Tipping Point fans were left baffled after ITV host Ben Shephard asked an unusually easy question during the latest episode of the hit series.

During Friday's edition of the hit ITV quiz show, the Good Morning Britain host asked the four contestants to name the country that the city of Nottingham is in.

While geography questions are not unusual on Tipping Point, with Nottingham being in the UK, some fans were left bemused.

Some viewers even wondered if Ben had ready the question wrong - perhaps thinking he meant 'which county' rather than 'which country'.

Baffled by the question, one viewer moaned: "Which country is Nottingham in? That's a new low for #tippingpoint questions."

However, another chimed in accusing Ben of making a mistake.

They tweeted: "Ben read the question wrong, it was 'which county is Nottingham in?' #tippingpoint."

However, a third viewer was simply happy for the city to get a mention.

The fan tweeted: "Shout out for Nottingham there. Yay #tippingpoint."

Despite the unusual situation, it wasn't referenced by either Ben or the four contestants, Joe, Sylvia, Antonio and Victoria.

During the quick fire round, Antonio simply replied 'England' to which Be replied 'correct' before moving on to the next snappy question.

Regardless of whether host Ben made an error, it wouldn't have changed the outcome of the show.

Antonio was the lucky hopeful who managed to make it through to Friday's final.

The star explained to Ben that if he was able to win a large sum of money he would like to buy a campe van to drive round Europe and the UK with his dog shows.

By the end of the final, Antonio had £3050 in the prize pot.

However, in a heart-stopping gamble he took the three final tokens in a bid to win the bumper £10,000 prize.

In an amazing turn of events, Antonio managed to win the jackpot prize.

In shock, Ben said: "I genuinely can not believe that.

"That was one of the most bonkers trades I have ever seen anyone take and you got it out in two coins."
