Tipping Point viewers left flabbergasted over ITV show’s ‘easy’ questions

Tipping Point fans were baffled over the ITV show's 'easy' questions during Thursday's instalment.

A player named Richard was doing incredibly well and racked up over £2000 by the second round of the series.

His impressive quick-fire round saw Richard answer an incredible five questions correctly before running out of time.

However, some fans were distracted as they pointed out a particularly easy question about the alphabet.

Presenter Ben Shephard asked the player: "What is the penultimate letter of the English alphabet?"

Richard replied 'Y' which is correct, but some viewers pointed out the question was 'easy'.

They took to Twitter, as one viewer said: "'What is the penultimate letter of the alphabet?' Are you joking me, ITV?!"

While another penned: "Easiest questions on a quiz show ever today".

"What is the penultimate the letter of the alphabet??? Who writes these questions??? FFS", added a third.

Richard continued to answer question after question correctly and was the lucky player to make it through to the last round.

This meant he was in with the chance of winning the hugely sought after £10,000 jackpot prize.

He racked up an impressive £3,500, but the jackpot counter was wedged into the far corner, making it impossible to retrieve.

Richard decided to take the money rather than trade it for more counters as it wasn't likely they would win him the £10k.

Another question that left viewers watching at home perplexed was one asked to a player named Grace.

Ben had asked her how many hours there are in two full days.

She replied 96, but quickly realised her error as the correct number of hours is 48.

One viewer tweeted: "96 hours in 2 DAYS?!"

Another added: "96 hours = 2 days? I suppose in these crazy times I could see why she gave that answer", referring to the current lockdown.

A third chuckled: "96 hours in two full days, who knew", with three laughing emojis.

Tipping Point airs weekdays at 4pm on ITV.
