Tipping Point: Ricky Wilson leaves ITV show in chaos after ‘stealing’ from set

ITV quiz show Tipping Point airs every weekday where four members of the public try their luck at taking home the jackpot. However, the show also has a number of Lucky Stars editions which feature celebrities. This evening’s show featured three more trying to bag some money for charity but Ricky Wilson stole the jackpot counter after tonight’s rollercoaster final round.


The quiz programme – fronted by Ben Shephard – sees opponents try and make it through to the final round where they have the opportunity to win a serious amount of money. 

Tonight’s weekend edition featured Kaiser Chiefs frontman, Ricky Wilson, actress Chizzy Akudolu and comedian Russell Kane. 

The stars fought it out to build up some money to give to their chosen charities and all hoped to make it through to the final round. 

Russell struggled to reap the rewards of the machine this evening and was knocked out first.

This meant it was up to Chizzy and Ricky to go head-to-head in order to try and get the chance to win some big money. 

At one point, the pressure seemed to get too much for Ricky as he told Ben: “I don’t like this anymore, can we just share it, Ben?”

The host replied: “It needs a little bit more encouragement,” before Ricky managed to obtain some more money from the machine. 

Despite a close round, Ricky eventually stormed ahead of his opponent and Chizzy was eliminated from the competition. 

Chizzy and Russell were both able to keep the money accumulated to give to their charities but Ricky hoped to go one better.

The singer had success with his first four questions in the final, acquiring three counters with each but struggled on his penultimate question. 

Ben asked Ricky: “People who attend ‘champing’ breaks enjoy spending their time camping in which one of these places? ”

The correct answer was churches but Ricky gave the wrong answer of cheeseries leading him to narrowly avoid swearing on camera: “Ah knickers! Can I say knickers?”

He had one final question left in order to give him a chance to get the all-important jackpot counter over the line. 

Luckily, he answered correctly giving him three new counters and on the last try, he secured the £20,000 for his charity. 

However, left shocked at his last-minute win, the singer went up to the machine, took the jackpot counter out and ran off with it. 

He brought the counter back to Ben and told him the money would be going to the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Upon his victory, those watching at home took to Twitter to comment on the tense finale, with one saying: “Ricky is a legend #tippingpoint.”

Another added: “Ricky Wilson on #tippingpoint just made me cry HARD.”

“Greatest Tipping Point ever thanks to Ricky Wilson absolutely shot it,” commented a third. 

Tipping Point will be back tomorrow for another Lucky Stars edition, but will any of the celebrities manage to win £20,000 for their chosen charity?
