Tipping Point fans were “confused” by the significant format change for the 10th anniversary show airing on ITV screens.
When the show returned to screens on Tuesday, ITV viewers quickly noticed a change to their favorite quiz show, headed by Good Morning Britain’s Ben Shephard.
When Ben introduced contestants who would participate in the old-fashioned coin machine in hopes of winning big, fans quickly noticed there were only three original puzzles instead of four.
Taking to Twitter, one fan asked: “What magic is this? Only 3 contestants. When did this case happen, “as another said: ‘Did contestant four evaporate? ”
A third ITV viewer wrote: “I’m confused there are only 3 candidates?? as someone else asked a similar question: “When does tipping start with 3 contestants?”
Another fan weighed in to say they “didn’t like this new format” when another confused viewer asked, “I think Tipping Point started with 4 contestants?”
Host Ben Shephard announced a change to the series, which first debuted in 2012, as it returns for a brand new season.
To mark the anniversary, Ben told This Morning’s Vernon Kay and Josie Gibson that the new series might look a little bit different.
He told the TV presenters: “We love the support we’ve had from so many people who have watched it, ten years of Tipping Point, thanks to everyone who watched it.
“A few changes to this series, you can see only three contestants, so you’ll see that in the 4pm daytime shows on ITV.”
These changes were also posted on Tipping Point’s official social media account: “The brand new Tipping Point is back at ITV. And to celebrate your 10th anniversary on screen, things have been shaken up in the studio a little…”
Ahead of the new series, Ben told the Mirror that the silliest answers on his quiz show come from being pressured, and he claims he’s “constantly doing stupid things for himself.” stupid” in his final moments on the cutting room floor.
Ben insists answering test questions to try to win £10,000 is not as easy as it looks, saying: ‘These people are under pressure in an environment and their minds are turned off. should be empty and they can’t think of anything and the words “must not” have no meaning. And I just have so much admiration for all of them.
“There have been some amazing responses, but it’s fair to all the participants, it was incredibly brave of them to take on the machine. And I hate to think that someone is going to be nervous about walking in because they’re worried about making a fool of themselves, because I’ve done that on a number of occasions and continue to make my own. I become stupid all the time.
“And I think anyone can do it, when you’re under that kind of pressure. And hopefully they feel like we’re laughing at them and not at them, because I hate that case.”
