Ben Shephard gobsmacked as Tipping Point contestant makes Ninja Warrior UK dig

Tipping Point was back on our screens this afternoon as ITV aired another throwback episode of the popular game show.

Host Ben Shephard welcomed four contestants to the famous ITV studio as they battled it out to win the highly sought-after cash prizes.

Tony, Becki, Elliot, and Evelyn answered a series of questions to win turns on an arcade-style machine.

Dropping tokens down a choice of four chutes, they each hoped to knock piles of the counters off a moving shelf – the more they collected, the greater the prize fund.

Becki was first to be sent home followed by Elliot – leaving Tony and Evelyn to go head-to-head.

Tony made it through to the final round today and the contestant made a big confession which left Ben gobsmacked.

Ben asked Tony: "Which member of the girl group The Saturdays is a presenter on the TV show Nina Warrior UK?"

Tony admitted that he had never watched the show – leaving Ninja Warrior UK host Ben shocked.

Ben, 44, joked: "Oh my goodness me.

"It's a great show."

After deliberating, Tony decided to go for Frankie Bridge but the answer was Rochelle Humes.

Ben added: "It's Rochelle who presents Ninja Warrior UK with me and Kammy [Chris Kamara]."

The television presenter was not the only one who was shocked at Tony's bombshell.

Viewers at home rushed to their keyboards to discuss Tony's admission.

Taking to Twitter, one penned: "How can you not watch Ninja Warrior UK?"

A second posted: "It was Rochelle who presents Ninja Warrior UK alongside Ben and Kamara, not Frankie."

Another added: "Oops Ninja Warrior question on Tipping Point and the guy confessed he doesn’t watch it."

Tony didn't end up winning the jackpot today but the contestant did win some prizes.

Tipping Point airs weekdays on ITV at 4pm
