Tipping Point player makes huge royal question blunder – which costs him dearly

Tipping Point fans were left stunned after a contestant made a right royal blunder.

ITV contestant Lloyd joined host Ben Shephard and two fellow competitors in a bid to win a large cash prize on Thursdsay's episode (May 25).

Yet the activities coordinator from Portsmouth, who arrived on-set in a bright colourful shirt and sporting a blonde curly hairstyle, was left stumped when Ben Shephard asked a Royal Family question.

Ben asked: “"In the history of the British monarchy, how many queens have there been with the name Elizabeth?"

Lloyd, who appeared perplexed, replied: “Three.”

It was left to show anchor Ben to point out the correct answer, with their having only been two.

Fans were quick to react, blasting the answer given the very recent death of Queen Elizabeth II and how prominently it was featured on TV.

One fan commented: " *Three* queens named Elizabeth ? Let's be generous and attribute it to the pressure of the studio …"

Another added: “Yes, Lloyd – there have been three queens called Elizabeth!” followed by a gif that claimed “you fu***ng donkey”.

“oh yes my favourite monarch, Queen Elizabeth III,” another mocked, while a fourth penned: “Queen Elizabeth III?! Lloyd! does he watch the news?”

Lloyd’s luck didn't improve later in the show, and he was the first star to be booted out after an impressive comeback from rival player Anne.

Fellow players Jay and Anne went through to the next round to battle it out for a spot in the final.

Jay was ultimately victorious and even managed to land the £10k jackpot counter.

Fans congratulated the former broadcaster on his victory and making some major question blunders of his own and getting off to a slow start.

“Jay pulled that back from the brink. Well done Sir,” said one fan.

“Wow. A retired vegetarian radio DJ who two-counter wanked in the end won £10,000. This game’s full of surprises,” penned a second.

A third chimed in, saying: “Well done Jay Crawford, who just won £10k on #tippingpoint, never expected him to win that one after a bad start!”

Tipping Point airs weekdays on ITV1 and ITVX at 4pm
