Tipping Point fans accuse player of not listening after movie question fail

Tipping Point fans accused contestants of "not listening" during the latest episode of the ITV show due to a bizarre answer.

Contestant Dylan, who is a charity fundraiser from Birmingham, proved just that when Ben Shepherd asked him who plays Mr Dawes Jr. in the remake of Mary Poppins starring Emily Blunt.

His answer to Ben's question was Emily Blunt.

Fans were quick to poke fun asking if they heard him write.

One joked: "Did I hear that right? Emily Blunt played Mr. Dawes Jr in Mary Poppins?!"

Another said: "MR Dawes Jr. played by EMILY F*****G BLUNT?!," and included a GIF were people holding there hands to their face in shock.

A third cringed and said: "Yeah it was Emily Blunt playing the MR role."

"Emily Blunt?! You idiot," commented another fan.

However, despite his slip up Dylan did make it to today's final after he knocked out contestant Julie.

Julie was very lucky first round having seven counters drop on her first go as well as a mystery prize, winning herself a speed boat ride and a supply of fresh pasta.

It was a bad start for the other contestants though as fans asked: "Have these contestants been living in a cave for years?"

Harry went out first followed by Melanie after she only won £300 as the others had over £1000 in their pots.

Fans questioned whether she was even trying, with one saying: "I think Mel had given up before her first question."

As Melanie left she said: "I've had a lovely day."

This led to fans questioning what makes their day so lovely.

One asked: "What exactly do they give the contestants to have a lovely day? #TippingPoint."

Another joked: "Must have provided lunch for them to have a lovely day #tippingpoint."

Another said: "Does a producer hold up a 'say you've had a lovely day today' board at the point where they're booted off?"

Tipping Point airs weekdays on ITV at 4pm
