BEN SHEPHARD will present Tipping Point - a 20 x ‘60 quiz show centred around an extraordinary machine filled with counters worth thousands of pounds.

A game of knowledge, skill and tactics; players must answer questions to win turns on the machine. Get a question wrong and the machine won’t pay out resulting in the player with the least amount of money at the end getting eliminated.

The last player standing goes head to head with the Tipping Point machine and they’ll be focussed on just one counter – the golden jackpot disc. Again, answering questions for the right to play the machine, they’ll win a big cash sum if they can make it release the jackpot counter.

Tipping Point is an RDF Television commission for ITV1. It was commissioned by Director of Factual and Daytime Alison Sharman and ITV Commissioning Editor for Factual and Daytime, Diana Howie. The Executive Producers for RDF are  Jim Allen, Peter Usher, and Hugh Rycroft.

Commissioning Editor for ITV Factual and Daytime, Diana Howie said:      

“We are really looking forward to Tipping Point. Thousands of pounds will literally hang in the balance every day and it’s great to bring a new and exciting quiz format to our viewers alongside the great success of our established quiz, The Chase.”             

Peter Usher, Head of Entertainment for RDF Television, said

“It’s a quiz show which you watch on the edge of your seat. Nerve-wracking for the players, hugely entertaining for the viewers. You just never know when the Tipping Point will be reached.”
