A contestant on Tipping Point made host Ben Shephard’s jaw drop when she mistook him for her partner, Bob.
The blunder caused hysterics in the Good Morning Britain studio this morning (Friday January 24).
Kate Garraway asked viewers if they were wondering why she was calling him Bob.
“If you go on Tipping Point, it’s a big moment,” she began the story.
“Fans of Tipping Point, they want to go on it, they want to be part of it, they’re looking forward to it.
“‘We’re going to meet Ben Shephard, we’re going to meet Ben Shephard!’ And then they meet Ben Shephard and, well, if you’re Margaret, they can’t remember you’re Ben Shephard!”
It was then that Ben replayed the incident from last night’s Tipping Point (Thursday January 23).
The clip showed Margaret, who asked Ben: “Two again please Bob.”
“Who’s Bob?” Ben asked through giggles.
“My partner,” she replied before holding her head in her hands.
Is your partner really called Bob?
“Is your partner really called Bob?” asked Ben.
Margaret said: “I’m thinking I’m taking you home with me!”
“At least Bob isn’t her dog!” Kate joked back in the studio.
The ‘Bob’ incident isn’t the only revelation connected to Ben this week.
“I seem to remember she was northern and that’s about all I can remember,” he winced.
