Louise Minchin left red-faced after brutal takedown from Ben Shephard on Tipping Point: Lucky Stars | The SunJuly 18, 2022
LOUISE Minchin was left red-faced after Ben Shephard took a swipe at her during a recent episode of Tipping Point.
During a repeat instalment of the ITV game show, former BBC Breakfast presenter Louise took on the machine to win a large sum of money for her chosen charity.
During the round, host Ben took a jab at the BBC star after she answered his question before he could finish.
During the beginning of the first round, Louise had only made one correct answer and was determined to get more money banked.
During one round, Ben asked: "Lord Adonis and Baroness Blower are seated in the House of Lords," before Louise buzzed in.
However, she realised she had made an error and expressed: "Oh, I have messed up. You didn't end the question. They could be Lords…."

Ben immediately stopped her and revealed: "No, Lord Adonis and Baroness Blower are seated in the House of Commons as members of which political party.
"Labour part was the correct answer we were after Louise, I am afraid."
The counter was then moved to the penalty spot for the contestants to play for once the round had ended.
Louise soon learnt the error of her ways and allowed Ben to finish the question when buzzing in for an answer.
He asked: "Cooking with Pooh is a children's recipe book featuring which famous honey-loving bear was first created by which author?"
Louise buzzed in: "A. A. Milne," to which Ben quipped: "A. A. Milne is right, Louise. See what happens when you listen to the whole question?"
She laughed and added: "Honestly, I was holding myself back!"

The third round, however, saw Louise's downfall as she was eliminated by Josh, pushing out a staggering 14 counters, leaving him with £3,900.
Ben commented: "Louise, sadly, we have found your Tipping Point, but the good news is you’ve won £2600 for your charity."
Tipping Point Lucky Stars airs Saturday from 4pm on ITV.
