‘Wrong sister!’ says the narrator. Ben Shephard is irritated as a Tipping Point player makes a mistake with Eugenie.
In Tuesday’s new show, Ben Shephard was left agonizing about one Tipping Point player’s pricey gaffe, when they mixed up royal sisters Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice.
Ben Shephard welcomed four aspiring quizzers into the ITV program on Tuesday’s new episode of Tipping Point in the hopes of winning big money. With the illusive £10,000 jackpot on the line, contestants Charlie, Peter, Maia, and Amrik felt they had the expertise to win – but this was not the case for Charlie, who was forced to leave the program after failing to add any money to her reward pool.
Charlie made a mistake when it came to her understanding of the Royal Family while trying to get a counter to put in the Tipping Point machine.
Charlie was keen to gain headway on her competitors after placing two counters into the machine with no returns when the moment arrived.
Ben from Good Morning Britain asked, “Which member of the Royal Family married Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in Windsor in 2020?”
Charlie rushed in ahead of her teammates to respond to Ben’s brainteaser: “Eugenie?” “Do you mean Princess Eugenie?”
Ben let out a frustrated exhale before correcting Charlie: “Beatrice!” Ben instantly saw her error and let out a frustrated exhale before correcting Charlie: “Beatrice!”
As Ben’s agony continued, Charlie buried her head in her hands and exclaimed, “Oh, Charlie!”
“I’m sorry!” he continued. I’m afraid it’s the wrong sister!
Ben warned her, “We have to steal that final counter of yours, it’s gone into the punishment pot.”
“You have now spent all three of your counters, therefore for the time being, you are out,” the Tipping Point host added.
“In the penalty pool, there are still two counters to be won. Everyone will have an opportunity to compete for those who advance to the final round.”
Charlie, on the other hand, was unable to capitalize on the penalty pool, with Maia swooping in to claim the remaining counters.
Charlie said her goodbyes with nothing in her prize fund as the first round came to an end, but Maia sailed through with £2,050.
With £450, Peter qualified for round two, while Amrik made it with £250.
Maia’s excellent form continued in round two, when she defeated Amrik for £2,200, and Peter joined her in the final head-to-head. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
