Ben Shephard was on hand to put another batch of famous faces to the test against the famous machine on ITV’s Tipping Point: Lucky Stars. Sunday’s line-up included TV personality Rob Rinder, Olympian Greg Rutherford and This Morning star Josie Gibson. And each celeb had plenty of success against the machine – although arguably none more so than Josie.
As the three celebrities battled it out for a spot in the final in a bid to earn some money for their chosen charities, Josie had plenty to do to catch up.
With both Greg and Rob sat with four-figure sums in their cash pot, Josie had to pull off quite the achievement to catch them.
But she did just that, propelling her £100 to £1,800 after knocking off 17 counters in the second round, seeing off Greg’s score of £1,300.
However, it wasn’t just the cash which had Josie celebrating as she’d also knocked off not one, but two mystery prize counters.
However, it’s fair to say she wasn’t expecting the rewards Ben had to offer her.
Ben revealed Josie had won her very own Tipping Point swimsuit and deck chair for her trips to the beach.
And to make them extra unique, each item came with Ben’s face emblazoned all over them.
Teeing up the raunchy gift, Ben said: “You will be the envy of every beach bum this summer with your very own…Tipping Point swimsuit.”
“Is that your face?” a mortified Josie asked as she held her hand to her mouth.
Ben tried his best to keep a straight face after unveiling the personalised prizes.
And it wasn’t just Josie who was taken aback by the bizarre offerings.
“A #TippingPoint swimsuit and deckchair?!” one perplexed fan quizzed on Twitter.
“Josie can lie back on Ben Sheppard #tippingpoint,” a second joked.

Another weighed in: “Tippingpoint swim suit with Ben’s face on it [laugh emoji] his chin is in a precarious area @benshephard #TippingPoint.”
While a fourth added: “The Ben Shepard blanket merch has gone up in the world it’s turned into a deckchair and swim suit now [laugh emoji] I’m dead #Tippingpoint.”
The last fan was, of course, referring to a moment on Coronation Street when a character made a special Ben Shephard blanket.
And the wacky prizes didn’t stop there as Ben had another up his sleeve for Rob after he’d knocked Josie out and made it to the final.
This time, it was a Ben Shephard lollipop on offer for Rob to enjoy.
“I’m lost for words,” the Judge Rinder star joked as Ben began to giggle.
Sadly for Rob, he couldn’t knock the jackpot counter off the shelf and decided to take £7,100 he’d learnt for charity instead of three extra counters.
And his decision proved to be a wise one as the jackpot counter refused to budge.
Tipping continues weekdays at 4pm on ITV.
