TIPPING Point viewers were left infuriated after a contestant on the show followed his daughter’s “ridiculous” advice.
On Wednesday evening, the popular ITV game show saw three new famous faces – Wilma, Dylan and Glen – take on the machine.

All three had high hopes of winning over the machine to claim the jackpot, but it was Dylan who managed to make it as the last contestant standing.
Dylan got off the starting block to a flying start after Glen passed his correct question counter to him, hoping he would only make a dent in the machine.
However, his lucky coin managed to not only knock eight counters down and score him £400, but he also won a mystery prize of a boozy afternoon tea hamper.
As the show progressed, Wilma left the first after Glen leapfrogged her, and Dylan thought he was next, but luckily for him, Glen fell one counter and £50 short of making it to the final.
Advancing with his £1,350, it was time for Dylan to put the jackpot counter into the machine, and he decided to go for drop zone three.
However, his choice of drop zone for the jackpot counter sparked some online outrage, with many fans questioning if he had ever seen the show.
Taking to Twitter, one person penned: “Who the f**k has ever won by going in the third drop zone? Terrible move.”
Echoing their comments, someone else said: “What is he doing? Counters in the third drop zone often get pushed across into other zones, making it almost impossible to win.”
While a third remarked: “Honestly, has he ever seen this game before?”
Dylan’s drop zone choice cut even deeper as just before placing the jackpot coin, he stated that he was “following his daughter’s advice.”
He said: “My daughter Bella was one of the people who inspired me to go on.”
“She said, ‘Go for the one where at the top you have got a chance of getting it a counter down.’
“I think based on that, I will go for drop zone three.”
Despite failing to budge the jackpot counter to the finishing line, he chose to take the cash and left with £2,150.
Tipping Point airs weekdays at 4pm on ITV.
