Tipping Point fans fume as player makes major slip-up during make-or-break round

Tipping Point was back on our screens this afternoon as ITV aired another throwback episode of the popular game show.

Host Ben Shephard welcomed four contestants to the famous ITV studio as they battled it out to win the highly sought after cash prizes.

John Paige, James and Angie answered a series of questions to win turns on an arcade-style machine.

Dropping tokens down a choice of four chutes, they each hoped to knock piles of the counters off a moving shelve – the more they collected, the greater the prize fund.

James was the first contestant to be sent packing and Paige quickly followed her team mate out the door leaving John and Angie to battle it out for a spot in the final.

ITV viewers were left with their heads in their hands during the penultimate round as contestant Angie made a major blunder on a question about music.

Ben asked Angie, 50, which female solo artist had released their debut album in the 1980s.

There was no multiple choice answers to help her so the contestant guessed Dido.

The host quickly told Angie she had answered the question incorrectly and the answer was Kate Bush.

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Dido in the 80s? WTF?"

Another added: "Dido???? She wasn't even born."

A third posted: "Dido was only 15 years ago."

While a fourth wrote: "Dido in the 1980s? Kate Bush surely."

"Shocked in the film category she did not say Dido," a fifth fan joked.

Singer-songwriter Dido, 48, released her debut album in 1999.

The blonde singer, who was born on December 25 1971, attained international success with her debut album No Angel. Hit singles from the album include "Here with Me" and "Thank You".

Despite a slow start, and her major mistake int he make-or-break round, Angie successfully made it through to the final round and took home the £10,000 jackpot.

Tipping Point airs weekdays on ITV at 5pm
