Tipping Point fans were left scratching their heads when one contestant tried a rather risky tactic during a tense round on the ITV game show.

The popular quiz show returned with its latest batch of contestants on Monday (18 October) – Susannah, Luke, Barry and Sudonna.

However, when London administrator Susannah walked into the studio, she was forced to leave the game after trying a controversial tactic during the first round which blew up in her face.

The player got off to a rocky start on the show as she failed to rack up any points during the opening round.

She was sitting in last place as her fellow contestants had all managed to bag counters from the machine, with Barry securing over £1000 after a lucrative drop.

But Susannah was so desperate to win points that she ended up cutting off host Ben Shephard before he had finished asking his question.

Before asking his penalty pot question, Ben told her: "Susannah, you're in last place. You've got to try and give me the correct answer to have any chance, okay?"

A nervous Susannah replied: "I know."

Ben began: "When referring to the item of cutlery, what is the first letter of the word…"

Susannah immediately pressed her buzzer and interrupted the presenter, answering: "S", assuming he was going to say "spoon".

She got it wrong though, because Ben revealed that it was actually "knife" that he was after.

Susannah burst out laughing at her error as Ben said:" I'm assuming you thought I might say 'spoon?'"

He then sympathised with her, saying:" You had to go for it Susannah, totally understand why."

She was then freezed out of he game and kicked off at the end of the round.

ITV viewers were left cringing at Susannah's failed tactic, with many flocking to Twitter to point out the flaws in her strategy.

One fan wrote: "Fgs Susannah you should of waited"

A second commented: "Ffs Susanna, even #tippingpoint is not gonna ask what the first letter of spoon is"

A third simply weighed in to say: "Oh my Christ"

A fourth said: "Jumping in early and f**king it up klaxon!"

A fifth savagely added: "Taxi for Susannah"
