Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Ben Shephard called one contestant out for "interrupting" him on Monday's Tipping Point, after player Abbi prematurely answered his quiz question.

The stunning brunette was keen to earn a few points in round two, trying her best to win as many counters as possible during the quickfire question round.

However, when Ben asked her the first question, about a form of nut spread, Abbi jumped to conclusions and suggested the answer was Nutella.

"The popular edible nut paste usually sold in crunchy or nut…" Ben started.

"Nutella?" Abbi interrupted, only for Ben to reveal it was the wrong answer.

Ben confirmed the answer had been peanut butter, accusing her of unwisely "interrupting" him on the show, suggesting if Abbi had waited to hear the rest of the question she would have earned a point.

Having earned just three points from the round, Ben pointed out: "You got three correct answers in there Abbi.

"I think if you'd waited… because you interrupted on the first one."

Abbi accepted she'd been in the wrong, as she replied: "Yeah…"

"The popular edible nut paste usually sold in crunchy or smooth form is peanut what? Peanut butter, now that's a great idea."

Ben also registered she'd interrupted him on another question, suggesting the interruptions had been the source of all her problems.

He mused: "You interrupted me on the solar system one as well."

Despite the slip-up, Abbi played a strong game, making it through to the semi-final against rival player Margaret.

Unfortunately, a lucky drop from Margaret – resulting in a whopping £1,000 payout – meant Abbi's chances of making it through to the final were severely reduced.

Though she earned a respectable £1,200, Abbi couldn't match Margaret's prize pot and was sent home with her head held high.

"I've had a great day," she told Ben, as he replied: "It's been lovely to meet you!"

Tipping Point airs on weekdays at 4pm on ITV.
