Daily Star TV gives you all the latest interviews and spoilers and Ed Gleave will send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Ben Shephard was left speechless during the latest throwback edition of Tipping Point: Lucky Stars.

After beating off stiff competition from his fellow competitors sports journalist Henry Blofled and Pussycat Dolls singer Melody Thornton, comedian Joe Lycett revealed he was wearing some "lucky pants".

The comic went on to show the host his underwear, which features several pictures of Ben's face.

Joe's blue outlandish boxers were so fetching that the television personality kept his trousers down and showed them off throughout the show.

"These pants are worth their weight in gold," Joe said as he sailed through to the final.

"I can’t stop staring at me", said Good Morning Britain star Ben

When asked how the pants made him feel, Ben replied: "Nervous" and added it was "disconcerting".

Joe joked that he felt "uncomfortable" wearing them.

As Joe answered more questions he ended up with a considerable £6,300. But sadly, he did not get over the tipping point – despite wearing his "lucky pants".

However, Ben offered the Geordie comic a trade. Three more “counters” to try but if the machine didn’t tip, he would lose £5,000.

At this point, Joe said his lucky pants “felt heavier”. He also said the owner of his charity of choice would want him to take the risk so he decided to go for it – to the audience’s delight.

Despite being “very nervous” the machine did as Joe wanted and he got his £20,000 grand prize for charity – the Tamworth Wellbeing and Cancer Support Centre.

Joe said: "That’s an amazing amount of money. The charity does amazing things for cancer patients and their families and will benefit so massively from this money."

It's not the first time Ben has been left a bit red-faced by cheeky contestants.

Tess Daly made a very flirty offer to the handsome host, involving the pair of them doing a "Romba" together.

During her introduction, Tess told Ben: "I'm Tess Daly, I'm probably best known for presenting Strictly Come Dancing, and tonight I'm hoping to dance rings around the opposition, waltz off with £20,000."

She then invited Ben for a dance, saying: "And who knows, perhaps Ben and myself might get together for a celebratory Romba…"

Ben looked quite flustered for a moment as the studio burst out with a collective "Oooh!".
