Tipping Point viewers baffled after question blunder about Swiss chocolate gives away the answer

TIPPING Point viewers were left baffled after a question blunder about Swiss chocolate gave away the answer.

Tonight's instalment of the ITV games show's celebrity special saw Bake Off's Tom Allen, comedian Melvin Odoom and Coronation Street's Patti Clare try to win £20,000 for their chosen charities.

Within the first 15 minutes of the episode, fans accused producers of "dumbing down" the questions for the famous faces in a bid to win the hefty cash prize.

With a counter up for grabs in the penalty pot, host Ben Shephard asked the trio one last question to see if they could up their winnings.

He asked: "Swiss chocolate is traditionally from which European country?"

Soap star Patti was straight in there and confidently replied the obvious answer – Switzerland.

But many fans couldn't get over how obvious the question was and took to Twitter to share their confusion.

One wrote: "Swiss chocolate is originally from which European country? F***ing seriously? #TippingPoint."

Another said: "Swiss chocolate traditionally comes from which country?" Not exactly Mastermind. #TippingPoint."

A third added: "It's Switzerland durh #Tippingpoint."

A fourth chimed in: "#tippingpoint Swiss chocolate comes from which European country. Answer: Switzerland. Dudes I know it is dumbed down for celebs, if that is even possible … but really?"

It comes after viewers were left open-mouthed by contestant’s "shameful" geography blunder in the first round earlier this week.

Host Ben asked player Kirk what country a native Parisian comes from, only for the participant's response to be "pass".

The blunder from a red-faced Kirk sent fans on Twitter into hysterics.

A fan typed: "How dare you pass on France, Kirk?" along with a GIF captioned Shame, Shame, Shame.

One viewer chuckled: "What country does a Parisian come from? Pass", with a series of cry-laughing emojis.
