Tipping Point fans cringe as contestant suffers embarrassing geography blunder

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.

Liz, Luke, Meryl and David 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.

Contestant Yvonne managed to make it through to the final round despite making a major geography blunder in the penultimate round.

Viewers at home were left baffled as the hopeful guessed that Mont Blac was found in Africa, and not France.

Taking to Twitter, one shocked fan penned: Mont Blac? In Afria? You sure Yvonne?

Another added: "Mont Blanc has been relocated to Africa apparently."

A third penned: "Did she really say Mont Blanc?"

A fourth joked: "Some great answers Yvonne, but you did also say Mont Blanc was in Africa."

While a fifth said: "Contestant on Tipping Point thinks Mont Blanc is the highest point in Africa. Other contestant thinks the actor The Rock real name is Rock Hudson. Why would you go on a quiz show?"

Mont Blanc is the second-highest mountain in Europe after Mount Elbrus.

It is the highest mountain in the Alps, rising 4,808 m above sea level and the eleventh-most prominent peak in the world.

Yvonne ended up leaving the show today with £2,750 in her pocket.
