BEN Shephard was left gobsmacked after a Tipping Point contestant got a simple digital clock question seriously wrong.
On Monday's show, the 46-year-old host asked the four contestants: "On a 24 hour digital clock how is quarter to nine in the evening displayed?"
Contestant Betty buzzed in and under pressure to answer, she surprisingly replied: "9 9."
Ben then told her the correct answer was actually: "20.45."
Viewers took to Twitter to comment on Betty's simple mistake, with one writing: "Q: How is a quarter to nine in the evening depicted in digital form? A: 9 9."
Another tweeted alongside some rolling eyes emojis: "Shephard "On a 24 hour digital clock how is quarter to nine in the evening displayed?" Betty "9 9" Shephard "20:45".
A third added: "As old as Betty is she still can't tell the time."
Meanwhile a fourth wrote: "Laughed out loud at Betty’s answer of 9,9."
It came as little surprise to anyone watching that Betty was the first to reach her Tipping Point and exit the show.
She didn't seem to mind though, and told Ben she had had "a lovely day, thank you."
Betty's experience was in stark contrast to one of last week's shows, when viewers complained contestants breezed through with the "easiest questions on any game show".
Contestant Richard managed to get five questions correct before running out of time – but fans were quick to point out an incredibly easy question about the alphabet.
Ben asked Richard: "What is the penultimate letter of the English alphabet?"
Richard of course answered "Y" – which led to many fans to complain about how easy the question was.
Tipping Point airs weekdays at 4pm on ITV.
