Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday
Tipping Point viewers were left scratching their heads on Monday afternoon as contestant Betty tried her luck on the tough ITV quiz show.
Host Ben Shephard welcomed four contestants to the famous studio as they battled it out to win the highly sought after cash prizes.
Betty, Ben, Chris and Rachel 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.
Things got off to a tricky start for Betty as she got a series of questions wrong during the first round of the competition, including on about the digital clock wrong.
Ben asked the contestant: "On a 24-hour clock, how is quarter to nine in the evening displayed?"
An unsure Betty answered: "9, 9."
Viewers at home were left feeling rather confused at the player's answer and rushed to their keyboards discuss the moment.
Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Quarter to nine in the evening is displayed as 99? Oh Betty!"
A second person posted:"Laughed out loud at Betty’s answer of 9,9."
While a third viewer said: "Oh Betty" alongside a seires of laughing emojis.
A fourth social media user said: "Oh dear some of those answers from Betty were ridiculous."
Betty's blunder saw her become the first contestant to get the boot from the latest edition of Tipping Point.
