Tipping Point host Ben Shephard hits out at contestant over shocking behaviour

Ben Shephard didn't hold back when he called one contestant out on her method of play as he hosted the latest episode of Tipping Point.

The popular host made a brutal swipe at hopeful finalist Rebecca as she lined up against fellow contestants Joe and Les to compete for the £10,000 jackpot on Wednesday's (May 11) show.

Ben, 47, reprimanded Rebecca for her "shocking behaviour" on the programme when she failed to press her buzzer quick enough, frustrating the GMB star.

He was quizzing the contestants in round one when he asked the team a question about how turbulence affects planes which Les buzzed in to answer correctly.

But it was Rebecca who made a stir in the rush to answer, with Ben noticing the lengthy delay that occurred when she whacked her buzzer to attempt to answer first.

The miffed presenter noted: "Rebecca you're very slow. It's shocking."

Seeing his point, Rebecca couldn't help but agree with Ben's damning assessment of her game method as she laughed and responded: "It is shocking!"

Unfortunately for Rebecca her inability to react swiftly saw her very quickly crash out of the show, becoming the first contestant to get booted off the show and missing her chance at the cash prize.

Some viewers however were relieved to see the back of Rebecca as they felt she was a little too chatty for their liking.

Taking to Twitter to complain about her commentary one viewer said: "You're out Rebecca. I won't miss your constant jabbering. Goodbye."

Another added: "She’s a bit of a chatty Kathy is Rebecca."

A third joked: "I would like Rebecca to be gagged please."

Joe and Les carried on to battle it out for their place in the final with Les besting Joe to get his chance at heading home with the prize.

Tipping Point airs weekdays at 4pm on ITV and ITV Hub.
