Tipping Point host Ben Shephard struggled to hold back the tears as contestant Clive managed to win £20,000 – the biggest jackpot in the show’s history.
The scenes, which were first broadcast in March, still struck a chord with fans as they watched from home on Wednesday evening.
Ben was shocked as Clive became the first player on the programme to tip over a double jackpot token in the final round to win the top prize.
‘I am knocked over. Thank you so much,’ Clive said, totally taken aback by his success.
Ben said: ‘Clive, I have stood in front of this machine over a thousand times. The only time that has happened was when it was on a tray that didn’t get taken.’
Welling up, Ben said: ‘Clive, you’ve done it. I can’t believe you have done it!’
The pair shared a hug, before Ben asked: ‘How does that feel Clive?’
‘Fantastic,’ Clive replied.
The moment had viewers in an equally emotional mood, as they watched the moment play out again.
‘Awwwww made up for you Clive £20k enjoy!’ one wrote.
‘I think Clive winning £20,000 on tipping point is the best thing to happen this year, just screamed the house down absolutely buzzing for the man,’ another said.
Tipping Point airs on ITV.
