ITV Tipping Point questions can be seriously tough, leaving contestants stumped at the variety of things they’re answering.

Host Ben Shepherd asks questions, and contestants get to choose where in the arcade-style machine they’d like to place a counter to win cash prizes. The more coins they can get out of the machine, the more money they make – but first, they have to answer questions correctly, and often they’re difficult.
