This week, comedian and actor, John Thomson, The Royle Family favourite, Ricky Tomlinson, and Coronation Street Star, Simon Gregson will need quick wits and nerves of steel if they're to master the machine.
A game of knowledge, skill and tactics, Tipping Point is centred round an extraordinary machine filled with counters worth thousands of pounds. Players must answer questions to win turns on the machine. Get a question wrong and the machine won’t pay out. The player with the least amount of money at the end is eliminated.
This new prime time show will see the value of counters double to £100 and the jackpot will rise to £20,000. Three celebrities will compete in each show with the last player standing going head to head with the Tipping Point machine to win the golden jackpot disc. The money they win will be donated to a charity of their choice.
