BEN Shephard was stunned into silence after a Tipping Point contestant revealed that they didn't want to play anymore.
Tuesday afternoon's episode saw Ben joined by Joe, Pam and Mandip, with the trio all bidding to claim the coveted jackpot counter.
Each player went head to head and faced the machine to win a life-changing sum of money.
However, Pam was left disappointed when Joe managed to swoop in and steal a handful of counters after Pam failed to knock them off.
During the first round, Pam's first two attempts to get something off of the shelf were unsuccessful.
The first time Joe cheekily swooped in and stole a few from the ones she had previously pushed forward.

Answering his second question correctly, Ben quipped: "Joe, are you going to clean up Pam's hard work again?"
Joe managed to push his counter forward and tipped off a large number of counters, turning to Pam: "Thanks, Pam."
In disbelief, Pam laughed and said to Ben: "I'm not playing anymore!"
As the round went on, Joe stormed ahead and managed to end the round with £1,750, Mandip with £250 and Pam still on zero.
During the second round, Pam's luck began to change as she managed to bank £500 and won one of the mystery counters.
As she waited for the counters to drop, she pleaded: "Please let me have something," before celebrating: "Thank goodness for that – hooray!"
Despite the change in luck for Pam, it wasn't enough as Joe ended the round with £2,700 – putting him in the final.
