Tipping Point viewers were 'crying' with laughter as presenter Ben Shephard completely 'lost it' over a contestant’s answer.
Fans of the hit ITV gameshow couldn’t contain themselves – and neither could Ben, who collapsed into a solid minute of laughter.
Contestant John was asked what term is given to an ongoing argument with someone – to have 'something' with them.
And he answered 'rancid', which tipped Ben right over the edge.
After giggling for a solid minute, Ben managed to speak through his giggles, telling poor John: "It’s a lovely answer, but it’s not rancid I’m afraid – it’s beef!"
Viewers flocked to Twitter to share their own giggles over the gaffe, with one writing: "That tickled Ben!"
"Ben’s happy now!" another chuckled.
And someone else wrote in reference to ITV airing repeats filmed before the pandemic: "Ben is still laughing now a year on from filming."
A fourth fan typed through the tears: "I've never seen @benshephard lose it before. I'm crying!"
Others were cracking up at John's 'rancid' reply, with one joking: "'You got beef with me, mate?' 'Nah, I got rancid'."
Another laughed: "Oh, I do love a bit of rancid with my Yorkshire puddings and gravy!"
"I now have rancid with John," someone else penned.
And another incredulous fan wrote: "Rancid? You have rancid with someone, not beef?"
Ben couldn't resist dropping another one-liner into the show after John's slip-up left him red-faced, adding as one contestant answered correctly: "There's nothing rancid about that!"
Contestant Alex had jaws dropping both in the studio and at home, as he managed to scoop a massive £1,000 from just one drop.
He scored the double counter and dropped a whopping 10 counters at once.
And he and John made it through to the final head-to-head.
John was eventually crowned the winner of the episode, and went on to play for the final jackpot counter.
But some Tipping Point fans were sad to see 'handsome' Alex lose out, with one writing: "Handsome Alex left!"
Others took to social media to congratulate John on his win, with one saying: "Nice bunch today on #TippingPoint, pleased that John got through to the final. Good luck John!"
And someone else said: "John is a worthy polite winner."
Later, John had Ben giggling again as the presenter asked: "Have you ever been to Venice?"
"Yes," replied John, before changing his mind and saying "No. I was thinking of Florence."
"I was having another rancid moment!" John giggled, as Ben laughed in agreement.
"You’ve had a few!" the presenter joked.
