Tipping Point fans in hysterics as contestant makes mortifying TV blunder – and even Ben Shephard loses it

TIPPING Point viewers were left in hysterics after a contestant made a mortifying blunder and confused journalist Trevor McDonald with a Game of Thrones character.

On Sunday afternoon, Tipping Point saw three new famous faces take on the machine – and it would be an episode that will live long in the mind of host Ben Shephard.

Yvonne decided to take the first question, with Ben asking: "Which veteran British news presenter shares their name with a character in the TV series Game of Thrones?"

Unsure, Yvonne admitted: "I know nothing about Games of Thrones. I have never seen it, so I am sorry, but I am going to pass it to you."

Ben then asked: "Dai, have you watched Game of Thrones?" to which he replied equally as worried: "I haven't, never watched one episode.

"I don't know why but my head is telling me, Trevor McDonald."

Ben giggled at the answer and agreed: "I mean, why not, he is a news presenter and veteran broadcaster.

"Dai, you have gone for Trevor McDonald, a character in Game of Thrones, veteran newscaster, was it, Trevor McDonald?"

Unfortunately, the answer they were both looking for was Jon Snow, which meant Yvonne was able to put the counter into the machine.

Fans of the show almost immediately took to Twitter, with many of them struggling to contain themselves over the hilarious answer.

Alongside an array of shocked-faced emojis, one person penned: "Well, I never! Trevor McDonald in Game of Thrones? Must have missed that episode."

Echoing their comments, someone else quipped: "Ah yes, that well-known Game Of Thrones character of Trevor McDonald."

While a third added: "That's the best thing I have heard all day. Trevor, you need to get yourself onto Game of Thrones."

Facing Dai in the third round, the pair went back and forth, but it was ultimately Yvonne who made it to the final round.

She had a successful round and managed to make £3,450 and decided not to take the risk of the jackpot coin saying the machine had "not been nice all day".

As Ben gave her the option to see if the trade for another three counters would have worked, the second counter pushed the jackpot over the edge and left her devastated.

Tipping Point airs weekdays from 4pm on ITV.
