Ben Shephard slams Tipping Point contestants as ‘lightning fast’ player wins

Ben Shephard was impressed on Thursday's Tipping Point, as an extremely speedy contestant stepped up to the plate.

In a subtle swipe, the ITV star suggested the other contestants were too slow, urging them to pick up the pace in order to beat leading player Anne.

In the first round, Anne succeeded in answering a stream of correct answers just moments into the show, landing counter after counter.

Her rivals didn't have the chance to beat her to the punch, as Ben branded the quiz hopeful as "lightning fast".

Apologising for stealing all the counters, Anne turned to her rivals and said: "I'm sorry."

However, Ben was quick to snap at her rivals, saying: "Don't be sorry.

"If you know the answers and you're quicker than this lot."

Later, Anne had run out of chances to win, as Ben joked her competitors finally had the opportunity to play.

He joked: "For the time being you're out, which is good news for Brogan, Steven, and Jorden because they're going to get a look in."

Unfortunately, Anne's luck ran out in the second round, when Stephen and Brogan managed to beat the sum in her prize pot.
