Tipping Point viewers in hysterics over contestant's name – but there's a catch | The Sun

THOSE tuning into Tipping Point were left in hysterics after a contestant revealed their name during the introductions.

Tuesday afternoon's episode of the ITV quiz show saw Hannah, Alison and Satnam take on the extraordinary machine in the hope of winning a cash jackpot.


As the trio introduced themselves to host Ben Shephard, viewers soon turned their attention to one contestant in particular.

As Satnam made his debut on the show, dozens took to Twitter in their droves after his name was confused with something else.

Alongside an array of shocked-faced emojis, one person penned: "Is it just me that thought Satnam introduced himself as Satnav?"

Echoing their comments, someone else said: "I genuinely thought his name was Satnav. How funny would that be?"

While a third quipped: "Nice to meet you, Satnav! Sorry, I mean, erm, Satnam."

This afternoon's instalment comes after a contestant yesterday was branded as the "dimmest player of all time".

Stepping up in a bid to win the coveted £10,000 jackpot counter was Adil, but his general knowledge appeared to let him down.

Ben asked her a number of questions and, with some of them almost giving away the answer, he failed to capitalise.

The host first asked: "How many different primary colours feature on the national flag of the United Kingdom?"

Feeling confident, Adil answered: "One," however, he was brutally shut down by Ben who revealed: "Two."

The Union Jack sees red, white and blue make up the colours of the flag in which are combined the Crosses of St. George, St. Andrew and St. Patrick.
