Ben Shephard floored as ‘savage’ Tipping Point player slams another contestant

Tipping Point fans branded one contestant as "savage" on this evening's show, when she knocked her competitor's wrong answer.

With the competition heating up, Ben Shephard hosted as Martin and Una remained in the final two, battling it out to make it into the grand finale.

When a question about geography popped up, former schoolteacher Una was quick to slam Martin's answer, rightly convinced she was correct.

It all kicked off when Ben asked: "Until 1972, the Asian country Sri Lanka was officially known by what name?"

In a flash, Una answered: "Ceylon."

However, when Ben asked Martin which answer he would give, he replied: "I probably wouldn’t have said Ceylon, I would have said Siam."

Making a face, Una scoffed, and replied: "No, no. It's not Siam."

Surprised by her cheeky remark, Ben exclaimed: "Una you seem pretty confident…"

However, Una proved she had every reason to be confident, as "Ceylon" was proven to be the correct answer.

Thrilled by her victory, she shouted: "Yes!"

Thailand, not Sri Lanka, was formerly known as "Siam," and the central and southern regions of the country are still associated with the name today.

Pointing out Martin's blunder, Ben added: "Siam is Thailand."

Meanwhile, over on Twitter, viewers expressed their surprise over Una's sassy comeback, as they made it clear she was an intimidating opponent.

One said: "Una ‘ no it’s not Siam’ some savagery there #TippingPoint."

"The teacher coming out. She will put him on detention next," added a second.

And a third chimed: "No don’t mess with Una!"

Unfortunately, despite her cracking quiz skills, Una was beaten at the final hurdle and failed to make it to the finale, leaving Martin to scoop up the jackpot.

Tipping Point airs on weekdays at 4pm on ITV.
