Tipping Point first started airing on ITV in July 2012 and quickly took off in popularity with viewers.
The game show, presented by Ben Shephard, tests contestants on their general knowledge, with each correct answer letting them win counters which they use on a large coin pusher arcade-style machine.
The winner at the end has a chance to take home any money; the others leave with nothing except any non-cash prizes they may have won during the game.
After becoming popular with audiences at home, the show decided to add some celebrity sparkle, with famous faces taking part in special episodes in the hope of winning £20,000 for charity.
