I was on tipping point and bosses have a brutal trick up their sleeve when you try to change your answer

A TIPPING Point contestant has spilled the beans about what it’s like behind the scenes at the popular game show.

Contestant Di, who appeared on the ITV program in 2016, revealed what happened when she tried to change her answer in the first round.

Host Ben Shephard asked Di, “How many legs do members of the species known as homosapiens have?”

Stumbling over her answer, she initially said, “Fo – NO! Two!”

But the accidental slip meant bosses had to go with their first answer and re-recorded it, giving the answer as a four.

The player told delighted viewers that there were moments that were cut from the episode.

Di got her first question wrong: “The name of the dating app can also describe the dry material used to start a fire.”

She replied to Match, but the correct answer was Tinder.

Ben said it’s understandable that she got the question wrong because she’s a married woman and probably didn’t know what dating app it was on.

However, she revealed that Ben’s comments were edited from the episode.

Di also gave fans a detailed schedule of how long it took her to appear on the show.

She said she first applied in March 2016 and received an email inviting her to an audition.

A week later, she auditioned in London and after successfully securing a spot, returned in May to film the episode, with the episode airing in October 2017, a whopping 17 months later.

Discussing the show’s mysteries on her blog, Di said she was “frustrated” that it took so long to air, despite being told it would only last six to 12 months.

She said it meant she couldn’t appear on another quiz show until at least six months after Tipping Point aired – so she couldn’t apply for another show for about two years.

Di said multiple episodes are filmed each day – which means they need to arrive on time for their timeslot.

She said the train tickets were prepaid by the production team.

But there are some very strict dress codes as attendees are encouraged to bring “lots” of outfits and they can’t include heels.

“We had to take 5 tops and 2 bottoms – no white, no pastels, no black, no small patterns etc,” she wrote.

“I stopped by GAP and bought three different colors of the same top – and wasn’t allowed to wear any of them!

“You can’t wear heels either (Health & Safety), although my friend Sue thinks that being tall gives you a good advantage if you can see the switches…”

Di said contestants come to the studio with “regular makeup” but are touched up by the makeup team.

The team behind the scenes are so well prepared that they hand out absorbent armpit pads to prevent sweat stains.

Di admitted that rounds fly and when you lose you can watch from the sidelines.

The player praised presenter Ben for making it a pleasure to film with him and said he reassured the team and congratulated them when they did well.
