Ever fancied having a go at a game show on TV in a bid to win a big bundle of money? Well, now’s your chance.
ITV’s hit game show Tipping Point is currently on the search for new contestants with a proclivity for general knowledge to take on the counter machine in the new series.
In a video shared on Instagram, the programme’s presenter Ben Shephard encouraged those who are interested in participating to apply.
‘It’s been a bit of a rubbish start to the year,’ he said in the short clip.
‘If you want to set yourself a challenge for what has been a very tricky 2021 so far, something to get you out of your comfort zone, something that you’ve always wanted to do but never quite felt like you can go for it, well here’s your challenge from me.’
Ben revealed that filming for the new series is set to begin in a few months’ time.
‘I promise you’ll really really enjoy it,’ he added.
‘We can’t hug just yet, but you can win thousands of pounds, which – let’s face it – is way better.’
