Ben, 45, was on hand to interview four other Tipping Point players on Wednesday afternoon in hopes one of them would walk away with a big jackpot After a tense match, candidate Sharelle and her opponent Lesley fought to see who would be victorious However, during their one-on-one, the ITV presenter made a cheeky remark when it seemed like sex was in the brain in relation to a question about cocktails.
The question he asked was: « In the 1998 movie ‘The Big Lebowski’, Jeff Bridges’ character ‘The Dude’ is famous for drinking which vodka-based cocktail? »
It was Lindsey who got the chance to play if she knew the answer or move on to Sharelle in the hope that she didn’t either
« I have an idea, but it’s been a while since I’ve seen it I’m 50/50, » said the first, before adding, « I don’t think she’s old enough , bless her, then I think I will succeed «
With his opponent in the hot seat, Ben asked if the candidate had ever seen the film to which she replied that she hadn’t
« What we need is a vodka-based cocktail, » said Ben, the player discussing his thought process with the host.
« I just think a Mojito vodka is made from? But no, I’m going to have sex on the beach, ”confirmed Sharelle, who started the X-rated discussion
Ben then asked Lesley what she thought was the response to which she replied, « I was thinking about Screwdriver but I don’t know if I bought it elsewhere? »
With both responses being pretty scorching, the host looked down at the camera and said, « Screwdriver or sex on the beach? » Standard afternoon tipping point «
Lesley put his hand over his mouth as his opponent let out a shy chuckle as they both realized the options they had offered
After the X-rated innuendos stopped flying, Ben told contestants the answer was actually a white Russian
At the end of the one-on-one round, Sharelle got the upper hand as she managed to accumulate more money than Lesley
This meant that the former had the chance to play for the £ 10,000 grand prize or risk losing everything she had already accumulated
After failing to drop the star counter above the tipping point, Ben asked the player if she wanted to have three more tries to try and win big.

After some deliberation, she chose to walk away with £ 3,050 rather than risk losing her to try and claim £ 10,000
The charity worker was thrilled with the award she won before the host played the alternate script
Viewers then saw Sharelle being able to play three more markers, but it looks like she made the right choice as the star counter was not moving
Ben then praised the player for her efforts as she walked away with the cash and a pass for a family day out at a theme park
Speaking to social media, onlookers at home commented on the contestant’s performance as she doesn’t walk away with the grand prize
One of them wrote on Twitter: « Sharelle is an unreal #tippingpoint », with another post: « She is very good at eliminating the right answers from the start #tippingpoint »
The episode would likely have been filmed before the coronavirus pandemic as the host was still able to interact with the contestants at the end of the show
However, the presenter assured viewers that there would be new content in the coming weeks as he was back for filming new episodes over the summer.
