Tipping Point contestants in frenzy as Ben Shephard slams player’s ‘brutal’ move

Tipping Point host Ben Shephard couldn't help but brand one contestant's move as "brutal" on today's episode, as he missed out on a major win.

Scottish player Malcy dropped his counter through drop zone number one, leaving a pile of profitable double counters teetering on the edge.

Unfortunately, he failed to tip the counters into the slot, meaning he was left with zero pounds – setting another player up for a win.

Drawing in a breath, Ben looked floored by Malcy's bad luck, as he exclaimed: "Brutal for you Malcy, you’ve set it up nicely.

"But you stay with nothing in the bank."

The other contestants failed to hide their excitement, as they scrambled to answer the next question correctly in a bid to steal Malcy's pile of counters.

Player Leary was the lucky victor, as he was chosen as the next contestant to drop a counter into the machine.

Ben announced: "You got that right just in time Leary."

Fellow player Ali made it clear she was feeling a little jealous, as she sarcastically wondered which drop zone he would choose.

She snipped: "Drop zone one I think…"

Leary proved successful, racking up hundreds in the bank as Malcy watched on in disappointment, having lost out big time.
