:23:110:23:13

Great.

0:23:130:23:14

Here it is.

0:23:140:23:16

OK. We're looking for an eight-letter password.

0:23:160:23:20

There are no repeat letters, OK?

0:23:200:23:22

We're not going to give you a single hint.

0:23:220:23:24

But, what you do have instead, of course,

0:23:240:23:26

is the eight letters in front of you that you've won along the way, which

0:23:260:23:29

we know are not going to be in the password.

0:23:290:23:31

So, shall we have a little look?

0:23:310:23:33

-Do you want me to hand them to you?

-Oh, please.

0:23:330:23:35

Ceremonially. Thank you very much.

0:23:350:23:37

I can tell you, there will be no X.

0:23:370:23:39

You picked that one!

0:23:390:23:40

LAUGHTER

0:23:400:23:42

No E.

0:23:430:23:44

No O.

0:23:460:23:47

No B.

0:23:490:23:51

No V.

0:23:530:23:54

No Z.

0:23:570:23:58

LAUGHTER

0:23:580:23:59

No R.

0:24:010:24:02

And no N.

0:24:040:24:05

Right, now, the good news, on the one hand,

0:24:060:24:09

you know that those eight letters are not going to be involved in that

0:24:090:24:12

final password. The slightly worse news, on the other hand, is every

0:24:120:24:16

time you make a mistake, £500 will

0:24:160:24:19

be spirited away from your £2,500 prize.

0:24:190:24:23

Very good luck to both of you.

0:24:230:24:24

-Thank you.

-Let's unlock the Letterbox.

0:24:240:24:27

We've got to do a brothers' embrace.

0:24:300:24:32

-Brothers' embrace for this one.

-Brothers' embrace.

0:24:320:24:34

Lucky rub. Lucky rub. Lucky rub.

0:24:340:24:36

Right...

0:24:360:24:37

Well, we're going to start...

0:24:370:24:39

-Served us well.

-Served us well throughout.

0:24:390:24:42

M for our dear mother.

0:24:420:24:44

M for mother.

0:24:440:24:46

Is there going to be an M in this final password?

0:24:460:24:49

Oh, no.

0:24:490:24:51

So, you're down to 2,000.

0:24:510:24:52

Let's get a couple of vowels in.

0:24:520:24:54

-A couple of vowels, OK.

-So, we've got to think, A, I, U.

0:24:540:24:56

-It's got to be A.

-We've got to go for the A.

0:24:560:24:58

-See what that brings.

-OK.

0:24:580:25:00

-We'll go for the A.

-Going for the A?

0:25:000:25:02

-Yes, please.

-Have got an A in this final password?

0:25:020:25:05

It's fine.

0:25:050:25:07

-Yes. Well done.

-There's got to be another vowel.

0:25:070:25:09

Shall we try and pick one out?

0:25:090:25:10

Well, there's not many left. An I, and a U.

0:25:100:25:13

Should we go for the I?

0:25:130:25:15

We said we'd go consonants.

0:25:150:25:17

-Let's go consonants.

-I think we've got to go for S or T.

0:25:170:25:20

Let's try for the S.

0:25:200:25:21

-We'll go for the S.

-S?

0:25:210:25:24

Have we got an S in this final password?

0:25:240:25:26

No, we don't. Listen...

0:25:260:25:28

Still good money. £1,500.

0:25:280:25:30

Still up for grabs.

0:25:300:25:31

Right. Come on, what's your next letter choice?

0:25:310:25:34

-OK.

-We'll try the T.

0:25:340:25:36

-The T.

-T for tea.

0:25:360:25:39

Let's go for T.

0:25:390:25:40

Oh, OK.

0:25:420:25:43

Right, what next, boys?

0:25:430:25:45

You've got to have a vowel before the O,

0:25:450:25:47

I would presume. So it's either going

0:25:470:25:49

to be either the U or the I. Something...

0:25:490:25:52

Parquet. Is it parquet? P, A, R.

