Ben Shephard referred to the Tipping Point counters as danglers

Elsewhere, other viewers couldn’t help but comment on Ben’s flirty language.

 Numerous times Ben described the counters that were hanging over the tipping point as “danglers”.

Taking to Twitter, one wrote: “Ben is filthy today, danglers, long rods, good shoves.”

Another said: “Wonder if this is secretly a porn shoot, with all these mentions of bloody danglers.”

Also, on the show, contestant Barrie who was playing alongside Caroline, David and Michelle to win the jackpot, had viewers distracted by his likeness to actor Neil Burgess.

Neil is famous for playing the late Barry Scott in the Cillit Bang adverts.

One fan wrote on Twitter: “Is Barrie the Cillit Bang bloke?”

We can’t see it ourselves.

Nevertheless, Barrie was quick to impress with his sharp general knowledge skills and scored six points in the quick-fire round.

But he was pipped to the post by Caroline, who walked away with a whopping £10,000 after an impressive trade with her penultimate counter.

Tipping Point airs weekdays at 4pm on ITV.
