Ben Shephard returned to ITV with a new series of Tipping Point Lucky Stars and welcomed Jason Manford, Iwan Thomas and Debbie McGee. The episode was filmed with social distancing in place meaning an audience was not present. As a result, ITV used canned laugher and a fake audience to provide background noise.

Unfortunately the fake laughter from the audience wasn’t a hit with viewers who claimed it was “over the top” and begged bosses to get rid of it.

Taking to Twitter to complain, one viewer posted: “The “woohs”, “yays” & “ahhs” from this fake audience are ridiculous #TippingPoint.”

A second added: “I love tipping point, I missed the beginning I’m guessing the audience is fake noise? If so it’s soo not good lol #tippingpoint.”

A third tweeted: “Audience are way too over the top for me #tippingpoint.”

“How about calming the canned audience noise down. It’s bloody awful.. #tippingpoint,” someone else shared.

A fifth continued: “Oh a socially distanced tipping point with the annoying fake audience noise #TippingPoint.”

Another added: “Is the audience just fake noise? No one is there #Tippingpoint.”

The celebrity edition saw Jason knocked out after the second round as he failed to collect enough money to progress.

This meant Iwan and Debbie made it to the penultimate round and after a tense head-to-head, Paul Daniels’ assistant knocked out her competitor.

Debbie was given the chance to play for the winning counter and £20,000 for her chosen charity.

However it wasn’t without its challenges as she had to answer enough questions correctly before taking on the Tipping Point machine.

Debbie chose to drop the jackpot counter in drop zone four as she believed this is where she’d be able to get the most amount of money.

She got off to a good start winning three counters when she answered her film question correctly.

Debbie failed on her food and drink question but managed to answer the literature question correctly.

With her next three counters she managed to win more money for her jackpot and a mystery prize, which was a bonus cash prize of £200.

Unfortunately she suffered a set back as she then answered a politics and human body question incorrectly.

When it came to her final question, Debbie took a risk and it paid off as she won her last three counters.

In the end it wasn’t enough as Debbie failed to get the jackpot counter.

She was given a last chance to take three extra counters to try and win the jackpot but Debbie chose not to take the risk.

The former magician’s assistant decided to walk away with £5200 for her chosen charity.

Tipping Point Lucky Stars airs weekdays on ITV at 4pm.
