  • Tipping Point star Ben Shephard made several cheeky comments towards one of the contestants after he tried to switch up his tactics.

    The presenter, 48, welcomed Norm, Maria and Ash into the ITV studio as the three hopefuls went up against each other in a bid to win £10,000.

    After several attempts at hitting drop zone's one and two during the first round, Ash decided to change things up and go for a different zone.

    "I think I'm going to change tacs and go drop zone three," he explained as a shocked Ben responded: "Really?"

    Explaining that he could see a few counters lingering on the edge, Ash confirmed this is the route he wanted to take.

    The Good Morning Britain star replied: "Okay, let's go for it. Out of nowhere Ash is going for drop zone three."

    Adding to the subtle swipe, Ben continued: "Put three counters into two and nothing's come out, but he thinks it's all about three."

    "Is it going to pay off?" the presenter asked.

    After he failed to push anything off the tipping point, Ben chimed in: "Oh, Ash! Certainly looks a lot more tasty now."

    It was then Norm's turn to put some counters into the machine and he opted for drop zone two.

    Ben asked: "You not seeing what Ash saw in drop zone three yet?" as Norm muttered: "No I think I'll just stay with two."

    "No, no one is really," laughed Ben as he peered over at Ash who simply responded: "Thanks Ben."

    In the second round, Ash managed to answer four questions right which allowed him four counters to put into the machine.

    After Ash finally pushed some counters off the tipping point and landed some money in the bank, he chimed: "That's a bit more like it."

    Taking one final swipe, Ben responded: "Satisfying when it happens, isn't it?"

    The presenter was met with giggles from Ash who saw the funny side of his cheeky remarks.
