Adam was clearly struggling and, mixing up his Dicks, blurted out “Van Whittington”.

The answer was Dick Turpin, not Dick Whittington. And who is Van when he’s at home?

How did viewers react?

One viewer joked: “Adam says it’s been great, and is now off, hoping to avoid Dick Van Whittington on his way home #tippingpoint.”

Another wrote: “Dick Van Whittington [cry-laugh emoji]. I damn near spat my tea out.”

Did Adam say Dick Van Whitty? Hilarious.

“Few people have ever managed to confuse Dick Whittington, Dick Van Dyke and Dick Turpin all at once #tippingpoint,”

Finally, one viewer said: “Did Adam say Dick Van Whitty? Hilarious [cry-laugh emoji].”
