“That’s awesome,” an excited Dom said.

His second mystery prize was a six-person inflatable hot tub.

“No way! Amazing!” he cried. “Yes way, Dom, very nicely done, well done you,” Ben Shephard said.

Whilst Dom might have been excited about his prizes on the show, viewers weren’t as impressed.

Some even went so far as to brand the mystery prizes as “spectacularly naff”.

Is it just me or are the mystery prizes on #tippingpoint so spectacularly naff?” one viewer tweeted. 

“A ride on a flight simulator and a hot tub – a double whammy of [bleep] mysteries!” another said.

“Christ, a six-person inflatable hot tub looks like something they had leftover from the middle at Lidl…,” a third wrote.

“Has he seen the cost of water nowadays to fill such a tub? And that’s before the electricity to heat it,” another joked.