0:25:520:25:55

What about the L? Shall we put the L?

0:25:550:25:57

-Maybe the L before the T.

-Para...para... No, there's only...

0:25:570:26:00

-I, please.

-I.

0:26:000:26:02

CRAIG GASPS

0:26:020:26:03

Let's have a look.

0:26:030:26:04

Yes. Well done.

0:26:050:26:07

OK, come on, lads.

0:26:070:26:09

-Come on.

-What have you got about the L?

0:26:090:26:11

I've just got a thing about the L!

0:26:110:26:14

All right. If you don't think...

0:26:140:26:15

-All right, do the L.

-Are you going to go for the L?

0:26:150:26:18

-The L.

-The L.

0:26:180:26:19

L, have we got an L?

0:26:190:26:21

P. I've got a funny feeling there is P, A, something,

0:26:250:26:28

I don't know why...

0:26:280:26:30

Let's go D. I'm thinking P.

0:26:300:26:32

All right. You go P, then. You said P for Paul.

0:26:320:26:35

I'll have a P.

0:26:350:26:36

OK. P.

0:26:360:26:37

-No.

-Right.

0:26:390:26:41

Got to be D for dad. We're going to go D for dad.

0:26:410:26:43

Have we got a D in this final password?

0:26:440:26:47

-Are we missing something really obvious?

-I don't know.

0:26:470:26:50

OK. Right, come on.

0:26:500:26:52

Now, £1,000 up for grabs here.

0:26:520:26:54

It's got to be the U between...

0:26:540:26:56

Do the U and then the...?

0:26:560:26:57

-Right, OK.

-Why we not seeing it?

0:26:570:26:59

-I don't know. We should be seeing this.

-DAU...

0:26:590:27:01

Let's try the U, please.

0:27:010:27:03

You want to try the U. Let's go for the U.

0:27:030:27:06

-Oh, God!

-Oh, no.

0:27:080:27:10

-What are we missing, come on?

-£500 is still there.

0:27:100:27:13

Can you see it?

0:27:130:27:14

-Oh!

-Got it!

-Got it.

0:27:140:27:16

-BOTH:

-Can we have a Y, please.

0:27:160:27:18

You're going to go for Y, OK. Going to go for Y.

0:27:180:27:21

-Yes.

-And now we'll have G, please.

0:27:230:27:26

-A G.

-Why could we not see it earlier?

0:27:260:27:29

And your final choice?

0:27:290:27:31

-H, please.

-H.

0:27:310:27:32

CHEERING

0:27:340:27:36

£500.

0:27:430:27:45

My friend. Yes, straight in there.

0:27:450:27:47

-I'm the older brother.

-Paul, there you go.

0:27:470:27:49

-Thank you.

-Now,...

0:27:490:27:51

Thank you!

0:27:510:27:53

490 and 10.

0:27:530:27:56

Thank you so much for playing.

0:27:560:27:57

Lovely. Now...

0:27:570:27:59

CHEERING

0:27:590:28:00

He's counting it, just to check.

0:28:040:28:06

And just to prove that our final password was, indeed, daylight.

0:28:060:28:10

D, A, Y, L, I, G, H, T.

0:28:100:28:16

So, join me next time to see more brave contestants battle against

0:28:160:28:20

a big scary box, full of lovely cash. Bye-bye.

0:28:200:28:23

Hosted by Mel Giedroyc, Letterbox is a game show where pairs of contestants go head to head to crack a series of passwords in an attempt to take home £2,500 in cash. As the contestants solve the passwords, they win letters that help them later in the game. These letters better their chances of cracking the final password which unlocks the letterbox holding the cash prize. But if they end up as the losing pair along the way, they have to surrender all the letters they have won to the winning pair, who then go through to the semi-final.

This simple yet addictive word game, created by David Young, producer of The Weakest Link and Eggheads, is designed to be played along at home with friends and family - can they solve the mystery word and crack open the letterbox?
